Dreamweaver Master Page generates error after Updating

I have Dreamweaver generated Master/Update forms.

I open the master file and click on the record I want to update.  The record comes up and I make my changes and then click submit.  Record updates the database and puts me back to the master page just like it's supposed to.  I click on the same or another record and I get an error message.  This error will continue until I close out IE and reopen it.  Then it works fine until I update a record and we repeat the sequence.  The error looks like this:
 Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Line 1: Incorrect syntax near ','.
/helpdesk/update.asp, line 113

Line 113 is the line that opens the recordset.  I've tried a forced refresh on the page and that didn't work.  Only closing out the browser works.  If I click the link on the master page and look at the record but don't update, everything works fine.  I can open as many records as I want.  It's only when I update the record that I have an issue.  Can someone give me an idea of where to look for this error?  It seems to be generated on the update page, but at this point I'm not sure.

Hi peggyk2,

Is a query string being appended to the URL when you get redirected the first time?

Yes.  The URL does have a query.  http://webserver/page.asp?ProblemID=4   Out of my frustration I finally deleted the page and I'm rebuilding it to see if it was a fluke or if I'm actually doing something wrong.  This is the first time I've run across this problem.

It might have something to do with the query string being present when you go to the update page a second time.  It could also be something else that the rebuild will take care of.  If the problem continues, post the source code for both pages.

After rebuilding the page from scratch, I still had the problem but I figured out what it was doing.   When I updated the form and submitted it, I was taken back to the Master page so I could continue updating other records.  When I went back to the master page, the URL Query was in the address line and the only way I could get it out so it stayed out, was to retype the address without the query  and then refresh.  Just refreshing the page didn't help.  I even tryed using the full internet link to the master page, but that didn't work.  I solved the problem by redirecting to a page stating the record has been updated and by giving a link from there back to the master page.  Kind of a roundabout way to do it, but it works and for what I need it for, it's acceptable.  Thank you for your help.  If you hadn't brought that URL query string to my attention, I never would have figured it out.

You're welcome.  A similar issue exists in PHP, which is why I thought of it.  I've stopped using the query string for a lot of issues because of this.
