Don't know, and we won't be able to answer you question without you posting for us the schema of the table, query you're trying to insert, and maybe a data mockup of these bit and datetime values.

Keep in mind that experts here cannot connect to your data source and run queries, so you'll have to tell us everything we need to know to troubleshoot.

Maybe because you're not using the proper format?
For example, bit only accepts 0 and 1 nor 'T' or 'F' or 'True' or 'False'.
Dates can't be inserted as text, e.g. '12-31-2016' nor as MS Access way: '#12-31-2016#'

Hi Experts

Sorry for not that detailed question . Am trying to insert the date value and bit type value on a database .

EmailOptOut , data type = bit
CreatedTime , data type = datetime

INSERT INTO tbl (EmailOptOut ,CreatedTime ) value (True,DateTime.Now.toString())

Whenever am trying to any one value alone am getting this error

Date time = > Input string was not in a correct format with DateTime
Bit value => Input string was not in a correct format.

CreatedTime is of type DateTime and you are passing a string into it.
EmailOptOut is of type Bit and you are passing a string into into it.

INSERT INTO tbl (EmailOptOut ,CreatedTime ) value (1,DateTime.Now)

Yes, like I said you're formatting it wrong.
Bit accepts only 0 and 1 representing respectively the False and True.
DateTime.Now.toString()) doesn't provide either the correct format for SQL Server engine. Try to reformat it to 'YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS'.
