Insert in Access DB

Dear Experts,

I can not figure out what I am doing wrong.

I have two pages  WateringNote.cfm & NewWaterAction. The first page WateringNote.cfm allows the user to select a zone and to insert the date. The second page NewWaterAction inserts the information from the form into my Access database.   Now if I remove the date field from the two pages it works. Here is my code for WateringNote.cfm

<cfif IsDefined("URL.MM_logout") AND URL.MM_logout EQ "1">
  <cflock scope="Session" type="Exclusive" timeout="30" throwontimeout="no">
    <cfset Session.MM_Username="">
    <cfset Session.MM_UserAuthorization="">
  <cfset MM_logoutRedirectPage="../Index.cfm">
  <cfif MM_logoutRedirectPage EQ "">
    <cfset MM_logoutRedirectPage=CGI.SCRIPT_NAME>
  <cfset MM_logoutQuery=ListDeleteAt(CGI.QUERY_STRING,ListContainsNoCase(CGI.QUERY_STRING,"MM_logout=","&"),"&")>
  <cfif MM_logoutQuery NEQ "">
    <cfif Find("?",MM_logoutRedirectPage) EQ 0>
      <cfset MM_logoutRedirectPage=MM_logoutRedirectPage & "?" & MM_logoutQuery>
      <cfset MM_logoutRedirectPage=MM_logoutRedirectPage & "&" & MM_logoutQuery>
  <cflocation url="#MM_logoutRedirectPage#" addtoken="no">
<cflock scope="Session" type="ReadOnly" timeout="30" throwontimeout="no">
  <cfset MM_Username=Iif(IsDefined("Session.MM_Username"),"Session.MM_Username",DE(""))>
  <cfset MM_UserAuthorization=Iif(IsDefined("Session.MM_UserAuthorization"),"Session.MM_UserAuthorization",DE(""))>
<cfif MM_Username EQ "">
  <cfset MM_referer=CGI.SCRIPT_NAME>
    <cfset MM_referer=MM_referer & "?" & CGI.QUERY_STRING>
  <cfset MM_failureURL="../Index.cfm?accessdenied=" & URLEncodedFormat(MM_referer)>

Here is my code for NewWaterAction.cfm:

What am I doing wrong?

One problem is that date is a reserved word.

Second problem would be if it was not in a valid format.

Use this :

<CFQUERY datasource="Garden">
INSERT INTO Watering (Zone,DateCol)
     VALUES(<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar" value="#Form.ZoneList#">,
             <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar" value="#DAteFormat(Form.Date1, 'MM/DD/YYYY)# #TimeFormat(Form.Date1, 'h:mm tt')#">)

Thanks mrichmon,

That solved the problem. I will look up the reserved words so I do not make that mistake again.
