Hello,
Could someone help me with this question that I need to complete within 4 days? I have a problem with the insert statment on the code below. This code is working fine by inserting the ststement, but the problem is that the DATE is not being inserted into the SQL DB. The default date is being inserted as 1900-01-01 00:00:00.000. I really want today's date to be inserted into the SQL DB when the other data are being inserted. FYI - At the SQL level the column's data type is Date. I have tried the other way to get the Date column to be updated automatically with the Getdate() function but it's not working. Please help solve what is wrong with my code below. NB: class DALCallRegistry is a class the frmCallTally class uses it.

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class DALCallRegistry
    Inherits DALSqlDb
    Dim strSQL As String

    Sub InsertCallData(ByVal calldate As String, ByVal calltime As String, ByVal servicedeskanalyst As String, ByVal typeofcall As String, ByVal comment As String)
        Try

            'calldate = FormatDateTime(calldate, DateFormat.ShortDate)
            'calltime = FormatDateTime(calltime, DateFormat.ShortTime)
            strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblCallTally " & _
                    "(Call_Date, Call_Time, Service_Desk_Analyst, CallType, Comment, StaffNumber) " & _
                    "VALUES(" & calldate & ", '" & calltime & "', '" & servicedeskanalyst & "', '" & typeofcall & "', '" & comment & "', '" & gstrStaffNo & "')"
            ExecuteSQL(strSQL)
            'cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
            'MessageBox.Show("Records saved!", "Saved", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw New Exception(ex.Message)
        End Try

    End Sub

    Sub LoadCallType()
        Try
            strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblCallType"
            PopulateDataset(strSQL, "tblCallType")
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw New Exception(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

End Class

What is the field in database? and Call_Date is datetime datatye? it should be datetime. and instead of passing it as parameter u can use system.datetime.now.

Thanks Pgmer and adam_K for your replies. I have managed to solve this.
