Insert into AQM (AgentID, start, StartStatus, stop, StopStatus, Annotation, AnnotationStatus) Values (AgentID, 'StartDate','StartStatus', getdate(), 'Today', 'Call Recorded', 'True')

Note: Include single quotes with string variables as 'var'.

Once you have entered a connection string, click the Test button to verify the connection.
