Just treat it as string.
For example, there is a table

Create table TabTest
(
  MyDate  DATETIME
)

SQL statement for query for the datetime field,

  select * from TabTest
  where DATETIME = '1998/06/08 14:46:22'

eg, In you code(assume DAO)

  ' db is the database object
  Dim rst As RecordSet
  Dim sSQL As String

  sSQL = "Select * from TabTest where MyDate = '" + _
         Format(Now, "yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss") + "'"
  Set rst = db.OpenRecordset(sSQL, dbOpenSnapshot, dbReadOnly)

Informix datetime format also are in the format of '1998-06-08 14:46:22'. So one must make sure in which format they are before making the date time.
