From an interest I read a lot about computers, programming and security stuff (eg back doors, memory leaks, abuse of unintended weaknesses). Once I read an article about SQL injection and the use of backslashes in query messages (and ways for data manipulation). When I saw your topic headline I immediately thought of that, in my opinion it would be of no interest to an Excel user. I didn't notice I was reading a question in the Access forum.
Some googling brought me here, this might be of some use. Access VBA & SQL date formats
Yeah, a lot of people are unaware that the "Unanswered Questions" listing is not just for the Excel Questions forums, but all the Questions Forums.
Underneath the title, in gray type, it tells you which forum each question is found under.
On the old board, it was even harder to notice, as the forum was all the way over on the right side by itself.
