Hello experts,

I am using ADO to save a recordset to an MS Access database. I cant save a any date older than 01/01/1753. I realize this is when the Gregorian calander kicked in.

My code looks like:
rsADO.addnew
rsADO(lcounter - 1) = CDate(strout)

The error when strout is older than 01/01/1753
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Datetime field overflow (null)

Help. I'm stuck.

Do you try to set the format of your date field in MS Access or regional setting (date tab) in control panel?

I am not sure can solve your problem or not..  but you can try.. good luck. ^_^

Sorry, ADO filed supports since December 30, 1899
In other hand, if you could define the field as adDBDate, it APPEARS to supports any date (A date value (yyyymmdd) (DBTYPE_DBDATE))
Hope it helps

Optionally, you could use dateserial function and save the date as double and do the conversion outside db. Just a guess.

How about save your data as string with fixed format?
for example dd/mm/yyyy format, 01/01/1753 save as 01011753 or 01/01/1753.

Then you know first two character represent day, last for characters represent year.

But if you do like this, you will have problem when comparing the date using SQL statement. ^_^

or may be you can use some SQL command to convert it to date when you need to compare date in sql statement.
