Problems using running stored procedures via VBA

Hi There,

I have a little vba script that checks for certain emails and then updates a SQL database via a stored procedure. The stored procedure works fine from query analyser but if I run it from VBA it miss's out a single field in the middle. I have run through the script step by step and it does have the field filled out at the execute stage. Here is the section that does the business:

    Dim Conn1 As ADODB.Connection
    Dim sConnect As String

    sConnect = "PROVIDER=MSDASQL;DSN=SQL2000;UID=username;PWD=password;"
   
    Set Conn1 = New ADODB.Connection
    Conn1.ConnectionString = sConnect
    Conn1.Open

        SQLString = "update_and_close @Callref = '" & _
            CallRef & "', @LTXRef = '" & LTXRef & "', @Arrival = '" _
            & fsrArrival & "', @Complete = '" _
            & fsrComplete & "', @Status = " & fsrStatus & _
            ", @Repair = " & fsrRepair & ", @FSRSolution = '" & RTrim(FSRSolution) & "'" _
            & ", @Dtime = " & compDtime

    Dim Cmd1 As ADODB.Command
    Set Cmd1 = New ADODB.Command
    Conn1.Execute SQLString

The field that is not going through is the @complete, however @arrival does which is setup the same as far as I can see. The definition of the variables is next;

Dim FSRSolution, CallRef, LTXRef, SQLString, fsrStatus As String
Dim strCallCoverCode, fsrArrival, fsrComplete As String
Dim fsrRepair As Integer
Dim compDtime As Double

CREATE PROCEDURE Update_And_Close
   @CallRef integer,
   @LTXRef integer,
   @Arrival varchar(20),
   @Complete varchar(20),
   @Status varchar(4),
   @Repair integer,
   @FSRSolution varchar(255),
   @Dtime float
AS

The arrival and complete fields were dates but I kept having problems converting them across so that may be part of the problem. Any help appreciated. Points at 500 as this is both urgent and extremely frustrating to me.
