Probably a good idea to post the SQL for the insert query :-)

I am loading MS Access Database from VB.Net
Insert into tmpReport ([FirstName], [MiddleName],[LastName],[SSN],[Address],[City],[State],[Zip],[DOB],[IsMale],[HomePhone],[CellPhone],[WorkPhone],[ShippingAddress],[IsEmailShipment],[EmailAddress],[DCity],[DState],[DZip],[BestTimeToCall],[IsLeaveMsg],[IsPolicyHolder],[TypeofInsurance],[PolicyHolderName],[RelationshiptoPolicyHolder],[PolicyDOB],[PolicySSN],[Physician1],[Physician1PhnNumber],[Physician1FaxNumber],[Physician2],[Physician2PhnNumber],[Physician2FaxNumber],[Physician3],[Physician3PhnNumber],[Physician3FaxNumber],[CaseManager],[Organization],[CMPhoneNumber],[ReferredBy],[Relationship],[RelationPhoneNumber]) values ('" & txtFName.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtMIName.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtLName.Text.Trim() & "'," & iSSN & ",'" & strAddress & "','" & txtCity.Text.Trim() & "','" & strState & "'," & iZip & ",'" & txtDOB.Text.Trim() & "'," & isMale & "," & iHPn & "," & iCellPhone & "," & iWPhone & ",'" & strShipping & "'," & isEmailShipInfo & ",'" & txtEmail.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtDCity.Text.Trim() & "','" & strDState & "'," & txtDZipCode.Value.Trim() & ",'" & txtBestTimeToCall.Text.Trim() & "'," & isLeaveMsg & "," & isPolicyHolder & "," & iVariable & ",'" & txtPolicyHolderName.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtRelationshipPolicyHolder.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtPolicyHolderDOB.Text.Trim() & "'," & txtPolicySSN.Value.Trim() & ",'" & strPhy1 & "','" & txtP1Phn.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtP1Fax.Text.Trim() & "','" & strPhy2 & "','" & txtP2Phn.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtP2Fax.Text.Trim() & "','" & strPhy3 & "','" & txtP3Phn.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtP3Fax.Text.Trim() & "','" & strCM & "','" & txtOrganization.Text.Trim() & "'," & txtCPhoneNumber.Text & ",'" & txtReferredBy.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtRefRelationship.Text.Trim() & "','" & txtRefRelationshipPhoneNumber.Value.Trim() & "')

I don't see a WHERE clause for criteria - per the error.

debug the code, and get the output of the insert query and then try to execute the query in access database directly. then you will get the exact error.

ok.  That error implies that you are tying to put ... for example ... a Text value in a Date/Time data type, Text value in a Numeric data type ... something to that effect.  Basically the wrong data type into a field with a different data type.

Where you are passing Values like iSSN, iZip, isMale, iHPn, iCellPhone, iWPhone, isEmailShipInfo, isLeaveMsg, isPolicyHolder, iVariable

I am going to assume that variables starting with i are integers, and is are booleans.

You will want to make sure that your access database has the respective types (ex. iSSN will want SSN field to be integer, boolean for isMale etc.)  If you want to store only strings, you will want iSSN.ToString(), isMale.ToString()

Otherwise, it seems like you have the fields/values in the right order (couldn't hurt to double check).

Good luck.
