Dates must be delimited with #, just as strings are delimited with ". (This is unique to Access.)
rs1.Open "SELECT MAX(Billno) " & _
         "FROM   Sale_Master " & _
         "WHERE  bill_date = #"& txtbilldate & "#", ...
         (Incidentally, your quote after ‘txtbilldate’ resumes creating a literal string.
‘, cn, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic’ would be considered part of the string, not additional arguments for the .open method, and VB would supply the closing quote—just VB’s way of being helpful...)
