Hey,

For some reason this code isnt working. Can you see any problems with it?
IP has been dotted out for obvious reasons :)

Thanks!
Set SQLCn = New ADODB.Connection
Set Cmd2 = New ADODB.Command

SQLCn.ConnectionString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};" & "SERVER=*.*.*.*;" & " DATABASE=jessee10;" & "UID=jessee10_User;PWD=Password;"
SQLCn.Open

With Cmd2
    .ActiveConnection = SQLCn
    .CommandType = adCmdText
    .CommandText = "DELETE * FROM tblSongs WHERE colSongTitle = ? AND colBackupName = ? AND colUserIndex = ?"
    .Prepared = True
    .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter(, adVarChar, adParamInput, 100, SongName)
    .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter(, adVarChar, adParamInput, 100, BackupName)
    .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter(, adVarChar, adParamInput, 10, UserIndex)
    .Execute
End With

MesI "Record has been deleted."

Im getting the error:

[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.91-community]You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '* FROM tblSongs WHERE colSongTitle = 'Miss Bipolar' AND colBackupName = 'Backup'' at line 1

Should be:

DELETE FROM tblSongs

instead of

DELETE * FROM tblSongs
