Having trouble passing a string which is converted to a date from an Access form to a SQL stored procedure.
Below is the function:

Since the error appears to be generated from a call from Access to SQL, you might be able to wrap an
ON ERROR GOTO MyErrRoutine

That way you can put a break when the error occurs and check to see what text was passed.  It'd be helpful to know the string that caused the problem.

>> Error converting data type varchar to datetime.

Kindly check the format of datetime you are getting as output from Access.
If it is some other format other than the default format / timezone set in SQL Server, then use appropriate CONVERT with appropriate styles so that string can be converted into datetime without any issues.
