500 pts to the first person to Parameterize this ASP/MS SQL INSERT statement

First person to convert the below code into a working Parameterized Query wins. :P

Basically, I've been having the problem that if someone puts a single quote into any of the fields, it breaks the code. I've read that by using parameters, I won't have that problem anymore. I can include ADOvbs.inc myself, just get me the code that will work gentleman/ladies. Thanks so much.

You are going to have to make sure that the proper validation is happening against the request variables.
Make sure that they are not null etc. You asked for a parameterized query.

one thing you could do is response.write out the request variable data so that you can see what is missing or messing up the query.

if you are using the post method you could do this at the start of the processing page.

response.write request.form
response.end



so if n_america is messing you up I would wonder if it is a check box or something like that because those items won't even exist if it isn't checked I believe.
