Seems simple enuff.  Fill out the form, populate the record okay, EXCEPT that I am not getting the time on the DateTime  field in my SQL table.  Date is fun but Time is Zeroes. (according to the Management Studio tool)

        protected void btnSubmit_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (Page.IsValid)
                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString1"].ConnectionString);
                // Create Command object
                SqlCommand command = conn.CreateCommand();

                    // Open Connection

                    // Create INSERT statement with named parameters
                    command.CommandText = "INSERT INTO ContactUs (ContactUs_ID, ContactUs_first_name, ContactUs_last_name, ContactUs_date_entered, ) VALUES (@ContactUs_ID, @ContactUs_first_name, @ContactUs_last_name, @ContactUs_date_entered)";
                    command.CommandTimeout = 15;
                    command.CommandType = CommandType.Text;

                    // Add Parameters to Command Parameters collection
                    command.Parameters.Add("@ContactUs_ID", SqlDbType.VarChar, 6);
                    command.Parameters.Add("@ContactUs_first_name", SqlDbType.VarChar, 30);
                    command.Parameters.Add("@ContactUs_last_name", SqlDbType.VarChar, 30);
                    command.Parameters.Add("@ContactUs_date_entered", SqlDbType.DateTime2);

                    // Fill Parameters from the controls and get the date
                    command.Parameters["@ContactUs_ATTUID"].Value = userID.Text;
                    command.Parameters["@ContactUs_first_name"].Value = userFirstName.Text;
                    command.Parameters["@ContactUs_last_name"].Value = userLastName.Text;
                    command.Parameters["@ContactUs_date_entered"].Value = DateTime.Today;
                    // Display error
                    lblMessage.Text = e.ToString();
                    lblMessage.Visible = true;
                    // Close Connection
                    lblMessage.Text = "Your message has been saved";
                    lblMessage.Visible = true;

Oh, tried this also....

                    DateTime date1 = new DateTime();
                    date1 = DateTime.Today;
                    command.Parameters["@ContactUs_date_entered"].Value = date1;

any HEPL would be appreciated!!   :D

Ahm, yes. It's DateTime.Now instead of DateTime.Today.

You could just use GETDATE() in your query instead (also, you have a trailing comma in your field list before the close paren before "VALUES", I've removed it here):

command.CommandText = "INSERT INTO ContactUs (ContactUs_ID, ContactUs_first_name, ContactUs_last_name, ContactUs_date_entered) VALUES (@ContactUs_ID, @ContactUs_first_name, @ContactUs_last_name, GETDATE())";

Well, it HAS been a long time away from all those options.  So simple, that a old time gets lost.   Testing now....
