I'm getting a "Syntax error converting datetime from character to string".
The returned error says it is located on this line of code: cmd.executenonquery()

Please see code below. All and any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Public Sub btnSubmit_Click (byval s as object, byval e as system.eventargs)
	Dim con as sqlConnection
	dim cmd as sqlcommand
	Dim dtr as Sqldatareader
	Dim str as string
	Dim strAccount as string
	dim BreakTestID as integer
	
	con = new sqlconnection ("Server=sqlserver;UID=sa;PWD=#####;Database=BreakTest")
	
	str = "INSERT tblBreakTest (BreakTestNO, InstallDate, CustomerNO, LoginID,BreaktestDate,Division,Application, TypeofService, Comments, Location, ProdDesc, NoofLines, ProductNO, ReturnReason, Status, SplicerName, SplicerRegion, SplicerCountry, SplicerPhone, SplicerPostalCode, SplicerState) VALUES "
	str = str & "(@BreakTestNo, @InstallDate, @Customer, @Login, @BreakTestDate, @Division, @Application, @TypeofService, @Comments, @Location, @ProdDesc, @NoofLines, @Product, @ReturnReason, @Status, @SplicerName, @Region, @Country, @SplicerPhone, @PostalCode, @State )"
	cmd = New sqlcommand (str, con)
	cmd.parameters.add ("@BreakTestNo", lblBreakTestID.Text)
	cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate", txtinstallDate.text)
	cmd.parameters.add ("@Customer", lblCompanyNo.text)
	cmd.parameters.add ("@Login", label2.text)

	cmd.parameters.add ("@State", txtState.text)
	
	strAccount = request.cookies("AccountCookie").value
	
	Select Case strAccount

	Case Else
		cmd.parameters.add("@Status", "Initiated")
	End Select
	
	con.open()
	cmd.executenonquery()
	con.close()

error is from this:
cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate", txtinstallDate.text)
try to change to this:
cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate",Cdate(txtinstallDate.text))

Of course you need to user's input first.

Changed the code. User now recieves this error: Conversion from string "tbd" to type 'Date' is not valid.
Error is on cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate", Cdate(txtinstallDate.text))

you need to check this txtinstallDate.text first.
before you pass this string in, you should put an validation on this field.
something likes a mask.

try to change like this:
if (txtinstallDate.text != "")
 cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate",Cdate(txtinstallDate.text))
else
 cmd.parameters.add ("@InstallDate",datetime.minvalue)

In the simplest terms how many date columns does the table contain and what are the values you're passing through the command?
