I want to insert a record for a user but update a field on all other record with that exact email address.
I am adding a column in the DB for duplicate.
SQL = "INSERT INTO homeFormUsers (firstName,lastName,emailAdd,interestedIn,datesubmitted)"
SQL = SQL & "VALUES ('" & strFname & "','" & strLname & "','" & strEmailAdd & "','" & strIntersted & "','" & strCurrDateTime & "') "

What field is that? you can try:

...

SQL = "Update homeFormUsers Set yourField =yourValue Where emailAdd = '" & strEmailAdd & "' "

conn.execute SQL

SQL = "INSERT INTO homeFormUsers (firstName,lastName,emailAdd,interestedIn,datesubmitted)"
SQL = SQL & "VALUES ('" & strFname & "','" & strLname & "','" & strEmailAdd & "','" & strIntersted & "','" & strCurrDateTime & "') "

conn.execute SQL

....


get the idea?
