Malformed GUID in query expression


While interacting with SQL Server, the following date format works:

SELECT * FROM Alerts WHERE CreationDateTime > {ts '2006-04-12 10:00:00'} ORDER BY ID ASC

But it generates an exception when using Access with an OleDbConnection.

What is the corrrect time stamp format for Access?

is this an actual sqlserver timestamp column? if so there is no corresponding type in access.

Ok, I guess the problem is that I was attempting to incorporate a DateTime value into my query, since I had had favorable success doing so with SQL Server.  What's the next best thing in Access?
If you are generating your queries in code with parameterised SQL then you could just add a datetime type parameter to your query, and set its value to a datetime from your code.

How are you generating your queries?

Did you try it like this?

   SELECT * FROM Alerts WHERE CreationDateTime > '2006-04-12 10:00:00' ORDER BY ID ASC
