ok i will put 2 posts of code from 2 different sheets.
I have a problem where the code i have written isn't writing the information onto the database.
(the database has read and write permission to everyone.)
<%
Dim adoCon          'Holds the Database Connection Object
Dim rsAddComments   'Holds the recordset for the new record to be added
Dim strSQL          'Holds the SQL query to query the database
 
Set adoCon = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
adoCon.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("******.mdb")
 
Set rsAddComments = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strSQL = "SELECT tblComments.Drawings_Number, tblComments.Drawing_Title FROM tblComments;"
 
rsAddComments.CursorType = 2
rsAddComments.LockType = 3
rsAddComments.Open strSQL, adoCon
 
rsAddComments.AddNew
 
rsAddComments.Fields("Drawings_Number") = Request.Form("Drawings_Number")
rsAddComments.Fields("Drawing_Title") = Request.Form("Drawing_Title")
 
rsAddComments.Update
rsAddComments.Close
Set rsAddComments = Nothing
Set adoCon = Nothing
Response.Redirect "dwgreg.asp"
%>

(a bit more information)
it doesn't come up with an error message, just enters blank data.

Any ideas?
TIA

If you use enctype="multipart/form-data" in the form (as you do), you can not use Request.Form, because there will be no values in it. That explains why you get blank data in your database.

multipart/formdata is meant to be used with fileupload. I see no fileupload in your form, so the solution would be do not use it.

<form action="add_to_register.asp" method="post" name="form">
