In my vb6 form I have a DTPicker field and I'm using it for tracking time.  The format is dtpTime and when I store the value in SQL server I chose the datatype to be time(7).

Is that a correct setup between the application and the DB

See below example
The storage space taken by the TIME data type is as follows:
Specified Scale
Result (precision, scale)       Column length (bytes)       Fractional seconds precision
time       (16,7)       5       7
time(0)       (8,0)       3       0-2
time(1)       (10,1)       3       0-2
time(2)       (11,2)       3       0-2
time(3)       (12,3)       4       39145
time(4)       (13,4)       4       39145
time(5)       (14,5)       5       39209
time(6)       (15,6)       5       39209
time(7)       (16,7)       5       39209

time(7) is fine to track time more acuracy

When I run the code in vb6, I get this error:

"multiple-step ole db operation generated errors. check each ole db status value if available. no work was done"

vb code where error is produced, see below on line 11


            esql = "select * from tblOrgActivities"
            rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
            rec.AddNew
            
            
            If var4 = "Completing" Or var4 = "Participating" Then
            rec!Agency = var3
            rec!PIID = var2
            rec!Method = var4
            rec![Activity Name] = Text2
            rec![From] = DTPicker1  'error is here
            rec![To] = DTPicker2
            rec![Activity Desc] = Text5
            rec!EntryTime = ServerTime
            rec!FiscalHours = Text3
            rec!PrePostTestName = Text4
            rec!Location = Text1
            rec![Activity Outcome] = Text8
            rec![0 To 7] = Check1
            rec![8 To 12] = Check2
            rec![13 To 17] = Check3
            rec![18 To 20] = Check4
            rec![21 and over] = Check5
            End If

check each ole db status value if available.
Have you done this?
What is your ADO provider ?  If you are not sure what I mean, post your connection string.

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rec = New ADODB.Recordset
conn.Open "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=" & ConnectionIP & ",1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog= " & CAPDB & "; User ID=sa;Password=****"

rec![From] = DTPicker1.Value.ToLongTimeString();

Or
DTPicker1.Value.ToShortTimeString();

and what is the value you are try to pass to rec![From]

sqloledb does not support the new data types (such as time) you need to use SQLNCLI10 instead.

Do I simply just change it in the code and that's it?
