Editing fields in FM with ODBC

I've got a VB program that currently opens an ODBC connection to FileMaker and finds a particular record. The program then pulls the feild data out of the database and performs particular functions. I'd like to start using the same program to create new records and change field values. However, the feild values aren't changing when the program runs, even though I can see that the feilds are being accessed line by line. Has anyone else run across a similar issue. Here is the code I'm using to access FM:

Set cn = New ADODB.Connection

Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

Set cm = New ADODB.Command

cn.Open "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Data Source=FMTest;database=myDatabase.fp5

cn.CursorLocation = adUseServer

rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic

rs.LockType = adLockBatchOptimistic

rs.Open "Select * from myDatabase where myDatabaseValue = '" & strDCN & "'", cn

rs.fields(ContactEmail).value = "[email protected]"

I can get the value out of the field but can't set it using the same code. Ah the simple joys of ODBC and FileMaker... crazy.gif
