I have 2 tables in a database. One called "View" and one called "Main". These aren't linked for various reasons, though they can be linked if it will solve me problem.
I am trying to insert values into both view and main. (These being part of a logging in and storing details system)
The code is as follows


set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Open "htdocs\ADO\database.mdb"
sql="INSERT INTO Main Values"
sql=sql & "('" & Request.Form("Username") & "',"
sql=sql & "'" & Request.Form("Password") & "',"
sql=sql & "'Basic',"
sql=sql & "'" & Request.Form("Firstname") & "',"
sql=sql & "'" & Request.Form("Lastname") & "',"
sql=sql & "'" & Request.Form("Country") & "',"
sql=sql & "'" & Request.Form("Email") & "')"
sql=sql & " AND "
sql=sql & "INSERT INTO View Values"
sql=sql & "('" & Request.Form("Username") & "',"
sql=sql & "'#c0d9e9',"
sql=sql & "'#e2f2fb',"
sql=sql & "'#a0d4f2',"
sql=sql & "'#e2f2fb',"
sql=sql & "'#a0d4f2',"
sql=sql & "'#ffffff')"
on error resume next
conn.Execute sql
if err<>0 then
for each Err in Conn.Errors
  response.write("Description: ")
  response.write(Err.Description & "<br />")
  response.write("Help context: ")
  response.write(Err.HelpContext & "<br />")
  response.write("Help file: ")
  response.write(Err.HelpFile & "<br />")
  response.write("Native error: ")
  response.write(Err.NativeError & "<br />")
  response.write("Error number: ")
  response.write(Err.Number & "<br />")
  response.write("Error source: ")
  response.write(Err.Source & "<br />")
  response.write("SQL state: ")
  response.write(Err.SQLState & "<br />")
   Response.Write("An error occured while trying to register you! Please contact the
site administrator for further support.")
   Response.Write("<h3>You have successfully been register</h3>")
   Repsonse.Write("An email has been sent to you to keep as a record of your user
details. Please keep this email private and in a safe place. Click HERE to login!")
end if

I have tried doing the 2 inserts seperately; executing one then compiling th eother into the variable then executing that one. but it still gives me the same error stating "Illegal Assignment". The database is not read only, have complete access to it and performing just the one insert (Main) works, but not with the second.

Any help appreciated

Print both SQL statements with Response.Write and post them here, and I should be able to help you.
