Date format

Dear Experts
I am struggling with date formatting … I am trying to create a query in VBA for a newsletter.  The Query is supposed to show all new stories since the program was last run.  The way I am trying to do this is as follows:

I have a form which has a field showing the date last run (DateLastSent), its control source is the field DateLastSent from the table DateSent.  In the table the date format is “Long Integer” & in the form the format is set to “General Date”

When I create the my query using the code below the date format swaps over from Day/Month/Year Time to Month/Day/Year Time.

How can I get this sorted out, I need to be able to use date and time in the query.

Dim SQL1str As String
SQL1str = "SELECT Posts.[Good to Go], Posts.ID, Posts.Title, Posts.Body, Posts.Published, Posts.Category.Value, Posts.[Encoded Absolute URL]From Posts WHERE (((Posts.Published)>=#" & Me.DateLastSent & "#));"
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, "CopyOfDownloadNewStories"
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Set db = CurrentDb
    db.CreateQueryDef "CopyOfDownloadNewStories", SQL1str
    Set db = Nothing

Dim SQL1str As String
SQL1str = "SELECT Posts.[Good to Go], Posts.ID, Posts.Title, Posts.Body, Posts.Published, Posts.Category.Value, Posts.[Encoded Absolute URL]From Posts WHERE (((Posts.Published)>=#" & Me.DateLastSent & "#));"
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, "CopyOfDownloadNewStories"
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Set db = CurrentDb
    db.CreateQueryDef "CopyOfDownloadNewStories", SQL1str
    Set db = Nothing
