invalid datetime format: insert date/time into Access from Java

I want to insert a datetime value to Access, but I get this error:


net.ucanaccess.jdbc.UcanaccessSQLException: UCAExc:::3.0.4 data exception: invalid datetime format


Here is the code :

private void txtsubmitActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
SimpleDateFormat A = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
Peminjaman P= new Peminjaman(setIDTrans(),txtid.getText(),A.format(txttglpinjam.getDate()),A.format(txttglkembali.getDate()),txtplat.getText(),txtnama.getText(),txtdriver.getText());
c.InsertPeminjamanD(P);

Answer

The error message indicates that your InsertPeminjamanD method is ultimately trying to do something like

INSERT INTO Table1 (DateTimeField) VALUES ('31/05/2016')

and that won't work for two reasons:

  1. UCanAccess expects date literals to be enclosed in hash marks (#), and

  2. UCanAccess normally expects xx/yy/zzzz date literals to be MM/dd/yyyy, not dd/MM/yyyy.

So, the above query will work if it is rearranged as ...

INSERT INTO Table1 (DateTimeField) VALUES (#05/31/2016#)

... although it really would be better to use a PreparedStatement and pass it a proper date value:

String sql = "INSERT INTO Table1 (DateTimeField) VALUES (?)";
PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
ps.setDate(1, java.sql.Date.valueOf("2016-05-31"));
ps.executeUpdate();
