Code not working

I am trying to use the below code to save values entered into an unbound field named txtZipCodeEntered. The table to save it to is tblZipCodeHistory in the column ZipEntered and the next column, TimeStamp, is the a time stamp of when it was entered.

After everything I have tried, including making a new form with just the unbound field and button, shows the attached error. Then highlights the line. Any idea of how to fix it?

Private Sub Command3_Click()
Dim Statement As String

Statement = "INSERT INTO tblZipCodeHistory (ZipEntered, TimeStamp ) VALUES ( '{0}', {1} ); "
Statement = Replace(Statement, "{0}", txtZipEntered.Value)
Statement = Replace(Statement, "{1}", Format(Now, "\#m\/d\/yyyy hh\:nn\:ss\#"))
MsgBox Statement
CurrentDb.Execute Statement, dbFailOnError Or dbSeeChanges

End Sub

I must be doing something wrong with the code. I just attached a new database with just the form and table. Same issue comes up. See attached. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

You need to enclose the field name 'TimeStamp' in square brackets.  It seems to be a reserved word which is causing the error:

Statement = "INSERT INTO tblZipCodeHistory (ZipEntered, [TimeStamp] ) VALUES ( '{0}', {1} ); "
