I currently have a form that sends data to a page that sends it to the database,

//Form code

<form action="../Copy%20of%20flashsystem/addcomment.asp" method="post" name="commentform" onSubmit="MM_validateForm('Name','','R','Email','','NisEmail','Comment','','R');return document.MM_returnValue">
  <table width="0" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
    <tr>
      <td width="38">Name:</td>
      <td width="251"><input type="text" name="Author"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Email:</td>
      <td><input type="text" name="Author_Email"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2">Comments:
      <textarea name="Comment" cols="45" rows="7"></textarea></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2"><input  name="FlashID" type="hidden" value="<% = lngRecordNo %>" >
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"></td>
    </tr>
  </table>
  <p>&nbsp;</p>
</form>

It sends it to a page called addcomment.asp

//addcomment.asp

<%
'Dimension variables
Dim adoCon              'Holds the Database Connection Object
Dim rs   'Holds the recordset for the new record to be added
Dim strSQL               'Holds the SQL query to query the database

'Create an ADO connection object
Set adoCon = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

'Set an active connection to the Connection object using a DSN-less connection
adoCon.Open "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("flashdb.mdb")

'Create an ADO recordset object
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

'Initialise the strSQL variable with an SQL statement to query the database
strSQL = "SELECT tblComments.Author, tblComments.Comment, tblComments.Author_Email FROM tblComments;"

'Set the cursor type we are using so we can navigate through the recordset
rs.CursorType = 2

'Set the lock type so that the record is locked by ADO when it is updated
rs.LockType = 3

'Open the recordset with the SQL query
rs.Open strSQL, adoCon

'Tell the recordset we are adding a new record to it
rs.AddNew

'Add a new record to the recordset
rs.Fields("Author") = Request.Form("Author")
rs.Fields("Author_Email") = Request.Form("Author_Email")
rs.Fields("Comment") = Request.Form("comment")
rs.Fields("FlashID") = Request.Form("FlashID")

'Write the updated recordset to the database
rs.Update

'Reset server objects
rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing
Set adoCon = Nothing

'Redirect to the guestbook.asp page
Response.Redirect "FlashPage.asp"
%>

I am getting this error message when i click the submit button:

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

/flashsystem/addcomment.asp, line 35

How can i fix this? im sure its really simple and im overlooking something...
