[Tutor] problem with simple sqlite script

I am getting frustrated.

I have been successfully inserting, deleting, etc records with python
and sqlite no problem.

Suddenly the following very simple scrip does not work:

import sqlite3


cur.execute("insert into test (name) values (?)",sPath)

here is an error message

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\framework\scriptutils.py",
line 307, in RunScript
    debugger.run(codeObject, __main__.__dict__, start_stepping=0)
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\debugger\__init__.py",
line 60, in run
    _GetCurrentDebugger().run(cmd, globals,locals, start_stepping)
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\debugger\debugger.py",
line 631, in run
    exec cmd in globals, locals
  File "E:\PythonExamples\test.py", line 7, in <module>
    cur.execute("insert into test (name) values (?)",sPath)
ProgrammingError: Incorrect number of bindings supplied. The current
statement uses 1, and there are 28 supplied.

What the hell is going on? I have used the syntax with (?) successfully before!

I tested and found out that above script allows me to insert only
single character into database. Then it works.

Using ActiveState python 2.5, WinXP

Thanks for any hint.
