Date data from VB to Access

I retrieve the date from Access. The Access input mask for the date is 99/99/00;0. The date from Access is placed in a Msked Edit Box in VB.  It comes in correctly with no Mask set and the format set to d/M/yy.  When I change the date and send it back to Access I get a Data Conversion Error because it sends the date back as say, 9698 (June 6, 1998).  I was wondering how to send it back so that it will save it correctly.  Also, if I put a mask such as ##/##/## in so that the user has to enter 6 numbers for the date then the date does not necessarily come back from Access correctly after it is saved from VB. (ex: Access: 1/12/98-> VB: 11/28/9) How would I correct this also?

First, check if the field in Access you are writing to is set up as a date field not a text field.
Second you could try '.FormattedText' property of the Masked Edit Box.
You should also make sure the the 'Include Literals' is checked in the properties.
