Hi All, I have copied some working code from 1 page to another, but I cant seem to get it to work

Set PreRegister=oConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM events,locations,codes WHERE event_location=location_ID AND event_code=code_short AND event_code<>'TEST' AND event_code<>'SPEC' AND code_live=TRUE AND event_live=TRUE AND event_start>Now() AND event_prereg=TRUE")
<input type=text name=email"&PreRegister("event_ID")&" value='' size=26 placeholder='Email Address' class=inputbox>
<input type=hidden name=event"&PreRegister("event_ID")&" id=eventID"&PreRegister("event_ID")&" value=''>
<input type=submit name='register' value='Register!' onclick='document.getElementById('eventID"&PreRegister("event_ID")&"').value='"&PreRegister("event_ID")&"'' class=inputsubmit>

If Request.Form("register")="Register!" Then
	Set EventIDs=oConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM events")
	Do Until EventIDs.EOF
	email=Request("email" & eventID)
	If eID<>"" and isNumeric(eID) Then
'	check if email address exists

		If Not checkemailexist.EOF Then
			Response.Write("Your email address has already registered for this event")
' send email to client saying thank you for signing up for the news letter and opportunity to complete user account.
			oConnAE.Execute("INSERT INTO pax(pax_fname) VALUES('GP Fan')")
			Set NewPax=oConnAE.Execute("SELECT @@IDENTITY AS New_Pax_ID")
