A foreigner living in a foreign land.

I have a love/hate relationship with VBA.
I loathe it as much as I am strangely drawn to it.
It is old but it will not die, it is ugly but equally fascinating.
When I code in VBA, I feel like I discovered an old secret that begs to be understood.
I imagine ways to hack it, to ply its ancient curses into modern idioms.
Then I fail.
Then I try again.

May the god of F# have mercy on my soul and liberate me from my sisyphean plight.

comment Configuring LED pins as input on MACHxo2 board
You probably need to clarify what really is the question you are asking. It's not clear if you are asking why you are getting a "high" signal when measuring or if you have trouble configuring the pin.

comment Configuring LED pins as input on MACHxo2 board
The question is about configuring an existing output already connected to LEDS into an INPUT and he's having trouble understanding the results he gets from his measurement. I apologise if I don't see it, but in what way does your reply answer that question? To me you have pasted unrelated code to blink the LED, that's not answering the question.

This looks like an Excel-related question (since you mention sheets). Add the proper tags. Show us some real data, for instance use a screenshot to show how the sheet looks on screen. Tell us what you attempted so far. What worked and what didn't work.

comment DATE Variable not inserting values properly
You do not define what t is. Is it a recordset? is it a custom class? where does the data come from? Show the details please.

I think you need to create concrete examples of the data in your question. There is nothing in the question or in your comments that could explain your results.

comment DATE Variable not inserting values properly
Maybe I wasn't clear, your only use the decimal value as way to use the date in your SQL queries without having to use date literals #...#. The field that stores the date in the table must still be defined as a DATE. It's just a trick to avoid having the issue of defining a date format as a string literal.

comment How to insert an unambiguous datetime
Something doesn't make sense. If your users are indeed creating the CSV file according to the proper date format, then their locale doesn't matter and then importing the data into my_table should work. Are you the only one importing the data or are your users also importing the data in the Access app on their own computer?
