Hi Guys,

This is a basic error that I cannot see the wood for the trees.

Can anyone help:

Doutdatetimef = Request("Doutdatetime")&" "&Request("Doutdatetimeh")&":"&Request("Doutdatetimem")
HelAtimedatef = Request("HelAtimedate")&" "&Request("HelAtimedateh")&":"&Request("HelAtimedatem")
HelDtimedatef = Request("HelDtimedate")&" "&Request("HelDtimedateh")&":"&Request("HelDtimedatem")
RATimedatef = Request("RATimedate")&" "&Request("RATimedateh")&":"&Request("RATimedatem")

strSQL = strSQL + " Insert [tblJob-Cal-flight-book] (Job_ID, DFlight_No, Depart, DTimedate, Arive, ATimedate, RDepart, RTimedate, RArive, RATimedate, RFlight_No, Eng_ID, Type, Conformation_No, Airline) VALUES ('"&JobIDa&"', '"&Request("DFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Depart")&"',  CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&Doutdatetimef&"',103), '"&Request("Arrival")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&Doutdatetimef&"',103), '"&Request("RDepart")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&HelDtimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RArive")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&RATimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Eng_ID")&"', 'Flight', '"&Request("conformation_no")&"', '"&Request("airline")&"' )"

Open in new window



Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

Expected end of statement

/Job_MGT_SYS/inc/Book_Job_flight.asp, line 38
strSQL = strSQL + " Insert [tblJob-Cal-flight-book] (Job_ID, DFlight_No, Depart, DTimedate, Arive, ATimedate, RDepart, RTimedate, RArive, RATimedate, RFlight_No, Eng_ID, Type, Conformation_No, Airline) VALUES ('"&JobIDa&"', '"&Request("DFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Depart")&"',  CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&HelAtimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("Arrival")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&Doutdatetimef&"',103), '"&Request("RDepart")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&HelDtimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RArive")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&RATimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Eng_ID")&"', 'Flight', '"&Request("conformation_no")&"', '"&Request("airline")&"' )"

strSQL = strSQL + " Insert [tblJob-Cal-flight-book] (Job_ID, DFlight_No, Depart, DTimedate, Arive, ATimedate, RDepart, RTimedate, RArive, RATimedate, RFlight_No, Eng_ID, Type, Conformation_No, Airline) VALUES ('"&JobIDa&"', '"&Request("DFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Depart")&"',  CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&

No the strSQL = strSQL + is right as thats adding strSQL + strSQL

and the line ending in the & is so show where the message is indicating the error. Please see the first code snip.
Doutdatetimef = Request("Doutdatetime")&" "&Request("Doutdatetimeh")&":"&Request("Doutdatetimem")
HelAtimedatef = Request("HelAtimedate")&" "&Request("HelAtimedateh")&":"&Request("HelAtimedatem")
HelDtimedatef = Request("HelDtimedate")&" "&Request("HelDtimedateh")&":"&Request("HelDtimedatem")
RATimedatef = Request("RATimedate")&" "&Request("RATimedateh")&":"&Request("RATimedatem")

strSQL = strSQL + " Insert [tblJob-Cal-flight-book] (Job_ID, DFlight_No, Depart, DTimedate, Arive, ATimedate, RDepart, RTimedate, RArive, RATimedate, RFlight_No, Eng_ID, Type, Conformation_No, Airline) VALUES ('"&JobIDa&"', '"&Request("DFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Depart")&"',  CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&Doutdatetimef&"',103), '"&Request("Arrival")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&Doutdatetimef&"',103), '"&Request("RDepart")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&HelDtimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RArive")&"', CONVERT(DATETIME,'"&RATimedatef&"',103), '"&Request("RFlight_No")&"', '"&Request("Eng_ID")&"', 'Flight', '"&Request("conformation_no")&"', '"&Request("airline")&"' )"

no it should be &, it may be working in your query but if your vars were numbers it would add them up

Well its years since I have used classic ASP, but what I remember is that '&' is for string concatenation. The same way you are using it in the rest of the string
+ is for mathematical addition

Plus its not good practice to remove all spaces.
"&HelAtimedatef&"',103)

Should be
" & HelAtimedatef & "',103)
