Im new to SQL/c#.  Here is what I'm trying to do.

strSQL = "INSERT t_customers VALUES (" +
                              PrepareStr(txt_first_name.Text) + "," +
                              PrepareStr(txt_last_name.Text) + "," +
                              PrepareStr(txt_user_name.Text) + "," +
                              PrepareStr(txt_password.Text) + "," +
                              PrepareStr(txt_address.Text) + "," +
                                                         
Next I want to include  getDate, so I can get the date from the SQL server and insert it into the next field in the table, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this.

Thanks in advance,
Sean

OR if you have more columns, put "," at the end
PrepareStr(txt_address.Text) + ", GETDATE() ," +

An advice, use String.Format to make code more readable and easy to update

strSQL = String.Format("INSERT t_customers VALUES ({0}, {1}, {2}, {3}, {4} , GETDATE())",PrepareStr(txt_first_name.Text), PrepareStr(txt_last_name.Text), PrepareStr(txt_user_name.Text), PrepareStr(txt_password.Text),  PrepareStr(txt_address.Text));

Look for String.Format on MSDN
