Looks like you're using back ticks ` instead of single quotes '

If these are reserved words being used as column names surround with [ ].

The items I bolded.  You can't have a string constant in the columns list/

string sSQL = " INSERT INTO capitapayment(fundcode,fundname,ref,amt,source,rurl,backurl,vatcode,custemail,reconscript,sysref,`when`,`live`) VALUES ('31','Car Penalty Charge Notice','" + pcn.ToString() + "','" + amt + " ','I ',' www.ad.gov.uk ',' " + backurl + "',' F ','','','" + pcn.ToString() + "|" + vrm.ToString() + "',NOW(), 1)";

I hope that connection string isn't for a live db with the user name and password in it.
