vbscript update multi value record

sgdought used Ask the Experts™
I'm trying to record the IP address of computers into an access database.  I need to record all IP address of a computer.  The problem is the lasdt IP address over writes the first one.  how does one put multiple entries in an access database with vbscript (similiar to press Ctrl+Alt and adding a second entry manually).
Option Explicit

you will probably want to use objRecordSetAddress.addnew to add a new record instead of editing the current record

or execute an "insert into" statement


Line 49 adds the new record using the add new function..  What I'm trying to do is add multiple IP addresses to the same cell, appending the second IP address  instead of overwriting the first address that was put into the database record.  As you can see from lines 68 to 71 I was trying to concatenate the 2 IP addreses, but what I really want is both IP addresses in the same cell.  Currently the second IP address (say the wireless address), overwrites the first address, the wired address.  
So basically I'm trying to update an access record field with multiple values, using vbscript.
Never did find a solution to adding multiple values to a field through vbscript.  So I rewrote the code to add a complete record for each IP address, instead of the more efficient method of using a multi value field.
