Hi See code below.  

I have added a new field "AuditCategory" onto my tblAuditlog.
My VBA insert to this table previously worked but now I want to add this new field to the insert statement..

How Do I add the variable "strAuditCategory" into my insert statement - (it should be written to the field name AuditCategory obviously).  

I have tried a few combinations but have got confused by the quotes, commas etc.  (This confusion is a speciality of mine!)
BEFORE:
CurrentDb.Execute "insert into [tblAuditlog] (Auditstr,auditDate) values ( '" & AuditDetails & "',#" & Now() & " #)"

Open in new window

Try this:
BEFORE: 
CurrentDb.Execute "insert into [tblAuditlog] (Auditstr,auditDate,AuditCategory) values ( '" & AuditDetails & "',#" & Now() & " #,'" & strAuditCategory & "')"

I've struggled with the quotes thing on sql fields in the past.  The easiest thing that I have is to use the chr statement

values (chr(34) & auditdetails & chr(34) ....

if you are just taking notes, you should know this by now as this was posted sometime ago in one of your questions..

for number data type you use  " & myNumbervariable  & "
for text                                '" & mytextVariable  & "'
                 (exploded view )   ' " & myTextvariable & " '

" & chr(34) & varName & chr(34) & "

Thanks all,

Incidentally, capricorn1, I did actually refer to the query of a few weeks ago.

However, I misinterpreted the solution posted by Mcoz and thought that there was additional #'s due to the additional string.

On second reading the # is not relevant to my query.

Thanks again,
