If you use INSER INTO to add record to the DB then this string should be "#" & "20:18:54" & "#".
If you use recordset then just adoRecordset("TimeValue") = CDate("20:15:54")

I struggled with the same problem for awhile - its due to the differing ways different microsoft produts handle dates/time
You dont need to convert the string at all - you just need to put in the sql statement correctly:

strsql = "INSERT INTO <table> (<name of field to contain the time>) VALUES ( #" & <variable containing time string> & "#)

Hope it helps
