Use the quotes around text strings, but not around any number or date

 I'm having problems with an insert statement in one of my pages that is
driving me nuts! I'm getting a "syntax error" and I'm sure it is just the
quotes that I'm using, but I've never really understood the use of quotes in
SQL - so I can't figure out how to make it work. The statement is:
<CFQUERY NAME="insert" DataSource="book">
    INSERT INTO tblBook
    (item, author, pub, date, price, condition, format, cat, desc)
    ('#form.item#', '#form.author#', '#form.pub#', #form.date#,
#form.price#, '#form.condition#', '#form.format#', '#form.cat#',
This is the latest incarnation - I've tried it a couple of different ways.
If anyone can help I'd be eternally grateful!!! I'd send the URL, but it is
in a protected directory - you understand... ;)
