    First, don't use special characters like space, dash, etc. in field names (G PF) and if you do, enclose them in brackets [].
    Second - see how your sSQL string looks like in immediate window (Ctrl+G and type "? sSQL" without quotes and press Enter). If you won't spot error in string there please copy it and paste here. It's hard to analyse it without knowing values in all of your textX, listX etc. controls.

    Ok, I shouldn't do all the work for you, but I got too much time on my hands today, so...
    Your sSQL string will look like:
    Code:
    " INSERT INTO empd (PAN,PEN,ENAME,DESIG,ADDR,ONAME,PLACE,DOB,DOJ,BP,G PF,SLI,GIS,LIC,FBS,SOP) 
    VALUES ( 12345 , ABCDE1254W , 'CHARLIE' , 'COMPUTER HARDWARE' , 'INDIA' , 'XYZ OFFICE' , 'INDIA' , #12/12/1999# , #12/12/1999# , 17420 ,
     80 , 50 , 42 , 12 , 0 , '1234-2134'); "
    1. Your [G PF] field contains space in its name
    2. You're updating [PEN] field with string ABCDE1254W without quotes around it
    3. If you seek advice on forums it's in good tone to try, what was suggested maybe?

    thank you cyanidem. actually the field name GPF doesnt have a space in between. yes i was using pan value as numeric instead of alphanumeric. it was a mistake. i corrected the mistakes. still i am getting the same error message. ok i will try. thanks for your help.

    Can you copy/paste value of your sSQL string after your code breaks on syntax error? Use Immediate Window as suggested in post #2.
