I also tried replacing the revExecuteSQL comman with revdb_execute. Both result in this error: {execution error at line n/a (External handler execution error: revdberr,syntax error) near "revdberr,syntax error"}

Here an example :

put fld "name" into tName

put the label of btn "title" into tTitle
put fld "first_name" into fFirst_Name

put fld "address" into tAddress

put fld "citycode" into tCitycode

put fld "tCity" into tCity

put fld "tPhone" into tPhone

put fld "tEmail" into tEmail

put "INSERT INTO address ( tAddress, tCitycode, tEmail, tName, fFirst_Name, tPhone, tTitle, tCity) VALUES ( :1, :2, :3, :4, :5, :6, :7, :8 );" into tSQL
revExecuteSQL tDatabaseID, tSQL, "tAddress", "tCitycode", "tEmail", "tName", "fFirst_Name", "tPhone", "tTitle", "tCity"

//The quote are necessary in last line
