I am trying to run this statement to insert a record into SQL Server but I am getting an error: Record Update Error on #. Does anyone know how to correct this SQL statement and get rid of the error?

SQL = "INSERT INTO [Chart Location] (MRN, FName, LName, DOB, Area, AttPhy, Visit, [Date], UserID, [Timestamp]) values('" + sMRN + "', '" + sFirst + "', '" + sLast + "', #" + sBirthDate + "#, '" + sArea + "', '" + sAttPhy + "', '" + sVisit + "', #" + sDate + "#, 'HL7 Sock', #" & Now() & "#)"

The # signs are an MS Access'ism.  You should not need them when making a call directly to SQL server.  Try putting the dates inside single ticks like your other values.  SQL server will convert the strings to datetime values before it does the insert.

Give it a try this way

SQL = "INSERT INTO [Chart Location] (MRN, FName, LName, DOB, Area, AttPhy, Visit, [Date], UserID, [Timestamp]) values('" + sMRN + "', '" + sFirst + "', '" + sLast + "', '" + sBirthDate + "', '" + sArea + "', '" + sAttPhy + "', '" + sVisit + "', '" + sDate + "', 'HL7 Sock', '" & Now() & "')"

You also may have better luck with the date columns if you use a yyyy-mm-dd format, as in:
Format$(Now(), "YYYY-MM-DD")

It also could give this error when you trying to insert not acceptable value.For example with wrong datatype or null for requered column.
