you have this:
FormatDateTime(Now(),2) & " " & FormatDateTime(Now(),3)
is that also a datetime field or a text field?

anyhow, can you check the value of sqlins after that line, and post it here.

then you need to put # around that value also...
ie, replace:
 '"& FormatDateTime(Now(),2) &" "& FormatDateTime(Now(),3) &"',

by
 #"& month(now()) & "/" & day(now()) & "/" & year(now()) & "#,

OR

format(Date(),"mm/dd/yyyy")

as Date() does not include the time stamp that Now() does.

Go to your VBA Tools/References and check to make sure you don't have any missing references.
Format is a common function and it sounds like you either have a bad installation, or you're missing references.
It's not erroring with the Date() function is it?

Where is DOB coming from outside of this SQL?

first things first....go back to the query before you put in the format...

second...
Access needs the # only...in your query you are putting '#  (notice the single quote there...)

third...
great way to test the query is to put:
response.write(sqlins)
response.end()

and then look through what is printed out on the page....




BTW
try this:
sqlins = "insert into cust (buyid, rock, ticket, title, fname, lname, dob , maritalstatus, email, hphone, otherphone, hearus, transfer, tnumber, tnetwork, jobstatus, jobtitle, empltime,empYear,empMonth, nameofbank, banksortcode, bankaccountno, nameonaccount, timewithbank,bankyear,bankmonth, insdate, totalpurchase) values ("&bid&", '"& rock &"', '"& session("ticket") &"', '"& fixQuotes(title) &"', '"& fixQuotes(fname) &"', '"& fixQuotes(lname) &"', #" & formatdatetime(dob,2) & "#, '"& fixQuotes(maritalstatus) &"', '"& fixQuotes(email) &"', '"& fixQuotes(hphone) &"', '"& fixQuotes(otherphone) &"', '"& fixQuotes(hearus) &"', "& transfer &", '"& fixQuotes(mobiletobetransferred) &"', '"& fixQuotes(networkwith) &"', '"& fixQuotes(jobstatus) &"', '"& fixQuotes(jobtitle) &"', "& empltime &", "& empYear &", "& empMonth &", '"& fixQuotes(nameofbank) &"', "& banksortcode &", "& bankaccountno &", '"& fixQuotes(nameonaccount) &"', "& timewithbank &",  "& bankyear &", "& bankMonth &", #"& FormatDateTime(Now(),2) &" "& FormatDateTime(Now(),3) &"#, "&totalpurchase&")"
