SQL Update statement in ASP page

I'm currently trying to update a small database using a sql statement on an asp page.  The line of code reads as follows:

"UPDATE tbl_Personal SET Email="request.form("email")" WHERE Username="request.cookies("MyCookie")("Username")""

This gives the error "expected end of statement".  I'm guessing it's a syntax error as if I replace the line with the following:

"UPDATE tbl_Personal SET Email='a@a.com' WHERE Username='John'"

...it works as expected and updates the record.  I've tried various syntaxes and tried declaring the textbox value and cookie value as variables but I'm still stuck.  Hope someone can help!

Thanks

Thanks, i'll give that a go.  Can I request a cookie value for the WHERE clause?

you can but, the syntax you had the statement in didn't make sense...just remember to put your variables in the correct format...like I did with email and username
