Hi Experts,

I am writing a query to insert a record into a Session table.

I can run the query from the Access SQL interface, but when I run it from VBA I get a "Syntax error in INSERT INTO statement".

Here is the srting from the immediate window: "INSERT into [SESSIONS] ([Sess_Start], [Sess_End], Username, UserID, Sess_Data, LanguageID, Locale, LastScreen, Usage, Success) VALUES (#08/11/2010 1:26:46 AM#, #08/11/2010 1:27:22 AM#, 'FinFlon', 9, 'SESSION_DATA_DUMP_08/11/2010 1:27:22 AM:SysUsage=OBSERVATION:Username=9:UserID=0:ObsSpecies=10:ObsCriteria=:ObsCentroidMap=:ObsDateDay=:ObsDateMonth=:ObsDateYear=:ObsDateUnknown=False:ObsQty=0:ObsNotes=:ENDDUMP=08/11/2010 1:27:22 AM:', 1, 1, 6, 1, False);"

Any help or ideas would be great.

Thanks,

I can't see anything wrong with this sql, but I can reproduce your problem.

Instead of an ado command you could do it using :

Currentdb.execute strsql, dbfailonerror

which works OK.
