    Unanswered: delete error...

    hi guys....
    whats wrong with this code... every time i'll use this it deletes the whole content of the database, instead of deleting only the record i choose.

    Dim msgid
    msgid = Request.Form("msgid")

    Dim Conn
    Dim Rs
    Dim sql
    Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Set Rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("blog.mdb") & ";"
    sql= "Delete FROM messagetable WHERE 'msgid='"& msgid &""
    Rs.Open sql, Conn
    Set Conn = Nothing
    Response.redirect "adminshowmain.asp?sortby=msgid"

    Can anybody enlighten me with this problem??

    ************************************************** *********
    Date Subject Posted by
    (the date) (title of the message) (user who posted it)
    ************************************************** *********

    What I want to do now here are checkboxes beside the date, so when these checkboxes are checked, then the delete button is clicked, it would delete the multiple records checked. I don't know where to start....

    Can anybody enlighten me with this problem??


    I'll start you with something, you can finish the next process to delete the records from your database.
    This code will have option to check and uncheck the checkboxes all at once or just one as you prefer.

    Create a checkbox input type and call it MyCheckBox for example..

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
    function SetChecked(val) {
    len= dml.elements.length;
    var i=0;
    for( i=0 ; i<len ; i++) {
    if (dml.elements[i].name=='MyCheckBox') {
    <body >
    <form method="Post" name = "MessageForm"  action="GoDeletethem.asp">
    ' this will be above and/or bottom of your table or message listing. 
    <table><tr><td><a href="javascript:SetChecked(1)"><font face="Verdana" size="1" color="Blue">Check&nbsp;All</font></a>
    </td><td>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td><td><a href="javascript:SetChecked(0)"><font face="Verdana" size="1" color="Blue">UnCheck&nbsp;All</font></a>
    ' your code here to submit buttom
    Here' the sample at the bottom . This is a live pager so please don't send a broadcast message.

    from memory (and with a little trial and error you can test this) if you have multiple check boxes all with the same name/id and different values, when you call the Request object to get the value for the checkboxes (with the duplicate names/ids) you should get a comma delimited string of values.

    If these are the ids for the database records you want to delete you can then do something like....
    myIds = Request("chkDelete")
    sql= "delete from myTable1 where myTable.Id in ('" + myId's + "')"
    from memory anyways....
