Hi I am very new to both ASP and SQL but I am having a problem which doesnt give off any signals as to what is actually wrong.
I am creating a simple webpage using an Access Database as the datasource along with a GridView and DetailsView in order to insert/delete/edit and show information from the database neatly on the page.
Unfortunately once setup, the form only adds information from 3 of the 5 fields into the database, leaving me with blanks in the first two columns, I have no idea why this is happening and I was hoping someone could help me;
This is my source code of the Commands the form is using.
<asp:AccessDataSource ID="AccessDataSource1" runat="server"
DeleteCommand="DELETE FROM [table] WHERE [No] = ? AND [Reg No] = ? AND [Forename] = ? AND [Surname] = ? AND [Course] = ? AND [Entry] = ?"
InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [table] ([Reg No], [Forename], [Surname], [Course], [Entry]) VALUES ([Reg No], [Forename], [Surname], [Course], [Entry])"
SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [table]"
UpdateCommand="UPDATE [table] SET [Reg No] = ?, [Forename] = ?, [Surname] = ?, [Course] = ?, [Entry] = ? WHERE [No] = ? AND [Reg No] = ? AND [Forename] = ? AND [Surname] = ? AND [Course] = ? AND [Entry] = ?"
I am at a loss currently and would appreciate some help[:)]

Im confused at to what is " the form only adds information from 3 of the 5 fields into the database " means.
Does this mean your SELECT works fine and you can display all 5 columns but the insert fails?

Apologies, the SELECT seems to work fine but the INSERT is what seems to be causing the problem, though there appears to be no fault with the statement;
That is what Web Developer has generated, I'm not coding this myself exactly as I'm learning as I go along so to speak.

alrighty, do me a favor and post your entire aspx and your code behind so I can peek at it.

Ok this is my source code from the aspx page, this is all Web Developer has created for me.

well, Access is not my forte, however, I don't believe you can call a column "no" because that is a reserved word. Perhaps you should rename your columns to something a bit more obfuscated so that you aren't using a reserved word.
