Insert Multiple Variables into the same SQL Data field

Hello Experts!

I am still new to Visual Basic.NET, and I have seemed to run into an obstacle I can readily solve.  Here is what I am trying to do.  I am writing a custom record insertion form to generate hyperlinks and insert them in to a Database table Data field.  The content of the hyperlinks need to be based on user input.

For example: <a href=http://server/[user input from textbox1]/[more user input from textbox2].pdf>[Display Text from textbox3]</a>

I have been able to insert into the target data field from a textbox a which the user has input information, and assigned it to a button to load and return the newly inserted data, however I need the whole hyperlink to be inserted into the same target data field.

I have tried to add variables in between the single quotes required to define a variable in a sql statement with the “&” and the “+”.  At design time Visual Basic does not have a problem with it, but a run time it fails.

Does anybody know of an effective way to accomplish this?  I need the whole hyperlink to insert into the target data field.

Here is the code I have so far:

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim dataset1 As New DataSet
        dataset1 = New DataSet("dataset1")

        Dim ConnectionString As String = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;data sourc" & _
        "e=LOGSOHFIL01;persist security info=False;initial catalog=MasterFileIndex"

        Dim Connection1 As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)

        Dim Command1 As OleDbCommand = _
        New OleDbCommand("INSERT INTO test (First_Name, Last_Name, Info) values ('" & TextBox1.Text & "  ', ' " & TextBox2.Text & " ', '" & TextBox3.Text & "') select* FROM test")
        Command1.CommandType = CommandType.Text

        Command1.Connection = Connection1

        Dim OleDbDataAdapter1 As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter

        OleDbDataAdapter1.SelectCommand = Command1
        OleDbDataAdapter1.Fill(dataset1, "authors")

        DataGrid1.SetDataBinding(dataset1, "authors")
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub
End Class

Thanks for your help!

I found my own answer:)  All i had to do was to write the collect all of the data and place the rest of the HTML for the hyperlink code into one variable and send it to sql.
