Hi,

I want to be able to insert multiple rows into my sql server database using the data captured by my form.

I know how to inert data into a table, but not how to loop and insert several rows.

What I need to do is insert say:

ireferredby
ifriendname1
ifriendemail1

Into the first row,

Then

ireferredby
ifriendname2
ifriendemail2

Into the second and so on, obviously ignoring a row if ifriendemail is null.

Any validation on the email field would be great as well.


<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
 
<% Dim ModeType
 
ModeType = "view"
If (Request.QueryString("mode") <> "") Then 
  ModeType = Request.QueryString("mode")
 
End If
 
%>
 
 
<%
Set OBJdbConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
OBJdbConn.Open = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;" & _
       "Data Source=xxx;" & _
       "Initial Catalog=xxx;" & _
	   "User ID=xx;" & _
       "Password=xx"
%>
<%
Function DoubleUpSingleQuotes(strInput)
    DoubleUpSingleQuotes = Replace(strInput, "'", "''")
End Function
%>
 
<%
Select Case SaveType
  case "save"%>
 
<%
ireferredby = request.form("frmreferredby")
ifriendname1 = request.form("frmfriendname1")
ifriendemail1 = request.form("ffrmfriendemail1")
ifriendname2 = request.form("frmfriendname2")
ifriendemail2 = request.form("ffrmfriendemail2")
ifriendname3 = request.form("frmfriendname3")
ifriendemail3 = request.form("ffrmfriendemail3")
 
%>
 
 
<%
SQLQuery = "INSERT INTO CustomerRefer (referredby, friendname, friendemail)" 
SQLQuery = SQLQuery & " VALUES (" 
 
SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ireferredby) & "',"
SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ifriendname1) & "',"
SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ifriendemail1) & "'"
       
SQLQuery = SQLQuery & ")"
 
Set RS = OBJdbConn.Execute(SQLQuery)
 
OBJdbConn.Close
Set OBJdbConn = Nothing
 
 
response.Redirect("default.asp?mode=saved")
%>

The best way to achive repetative actions in a script is to write a routine or a function depending on whether or not you need a return value. This way you could call the rutine and pass arguments into the function instead of having to write simular code over and over again.

Sub enterSql (var1, var2, var3)

     referredby = var1
     friendname = var2
     friendemail = var3

     SQLQuery = "INSERT INTO CustomerRefer (referredby, friendname, friendemail)"
     SQLQuery = SQLQuery & " VALUES ("

     SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ireferredby) & "',"
     SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ifriendname1) & "',"
     SQLQuery = SQLQuery & "'" & DoubleUpSingleQuotes(ifriendemail1) & "'"
       
     SQLQuery = SQLQuery & ")"
 
     Set RS = OBJdbConn.Execute(SQLQuery)
End Sub

So now when you want it to run you would call and pass one right after the other:

enterSql (ireferredby,ifriendname1,ifriendemail1)
enterSql (ireferredby,ifriendname2,ifriendemail2)

Hope this helps some.

Sorry just noticed a mistake in the code

This:

referredby = var1
friendname = var2
friendemail = var3

Should be this:

ireferredby = var1
ifriendname1 = var2
ifriendemail1= var3
