What in the world is wrong with this simple line of code?

 dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO tempBankStatement (category, amount, date) VALUES ('Beginning Balance', " & myBegBal & ", #" & StartDate & "#);"

it keeps running "Error 3134 syntax error in INSERT INTO STATEMENT"

i've been fooling around with this for an hour!  it runs the error even if i insert a test date.

(eg.
dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO tempBankStatement (category, amount, date) VALUES ('Beginning Balance', " & myBegBal & ", #7/1/2000#);"

i've changed the format of the date, used chr(35) etc.

the statement works fine if i remove the date information.

help!

Try replacing the # with a single quote '. ('7/1/2000')

have you tried renaming your "date" column to something other than the keyword date?

ie)
INSERT INTO tempBankStatement (category, amount, myDate <--)

If your DB is an Access DB then using the # is correct.  However I agree with bobbit that you need to take a look at your column 'date'.  If you want to keep it date then in your sql statment you need to wrap it with brackets.

(eg.
dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO tempBankStatement (category, amount, [date]) VALUES ('Beginning Balance', " &
myBegBal & ", #7/1/2000#);"
