it did not work...I just needed that info to help debug.Is your database set to allow null entries in lastname, firstname, etc..fields that are currently null???Another possible problem is age...if you are trying to insert NULL into a number field...BTW what DB are you using? Access?

Unless you set it as a required field and it is not a Primary or Foreign key it already accepts null.What is the Primary Key of the table? Are any of the fields required fields (if you did not set them as required they are not)?Is the age field a number or text (string)????
