Date Parameter - System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Data type mismatch in criteria expression.

Hi All,

I am working on an ASP.NET website which uses MS Access as a database.

I am trying to pass a date parameter into an Access query but get the following error when executing the OleDbCommand:

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Data type mismatch in criteria expression.

I have double checked that my parameter is formatted as a date using the DateTime data type within ASP.NET.

Is there something else I should know about MS Access date formats which could be causing this issue?
