Problems with sending printables

Hi everyone!

I have tried to send a printable several times during this past week, but every time I click on SEND after completing the form about the printable, this is shown on screen:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error ´80040e14´

[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.27-community-nt-log]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 ´s DaySaint Patrick´s Day´,´ST. Patrick´s Day´,´There are two activities included´ at line 1

/send_printables/sendformnew.asp, line 606

What´s wrong? Please, help!
Thank you,
Petra Kl.

Hi Petra!
If your worksheet is more than 300 K we will not be able to upload it... Check it please !
Try to make your worksheet less"heavy". Read about ....
Best wishes

Hello Petra...
This last week i was also having problems sending my printables, but today I´ve succeded. Clap I believe that sometimes this happens. Probably it has nothing to do with the size of the printable. It was only bad luck. Do what I did and try again. If not, follow Victoria´s advice. But if i´m not mistaken the same error that appears to you also appeared to me and now everything is fine.

Hi  Petra,
I am not much of a PC geek but I think the problem is in the name of your file. According to the message you copied in your comment, you use apostrophes and dots in the title. Remove them, e.g. st patricks day, and hopefully you will be able to upload your printable.
I hope it can help.
