Cant Insert date value in access database

Here's my code:
 
  iTime_Slot = (myDataReader.Item("Time_Slot"))
  iDate = (myDataReader.Item( "Date"))      

               DBInsert.CommandText = "Insert Into Attendees " _
               & "(First_Name, Last_Name, Company, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone, Domain_Name, Email, Date, Time_Slot)" _
               & "values ( '" & First_Name & "','" & Last_Name & "','" & Company & "','" & Address1 & "','" & City & "','" & State & "','" & Zip & "','" & TotalPhone & "','" &
               Website & "','" & Email & "','" & zDate & "','" &  iTime_Slot & "' )"

Suffice it to say, the date & time selected by user are successfully passed to the variables iTime_Slot & iDate. Moreover, in SQL string I have no problem repassing the iTime_Slot time to the 2nd table. I cannot seem to pass date though. I am very frustrated as the values I am trying to pass to the second table, while the user makes his choice, are nonetheless coming from fields in the first table. In borth tables, date ad time have the same data type, i.e. Date/Time. So naturally, I am ervy frustrated.

Does anyone have the solution of passing the date variable, selected by user from table 1 into the date field of table 2?

Nevermind, I solved the problem.

For those who run into this situation, don't name your database field "Date" as that is a predefined term in ASP. I changed field to Date_Slot and everything worked fine.

Before i submit , i wish to let u let u know a require thing to do  which i have understood from your problem statment.

YOu need to set the datatype for your database fields named 'Date' to 'Date/Time' and make its format to 'Medium Date'.

Then put '#' as prefix to your date variable. like ........

I have made a little change in the insert script mentioned by you.

 DBInsert.CommandText = "Insert Into Attendees " _
               & "(First_Name, Last_Name, Company, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone, Domain_Name, Email, Date, Time_Slot)" _
               & "values ( '" & First_Name & "','" & Last_Name & "','" & Company & "','" & Address1 & "','" & City & "','" & State & "','" & Zip & "','" & TotalPhone & "','" &
               Website & "','" & Email & "',#" & zDate & "#,'" &  iTime_Slot & "' )"


Still u were not able to solve the problem then put replace 'Date' (your database field) with '[Date]'.

You will definitely find a solution.
