The answer depends on the way you are currently working:
* using SQL statements
* using updatable recordsets
* using stored procedures

Please indicate, maybe including your code that doesn't work.

Cheers

sql = "INSERT INTO yourtable (col1, col2, datecol) VALUES ( 1,2, NULL )"

If you have SQL string you want to execute, you give NULL as value (no quotes, no brackets).

If you are using a recordset then set the value of the relevant field to vbNull
