VBScript Date and Time Functions

Question:
I have a question and answer intranet site that I need to have the system input the current date and time for each question generated. This data needs to be sent to the underlying MS Access database along with the rest of the data on the form. I can't seem to find any examples of how to accomplish this and would appreciate a code sample.

Answer:
All you have to do to make this work is within Access, set the default value of that field to be:

=Now()
Access will automatically add the current date/time to that field. Obviously, you have to make sure the field is of type "Date".
