Correct nonambiguous datetime format in VFP is:

{^YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM:SS}

You could also try ambiguous format:

...   & """,""{" & Now & "}"")"

which can be refused by VFP (this depends on SET DATE and SET STRICTDATE settings).

Additional options are 1) parameter in INSERT command or 2) DATETIME function in INSERT.

DATETIME has 6 parameters and its creation as a string will look ugly, so the parameter seems to be the easiest option.

Hmm, some features of VB.NET are not bad...

Now.ToString("{^yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss}")   is exactly what you need.

If i try & """,""{" & Now & "}"")"  then error is to many arguments and
strSelect = "INSERT INTO expense (Expno, Editpc, Edituser, Edittime) VALUES (1110620, "ROB","xxx","","{11/03/2011 13:17:08}")"

when I try Now.ToString("{^yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss}") then I have same error and my string looks like that

strSelect = "INSERT INTO expense (Expno, Editpc, Edituser, Edittime) VALUES (1110620, "ROB","xxx","{^2011/19/11 01:19:34}")"

when I change "/" to "."  then same data type mismatch

My fault. Double quotes must be removed:

...   & """, " & Now.ToString("{^yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss}") & ")"
