Hey, I copy and pasted your code over and created the database with microsoft access, and I keep getting this error:

HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
Internet Information Services

Technical Information (for support personnel)

* Error Type:
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E10)
No value given for one or more required parameters.
/news/verify.asp, line 37

I'm not sure why either...

thanks for your help,
