Hi guys.
I have a new problem. I'm still working on developing a webdatabase. I develop codes in Dreamweaver CS3 and the database is Access placed on a webhotel.
The problem is on an updateform. I made a lot of similar update-forms and they all work perfect... beside this one. When I click the button to update, I get this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in UPDATE statement.
/crt_survey/crt_survey_edit_note.asp, line 37

Line 37 is the second last line in the code below (MM_editCmd.Execute) I have no idea what is wrong. I used these codes on around 20 other update-pages with no errors. On top of this, this form is the most simple one. Only 1 single field to update! (field = "note" from table="tbl_note").
This issue is driving me nuts! Can you please help me? :o)
Friendly regards

A couple of ideas.

a) Single quotes around the note column
MM_editCmd.CommandText = "UPDATE tbl_note SET note = '?' WHERE note_id = ?"

b) I would test the values in the forms and check for anomalies such as single quotes etc
Response.write("|" & Request.Form("note") & "|")
Response.write("<br/>|" & Request.Form("MM_recordId") & "|")

Hi Mildurait.

Ad a) I tried single quotes, but that generated this error:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e21'
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.
/crt_survey/crt_survey_edit_note.asp, line 39

Ad b) The tests were correct. "MM_recordId" were 15 (correct) and "note" did show, what I wrote in the form... but somehow it won't write the stuff to the database.

Any other suggestions?

Hi. As I wrote I'm using Microsoft Access, and everything else is working fine... just this single, stupid form won't update. :-(  All other forms are updating perfectly.

Have you tried simplifying the command text, even response.writing sql below, copying and running within access?

Dim sql as string
sql = "UPDATE tbl_note SET note = '" & Request.Form("note")  & "' WHERE note_id = " & Request.Form("MM_recordId")

Has this form ever worked?
Is note of string (text/memo) type (not numeric) etc?

Hi again. No... it didn't work, so I made another solution that works. I guess this is just "one of those things" that happens. :o) Thanks for your suggestions!
