This was fixed by an earlier question, but that only fixed a problem with SELECT statement.

My hosting company has migrated my site to a new server with MSSQL 2012. Since then the attached code does not work.

I get this error:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e4d'

Invalid authorization specification

/database/add_visit.asp, line 214

This is my connection string:
conn.ConnectionString = "provider=sqloledb;uid=#######;pwd=#######;connection timeout=620;database=###SQL;DataTypeCompatibility=80"

It only produces the error when I try to INSERT a record

chances are the user you're using in your connection string does have INSERT access to the table you're trying to write to

I agree with Big Monty.  In MS SQL, you can set permissions (or block them) on just about every individual function.  Sounds like maybe they have given you Read only access.
