Since I don't see a schema for the table, possibilities are...
There's a trigger on the table that threw a syntax error based on User (likely)
personal is a view and not a table, and either not updatable or requiring User to be populated.

As an aside, you're wasting processing time loading a SELECT * query into a recordset object if all you're doing is inserting a row.

Hi,
I guess that you have a column named User which is a reserved SQL word.
As you first run a Select * you will get the column names without square brackets which is normally the eay to escape reserved column names.
Please try to replace the SELECT * with
SELECT [Col1], [User],[Col3], ...
If you just need to add the record and just set one field value, this one column should be enough.

The problem is with sql statements,try another way for exp:
use full path of your table

like,
sql="Select * from dbo.personal"
or
sql="Select * from [user].[dbo].personal" as per your database
