Inserting data with AccessDataSource control

I am trying to insert data from a form into an Access database.

I am using ASP.NET 2.0 and an AccessDataSource control as follows

    <asp:AccessDataSource ID="contactUsAccessDataSource" runat="server" DataFile="~/App_Data/Moesc8.MDB"
        InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [tblNameAddress] ([FirstName], [LastName], [TimeStamp2], [Address1], [City], [State], [ZipCode], [Email], [WorkPhone], [Fax], [Comments]) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [tblNameAddress]" >
         <InsertParameters>
            <asp:FormParameter Name="fname" FormField="firstNameTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="lname" FormField="lastNameTextBox" />
            <asp:ControlParameter Name="time" Type="DateTime" ControlID="dateTimeLabel" />  
            <asp:FormParameter Name="address" FormField="addressTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="city" FormField="cityTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="state" FormField="stateDropDown" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="zip" FormField="zipTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="email" FormField="emailTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="phone" FormField="phoneTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="fax" FormField="faxTextBox" />
            <asp:FormParameter Name="comments" FormField="commentsTextBox" />
       
             
        </InsertParameters>
    </asp:AccessDataSource>

However, when I click on the submit button, I get the error message "System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Index or primary key cannot contain a Null value.".

This is the code for the method called when the submit button is clicked:


    protected void submitButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
        contactUsAccessDataSource.Insert();
         
    }

If anyone could help out I'd appreciate it.

Which is your primary key? Are you passing value this field?

I found the problem. I thought that ID (an autonumber field in the Access db) was my primary key, but it turned out that first name, last name, and time were my primary keys. I edited the database to make the ID my primary key and now my code works!
