I am getting this error when running this update query. Can someone help me to figure out why?

ERROR: The multi-part identifier could not be bound.

Session("FileName") = File.FileName
                              
'test = (Session("FileName"))   NOT WORK
'test = "FileName.txt"   NOT WORK
test = 3   WORKS


Thanks

 Table
Session("FileName") = File.FileName
					
					'test = (Session("FileName"))
					'test = "FileName.txt"
					test = 3
					
					sSQL = "update RegWorkDetail set IsItemComplete = 1, UpFName = " & test & " where SGID = " & Session("strSGID") & " and RWID = " & Request.QueryString("RWID")
					oConn.Execute(sSQL)

sSQL = "update RegWorkDetail set IsItemComplete = 1, UpFName = " & test & " where SGID = " & Session("strSGID") & " and RWID = " & Request.QueryString("RWID")
-->
sSQL = "update RegWorkDetail set IsItemComplete = 1, UpFName = '" & test & "' where SGID = '" & Session("strSGID") & "' and RWID = '" & Request.QueryString("RWID") & "'"

assuming Request.QueryString("RWID") & Session("strSGID") are also strings...

Also, something to keep in mind is that if the string contains a ' it'll cause issues. So in general, you'll want to replace any ' with '' prior to concatenating the string.
