My SQL skills are a bit rusty, and I so far remember about SELECT, not yet in INSERT, INSERT INTO, and UPDATE. I dunno if am I doing the code right, especially in adding data based on what's typed in the text boxes.

SQLstr = "INSERT INTO TableTestEmployes VALUES('" & TextBox1.Text & "','" & TextBox2.Text & "','" & _ 
           TextBox3.Text & "','" & ComboBox1.Text & "')"

^ Is this the right one? or is there a more organized way? I have like 16 items asked to the new employee on that form.

SQLstr = "INSERT INTO TableTestEmployes VALUES('" & TextBox1.Text & "','" & TextBox2.Text & "','" & _ 
           TextBox3.Text & "','" & ComboBox1.Text & "')"

This syntax will work as long as you are assigning values to all fields, with the order they are declared in the table. If you change the order of the fields or don't assign value to one or more fields then you have to use the full syntax:

INSERT INTO Table
(FieldName1,FieldName2,FieldName3) 
VALUES
('Value1','Value2','Value3')

Updated code, but I get a "Syntax Error in INSERT INTO Statement" when I'm about to register a new user.

1. try to print the sql before executing
2. try to execute the sql at backend and check if you are getting any error.

You are missing a comma (,) after Year and before Address. You are also using 1 quote too many when assigning values with cmbGender.Text, cmbDay.Text, txtEmailAddress.Text, txtPassword.Text, cmbSecretQ2.Text.
You are adding the quote with the

& "','" & _

and then adding another quote with the

"'" & cmbGender.Text
