Ok, all I want to do is insert a date into an Access DB field that is in short date format. Here's the code snippet I'm using:<BR><BR>SQL = SQL & "#" & Request.Form("Birthdate") & "#, "<BR><BR>This code works fine when there is actually a date in the form field, however, if this field is blank, then I get an error that reads: "Syntax error in query expression '##'." How can I fix this? Please help. Thanks in advance.
