imagine i have a string variable called myString.
i want to insert the string's value into a table of my database.
i can insert fine when the string is explicit but when it is referenced there is a problem.
s.execute("INSERT INTO Table (name) VALUES ('zack')); is fine


s.execute("INSERT INTO Tracker (name) VALUES (myString)); is NOT fine

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 1.

s.execute("INSERT INTO Tracker (name) VALUES ('"+myString+"')");
