I am using vba in an attempt to append a row in a table.

'Build the -Insert SQL Statement
strInsertSQL = "INSERT INTO tblFeature(Cat_No, Fea_ID, Fea_Name,Fea_Descr,Fea_Syntax,Fea_URL) " & _
"VALUES(intCatNo, strFeaID, strFeaName,strFeaDescr,strFeaSyntax,strFeaURL)"
 
'Execute the sql statement
CurrentDb.Execute strInsertSQL

Worked when values were hard coded.

Watch window shows values for all variables.

What am I missing?

Thanks,

try this
strInsertSQL = "INSERT INTO tblFeature(Cat_No, Fea_ID, Fea_Name,Fea_Descr,Fea_Syntax,Fea_URL) " & _
"VALUES(" & intCatNo & ", '" & strFeaID & "', '" & strFeaName & "', '" & strFeaDescr & "', '" & strFeaSyntax & "', '" & strFeaURL  & "')"

To add just a bit, you were passing the variable names as literal's in the statement, not the value those variables contain.

The way your statement was, the letters 'intCatNo' was actually being used for the value.   You can see that clearly by putting a STOP just above the execute, then looking at the SQL Statement.

Contrast that to what Anthony suggested and you'll see the difference.

Jim.
