Please post your code.  Thanks.

Make sure the field is a date field in the SQL server.  Also, make sure the VBScript function that you are using is aware of the format the date is in before calling it... For a more specific answer, please post your code..

Hi Massey, format function i used is the built in function of Jet SQL.When i restart the system it works for some time. Then again returns undefined function "Format". I think this comes from ODBC Driver for Access.
Can you post your code so we can see that part that is being troublesome?
