I have a program that search for various word (using Word 2003) and do a parameterized insert query to fill the database.  My problem is that I can search one word at a time and therefore insert to one field at a time.  I want to insert one field at a time but thought out the lengh of my procedure I want to insert to every filed of one record depend on my search criterias.

after you insert to the first field, you need to get the ID back.
then for each field after the first, use an UPDATE statement with the ID you got.

imitchie was right, you can't insert into the same record more than once.
You must query first from the database, if not exist then you can insert the record otherwise update it.
