'ODBC call failed ' is only the first part of ther error ,what does full text says?
Also, run SQL Trace when executing this query,and see what is actualy being sent to the server (and post here).

Do this..

ls_SQL = "SELECT * FROM TimeTable WHERE " _
        & " TimeTable.Time1 < " _
        & "'" & format(enteredTime,"HH:MM:SS") & "'"

'or whatever format your Time1 field is..

The proposed answer will not work. In SQL Server date and time are stored in the same field.
