 when i try to run this code i'm getting an error:

Dim theUser = "foo"
Dim theEvent = "foo"
   
'Specify the SQL query
            Const sql As String = "UPDATE event_claims SET deleted = 0 WHERE userID = " & g & " AND eventID = " & theEvent


when does it expect these variables to the be constants?   this was certainly not hte case in 1.1.  what's up with this?

You can't use a constant and assign it the value of a non constant expression. Change it to

Dim sql As String = "UPDATE event_claims SET deleted = 0 WHERE userID = " & g & " AND eventID = " & theEvent
