    Question Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8' Object required: ''

    I setup up a test connection to input data from a form to a mysql database. However, I received the following error:

    Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'

    Object required: ''

    /datainputstatus.asp, line 20

    Form- http://www.middletownplanning.com/form2.html
    Processing ASP- http://www.middletownplanning.com/datainputstatus.asp

    (I've noted line 20 below with "<---- Line 20")

    <%@ Language=VBSCRIPT %>

    <title>ShotDev.Com Tutorial</title>

    Dim ConnectionString,strSQL,objExec
    ConnectionString="DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; SERVER=planning.readyhostingmysql.com; PORT=3306;" &_
    "DATABASE=contactinfo; USER=mwackers; PASSWORD=*password*; OPTION=3;"

    strSQL = ""
    strSQL = strSQL &"INSERT INTO forminput"
    strSQL = strSQL &"(1name,2email,3comment) "
    strSQL = strSQL &"VALUES "
    strSQL = strSQL &"('"&Request.Form("1name")&"','"&Request.Form("2email")&"', '"&Request.Form("3comment")
    Set objExec = Conn.Execute(strSQL) <------ Line 20
    If Err.Number = 0 Then
    Response.write("Save completed.")
    Response.write("Error Save ["&strSQL&"] ("&Err.Description&")")
    End If
    Set objExec = Nothing
    Set Conn = Nothing

    here is the form:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <title>Process the HTML form data with the POST method</title>
    <form method="POST" action="http://www.middletownplanning.com/datainputstatus.asp" name="form1">
    <table width="70%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <td colspan="2"><input type="text" name="1name" value="Michiel"></td>
    <td colspan="2"><input type="text" name="2email" value="email@email.net"></td>
    <td colspan="2"><textarea name="3comment" cols="40" rows="5">Hello World</textarea></td>
    <td colspan="2"><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"></td>

    the line Set objExec = Conn.Execute(strSQL) <------ Line 20
    if wrong you executing insert statement, it will not return recordset, so it should be
    Conn.Execute strSQL
    you should use set only if you expect object back from database

    The object, which is Conn, does not exist so there is no object to execute.

    It appears you may have copy/pasted parts of your code from different sources.

    Change line 20 from

    Set objExec = Conn.Execute(strSQL)


    Set objExec = ConnectionString.Execute(strSQL)

    since ConnectionString is a valid object.

    gk53 is also correct about fetching a recordset when one is not required. Just ConnectionString.Execute(strSQL) would suffice.
