I wish to insert a checkbox control into a form via sql INSERT INTO. I’m using MS Sql Server Management Studio 2008.

I know I need to use a sql statement something like below.

INSERT INTO [M1_TJ].[dbo].[FormDefinitions]
           (<xaoFormID, char(75),>
           ,<xaoControlName, char(70),>
           ,<xaoClassID, char(35),>
           ,<xaoType, numeric(1,0),>
           ,<xaoProperties, text,>
           ,<xaoCode, text,>)

I would like to insert the following values below into M1_TJ dataset

xaoControlName: CHKLINTPOT                                                            
xaoClassID: M1.M1CHECKBOX                      
xaoType: 2
xaoProperties: Top = 1640 Left = 877 Height = 44 Width = 96 DataSource = "M1DataControl" Caption = "Lint Pot"
xaoCode: Function CHKLINTPOT_Change() Call UpdateSummary()   End Function

*For xaoFormID above, I would like to insert all the other values into xaoFormID where xaoFormID like ‘%PART-FSIP%’

My concern is the xaoCode field. When I go into design studio to edit the code, there are line breaks which adhere to VBscript coding conventions.

To check if your solution is getting proper results, I would like to first fun a Select and check the data and if it is ok, run the update or insert statement.

Thanks heaps! J
