I thought I remembered reading that Access and SQLServer have 2
different methods for adding the date into a database.  For example,
here is what I am trying to accomplish:

' Update date & time & close connection
	SQLstr = "UPDATE MyTable SET LastLogin='" & now() & "'"
	tConn.Execute SQLstr, ,adCmdText
	set tConn = Nothing

My question is what are the different methods?  I think it's something
like one of them requires single quotes and the other requires the (#)
surrounding the date.  Is that right, and if so, which is which?
