    You're going to have to tweak the code a bit for your purposes but you're SQL will look a little like this:

    * I've only covered inserting the date so you'll have to fill in the rest of the fields as required. I'm also not sure if you're using GET or POST so I've used the ambiguous Request() method to grab the variables... You can change it to Request.Form() or Request.QueryString() if it suits your needs.

    check-in-date = Request("inmonth") & " " & Request("indate") & ", " & Request("inyear")
    strQuery = "INSERT INTO Your-Database-Table(check-in-date) VALUES ('"&posting&"')"
