Hi Paul,

Now we get SQL0104 Token was not valid, the value looks right and is coming out 
in the right place on the error message.

Try getting rid of the single quotes around &NumField when you construct the
SQLINSERT statement. Enclosing the value in quotes indicates a character

Subject: Updating files from the web

Hello All,

we have a problem trying to update a file from the web using ASP, this is in
our ASP script

SQLINSERT="INSERT INTO mylib.myfile (NumField)"
SQLINSERT=SQLINSERT &"'" &NumField &"')"
set connupdate = server.createobject("ADODB.Connection")
connupdate.open "Provider=IBMDA400;Data Source=xxx.xxx.xxx.x;", "ABC", "ABC"

The field Numfield is defined on the iSeries as 7,0 and we have tried both
packed and zoned.

The error we get is the following.
SQL0408: Value for column or variable NumField not compatible. Cause . . . .
. : The data type of the source value is not compatible with the data type
of the target column or variable NumField

If we make the field alphanumeric then it works perfectly but we would
rather not change half a dozen programs to make them handle an alhpa field
instead of the numeric.

Anybody any ideas?
