I don't think that u will able to write only time values to a datetime field in the database.

If u are using Oracle database u can try to insert the value by

TO_DATE(Now,'HH:MI:SS')

else

if u are using SqlServer u can use
CONVERT (datetime, '14-OCT-2004')

With SQL server, there are no type that contains the time only. You have to include a date with it and ignore that date.

The language is not a factor. The database is. Even VB.Net is not supporting a Time DataType.

Try to bind a DateTimePicker (having the Format property set to Time) instead of a textbox.

Why? Even the format is set to time, the Value always contains the date and time!

Why don't you bind your field to an invisible control (label or textbox). When the user changes the time, you also modify the invisible control with a valid date and time.

Ok I have sorted it,
I used editTimeIn.Text = (Format(Now, "HH:mm:ss")) to fill the textbox

i also changed System.Data.OleDb.OleDbType.dbdate to
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbType.VarWChar

and it saved fine
