I'm trying to add a new record to the db but nohting gets inserted.  I can populate the datagrid and make a change to an existing record but can't add a new record into the table.  I got this file up on flexcf.com.  Any ideas experts?
mxml:

				makeNew();
				
			}

				officePhoneFld.text = "";

I'm just using a mdb file.  yes, the id field is Autonumber and is a PK.

There is no error.  The fields just become blank.

This is the function on the New button..

private function makeNew():void{
firstNameFld.text = "";
lastNameFld.text = "";
officePhoneFld.text = "";
isNew = true;
}

So isnew is being set to true so shouldn't it call the save() method?..

private function save():void{
if(isNew){
ro.saveNewData(firstNameFld.text,lastNameFld.text,officePhoneFld.text);
}else{
ro.saveOldData(firstNameFld.text,lastNameFld.text,officePhoneFld.text,dg.selectedItem.id);
}
}

actually, i figured it out.  The New button cleared the fields and the Save button, saved the record.

Would you know how I could open a new window to insert new records into the datagrid?  So instead of those buttons on the root, the buttons and the fields would be in a seperate window.
