Hello!

My name is Juan P. Valdez.  I am trying to insert a record from an access database to an oracle database that includes a datetime field.  The insert sentence is the following:

vfecha = Format(rs!Time, "dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss")

        cn1.Execute ("insert into rh_ponchadas_empleados(cod_compania,secuencia,cod_empleado,fecha) values('" & rs2!no_cia & "' ," & rs!id & ", '" & vempleado & "','" & datevalue(vfecha) & "')")


The error that the database raise up is: ora-01843 "Not a valid month"

What ' wrong?

Thanks for your help...

Hello,


When inserting a date field, use the TO_DATE function.  Instead of simply
inserting '8/2/2002', insert TO_DATE('8/2/2002','MM/DD/YYY').

To_Date Syntax:

To_date( ' & vfecha & "',  'DD-MM-YYYY HH:MI:SS' )
