I have a simple submission page where a user can enter up to 10 new logins for access to a secure website. Sometimes they may enter and submit only three login names, other times they may enter the maximum of ten login names.

I want to be able to enter up to ten logins during one submission without inserting any blanks if a user decides to enter below ten logins.

I have attached my submission page and redirect page for review and update. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The SQL syntax:
INSERT INTO tablename (fieldname1) VALUES (...)
can only be used to insert one record at a time.
The number of field names in parentheses  before the VALUES must match the number of values in parentheses after VALUES. You need to insert up to ten records which have only one field.

replace line 5 & 6 of your thank you page with:
Dim i
For i = 1 to 10
    if request.Forms("user" & i) <> "" Then
        strSQLI = "insert into username (login) values ('" & request.Form("user" & i) & "');"
        conn.execute(strSQLI)
    end if
Next

Thanks pT72.  I got an error on line 7 - if request.Forms("user" & i) <> "" Then

I changed it to request.form and it works like a champ.

Thank you.
