Importing a CSV file with a Date/Time field, the field nulls itself out

P: 133
I currently importing a csv file with an import specification declaring the field values. one field is a date/time field. when the csv file is imported, it clears the date field with null values. the code is listed below.

Any suggestions?

As a work around, the import specification declares the date field as a text to maintain the values. thereafter, the data is inserted into a new table with the date field updated with the CDate function.
