I am using a get method in python to retrieve the contents of entry widgets on a GUI I created, once a user presses a button, to tell the program that they have entered data into the entry widgets. I then append this data to a list and insert it as a record into an sql database created in python. However when I run my code I keep receiving the error shown below.

In the code below the str entry widgets that I use the get method to retrieve data from, have been created earlier in the code.
# declares and defines function that checks that data in the 'Password' and ' Confirm Password' entries match
def MatchingPasswordsValidator(): if str(PasswordEntry.get())!= str(ConfirmPasswordEntry.get()): tkinter.messagebox.showerror("","Please ensure the passwords you enter match") else: # declares list variable UserDetails = []

    # populates list variable

    # inserts user's details into the program's database
    c.executemany("INSERT INTO tblUserDetails VALUES(?,?,?,?)",UserDetails)
    # saves changes made to database
File "C:\Users\User\Documents\School\CS\Project\", line 135, in MatchingPasswordsValidator c.executemany("INSERT INTO tblUserDetails VALUES(?,?,?,?)",UserDetails) sqlite3.ProgrammingError: Incorrect number of bindings supplied. The current statement uses 4, and there are 1 supplied.

What I have tried:

I have tried the following ways to solve the problem:

turning the list into a tuple

using a list literal

inserting data as variables into the database rather than as a list
getting the data from entry widgets inserting it into python variables, then I inserted the python variables into a list variable and then tried to insert this list variable into the sql database I created

You need to provide the names of the variables individually, not as a list. From the message this looks like an sqlite3 restriction.

Looks like you're storing passwords in plain text. Don't do that!
