Need help with importing Date() using parameterized query...

Hi,

I'm using a parameterized query to import a record from my MySQL Database into Access.  I want the date to be formatted as, "mm/dd/yy", but I'm not sure of the Constant to use in my .CreateParameter statement.  I tried this:

.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter(, adDBDate, adParamInput, , Format(Date, "mm/dd/yy"))

but that doesn't work since the format for adDBDate is "yyyy/mm/dd".

How can i do it?  It is important that I store the date in the format I specified.

Thanks!

DateTime columns are not stored in a format.  What matters is that it correctly knows the correct date and time value so that when retrieved it displays correctly in your application formatted as "mm/dd/yy".

So this should be fine:
.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("{paramName}", adDBDate, adParamInput, , Format(Date, "yyyy/mm/dd"))
