    Exclamation Items Not Adding to Database VS2010

    I am trying to add items to my database. I can not seem to figure this out.
    The code I have executes without errors, but the items just fail to appear in
    the database. Please help! (and thanks in advance) The following is the only
    code I have in my form. I have tried the SQL command with and without the ;

       Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim Connection As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
            Connection.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=Database2.accdb;"
            Dim newrecord As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand 'declare the sql command
            newrecord.CommandText = "INSERT INTO Users ([Email], [PWD], [FirstName], [LastName]) VALUES ('Reid', 'aa', 'bb', 'cc')" 'put together the command string
            newrecord.Connection = Connection 'provide the newrecord with the connection info
            Connection.Open() 'open the connection to to the database
            newrecord.ExecuteNonQuery() 'execdute the command
        End Sub
    My form looks like this.

    Thank you for all your help!!!,

    Re: Items Not Adding to Database VS2010

    Find someone that has Access, and can also connect to your db (if you don't)
    Paste the query into SQL EDITOR and hit EXECUTE.
    INSERT INTO Users ([email], [PWD], [FirstName], [LastName]) VALUES ('Reid', 'aa', 'bb', 'cc')"
    Access is a lot less forgiving, and points to the offending character;.

    Also, check your DATATYPES.

    Re: Items Not Adding to Database VS2010

    Beacuse you are "new" to database programming, why not consider using parameterized queries. They are very much easier to manipulate, and instead of having ten INSERT INTO statements, you could have only one.

    Just trying to help you "grow" that is all...
