HTTP 500 error

I have an asp page that I am connecting to an excel spreadsheet to try to allow folks to update some cells withihin this sheet without having to let them open the actual excel sheet. Everytime I try to navigate to the page it gives me the http: 500 error. I have pasted the asp code below.
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<!--#include file="../includes/"-->
<!--#include file="../script/"-->
<!--#include file="Tools/"-->

		Session("Year") = Request("Year")

		'Response.Write "servername = " & servername
	UID = Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")
	Uname = ucase(right(UID,7))	

	vXlsFile = "\virtual\documents\energysysvc\EHS List.xls"

		vXlsFile = Server.Mappath(vXlsFile)

assuming you're using IE, try going to Tools-->Advanced and uncheck Show Friendly HTTP error messages. This should give you a more specific error message.

ahh It saying:

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

/energysysvc/4key/4KeyrecEdit1.asp, line 47

but i know the record exists becasue how i get to this page is by actually clicking on the record ID from another page that is displaying the list of records and i choose the one I want to update.
Big MontySenior Web Developer / CEO of Commented:
can you post the table definition for tbl4Key? also, can you response.write the sql after you build it and make sure its what you expect it to be, with the correct id and all?
jlcannonAuthor Commented:
excellent, once I did this and actually got the error I was able to troubleshoot it and see a typo. I knew this code worked as I have another page, connecting to access, using the same code.
