this insert statement has a syntax error and I can not spot it.
'this double " after the table name will not go away and I do not see why, the editor insists on putting it back the statement is closed at the bottom

 insertstatement = "INSERT INTO HOURSWORKED  _"  
                        (WORKDATE,STARTTIME,ENDTIME,STARTLUNCH,ENDLUNCH,STARTPERSONEL,ENDPERSONEL,HOURSTHISDAY,PAYEDHRSTHISWEEK,PTODETAIL,PAYEDPTOTHISWEEK,EMPLOYEESOCSEC,WEEKOFYEAR,SYMITARCODE) _
                             VALUES ('" & dateString     & "','" _
                                        & "8:00 AM"      & "','" _

The syntax is wrong. If you want line breaks in your code, you need to close the string at the end of the line and concat all strings together.
I've adjusted the single quotes, it is better to have a pair together in one line. If adding the , within and & outside the double quotes in the old or new line is personal choice.

 insertstatement = "INSERT INTO HOURSWORKED  " & _
"(WORKDATE,STARTTIME,ENDTIME,STARTLUNCH,ENDLUNCH,STARTPERSONEL,ENDPERSONEL,HOURSTHISDAY,PAYEDHRSTHISWEEK,PTODETAIL,PAYEDPTOTHISWEEK,EMPLOYEESOCSEC,WEEKOFYEAR,SYMITARCODE)  VALUES " & _
                                        "('" & dateString     & "'," & _
                                        "'8:00 AM'," & _
                                        "'5:00'," & _
                                        "'12:00 PM'," & _
                                        "'1:00 PM'," & _
                                        "''," & _
                                        "''," & _
                                        "'8.0'," & _
                                        "''," & _
                                        "''," & _
                                        "0," & _
                                        "'" & TXBSOCSEC.Text & "'," & _
