Thanks for your response and taking the time to look at the code. objConn is dimmed and set in the SSI, Clssfd.asp, which handles all the connectivity stuff. I've attached it hereto.
To be honest, I don't know why the file uses Commands. I am still learning ASP. This app is from a tutorial in Beginning ASP 3.0 (Wrox), chapter 15, "Wrox Classifieds". I looked on the Wrox site's discussion board, and there were a couple of other people with the same issue overt he past year, but I've tried the solutions they came up with and they didn't work on this computer. So, I'm suspecting i has something to do with settings on this computer, possibly with MS-Access.
If you think it is unnecessary to use Command Objs, maybe I'll try try it without them. Can you tell me the basics of how I go about doing that?
Thanks for your time earlier. I FINALLY figured out the problem: the line before the "obj.CommandText = ..." line had an extra, unnecessary "& _" on the end, effectively rendering the objCommand line as part of the Response.Write of the line above it. How frustrating this problem was!
ALSO, you replied to my other post of Friday afternoon. I won't be on that system again until tomorrow (Monday), so I will be getting back to THAT problem then. Thanks again for your help!
