Use IsDate function before you submit to the db.

If isDate(mydate) then
' submit code
end if

As always, code is better to suggest you something

User to_date(date_var,'DD-MON-YYYY') to make sure you are sending a right format.
Use it in your sql str.Replace date with your date variable.

i agree with prokni

first test hardcoding the value.

date_var = '1-may-2000'

strQry = "insert into table1(date_of_joining) values (to_date('" & date_var & "','DD-MON-YYYY')"

Objcn.Execute strQry

**date_var is a string variable**

Actually safer to use a date format string of 'DD-MON-RRRR' which is y2k complient.
