SQL Server 2008 RS Syntax

I have an insert query that reqires a lot of variables.  My Problem is after I define the fields then all the values, the last value has to be a where so I insert into the correct record.  I am sure this is something that I have just been staring at for too long.  Here is paart of the code:

INSERT INTO MainInput () VALUES (@cty, @st,@gen,@whe,@did,@bad,@rec,@che,@alc,@par,@bar,@dru,@rom,@unR,@car,@hon,@rUs,@bat,@nim,@toy,@por,@sup,@lab,@fli,@crim,@jus,@nee,@nig,@jea,@ang,@pos,@sug,@chi,@opp,@cut,@pda,@com,@vin,@lia,@dam) where ID = (@lbl)"

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@dam", Data.SqlDbType.Int).Value = Me.cbDamagedGoods.Checked
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@lbl", Data.SqlDbType.Int).Value = Me.tbID.Text

How do I get the last part of that insert correct it is failing on the where clause,  I removed the fields as to not make this a 8 page psot.

Thanks in advance team!

If you want to use a 'where' clause with an insert you have to do it as follows:

insert into MyTable select x, y, z 

Open in new window

instead of

insert into MyTable values (x, y, z)

Open in new window
