I keep getting the error
Line 1: Incorrect syntax near '6/18/2008'.

It started when I put in the date field.  I just want todays date inserted into the database in the dtpayPaid column but what ever way I change I get different errors, what is the correct syntax.  In my sql 2000 database I have it as a datetime field.

sql = "INSERT tblSADPay (intUicId, strSSN, strVendorNum, strBatchNum, strPGYrs, strRank, strNumDays, strPayPeriod, strbasePay,  strDiffPay, strhousing, strrations, strTotalentitlement, strFTWH, strTTWH, strMiles, strMilesPay, strTotalCheck, dtPayPaid)  VALUES (" & uicID & ", '" & lblSSN.Text & "', '" & txtVendor.Text & "', '" & ddlbatchnum.SelectedValue & "',  '" & lblPayGrYrs.Text & "', '" & lblRank.Text "',  '" & lblDutyDays.Text & "', '" & lblPeriodDuty.Text & "', '" & lblBasePay.Text & "',  '" & lblDiffPay.Text & "', '" & lblHouseAllow.Text & "', '" & lblRations.Text & "', '" & lblTotalEntitlement.Text & "',  '" & lblFTWH.Text & "', '" & lblTotalWH.Text & "', '" & lblMiles.Text & "', '" & lblMilesPay.Text & "', '" & lblTotalCheck.Text & "') '" & Date.Today() & "'"

I beleive the problem is that you do not have a closing ")" at the end of your query for the values so you need to do the following.

If this does not fix it then can you post the query after it is built?  i.e. with the values you are inserting and not the fields you are using?
sql = "INSERT tblSADPay (intUicId, strSSN, strVendorNum, strBatchNum, strPGYrs, strRank, strNumDays, strPayPeriod, strbasePay,  strDiffPay, strhousing, strrations, strTotalentitlement, strFTWH, strTTWH, strMiles, strMilesPay, strTotalCheck, dtPayPaid)  VALUES (" & uicID & ", '" & lblSSN.Text & "', '" & txtVendor.Text & "', '" & ddlbatchnum.SelectedValue & "',  '" & lblPayGrYrs.Text & "', '" & lblRank.Text "',  '" & lblDutyDays.Text & "', '" & lblPeriodDuty.Text & "', '" & lblBasePay.Text & "',  '" & lblDiffPay.Text & "', '" & lblHouseAllow.Text & "', '" & lblRations.Text & "', '" & lblTotalEntitlement.Text & "',  '" & lblFTWH.Text & "', '" & lblTotalWH.Text & "', '" & lblMiles.Text & "', '" & lblMilesPay.Text & "', '" & lblTotalCheck.Text & "') '" & Date.Today() & "')"

Ah I see what I did, I forgot to put in the end bracket after the date field.  The one before it needs to come out though.
