Access 2016 SQL INSERT statement via Excel VBA ADO mystery

When I send this to Access 2016 via ADO/VBA I get an error 'syntax error in INSERT statement'.

But when I copy/paste the same into the Query window in Access it runs OK. No error!

Am I missing something?

Thanks

INSERT INTO tblManualData (ApplicationID, Status, StartDate, Hospital, Induction, InductionDate, DocsOS, CertNo, DBSReturnDate, GeneralNotes, AW, Current, Withdrawn, OnHold) VALUES ('6913078','On Hold','23/09/2016','UCH','Yes','01/01/2016','Birth Certificate',' 11111','20/06/2016','Some notes go here.','23/09/2016','23/09/2016','23/09/2016','23/09/2016')

Open in new window


Note: the Date fields are Date/Time. All others are Short Text. The GeneralNotes is Long Text.

You must use correct string expressions for the date values, like:

VALUES ('6913078','On Hold',#2016/09/23#,'UCH','Yes',#2016/01/01#,'Birth Certificate',  ..etc.

Gustav,
It's happy with this though ...

INSERT INTO tblManualData (ApplicationID, Status, StartDate) VALUES ('6913078','On Hold','23/09/2016')

Open in new window


Also it's happy with the UK date format.

As long as the date is unambiguous,  Access will "correct" the format.  But 01/05/16 will be JANUARY 5th NOT MAY 1st.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Both can't be right. The expressions must be as stated to play safe.

Is the column [Current] being detected as a reserved word?

Got it!
Yes fanpages. I made it [Current] and it worked. Looks like Current is a reserved word.

Also, I changed the Date data to have # around it. Thanks for the advice.

Thanks all!
