ok here is what i have,
cursor.execute("INSERT INTO History (autoinc, Site Name) VALUES  
(888812, 'Test');")

gives me this
''' _mysql_exceptions.ProgrammingError : (1064, "You have an error in  
your SQL syntax.  Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL  
server version for the right syntax to use near 'Name) VALUES (888812,  
'Test')' at line 1") '''

the autoinc field isn't really an auto-increment field, its an int.  
That is left over from the migration from Access.

there are other fields in the table but all can be null.

this line works fine though
cursor.execute("INSERT INTO History (autoinc) VALUES (888812);")

this line does not
cursor.execute("INSERT INTO History (Site Name) VALUES ('test');")

can you not have spaces in a field name ? is the quotes gone awry?

dont know what to do next.
please help !
