It looks like the error is due to the FormateDate function failing to convert a string to a date (inner exception 3), and then this in turn causes the UpsertData to fail because it's trying to insert a string into a date field (inner exception 4).

Your FormatDate function has a typo I think - you've only put 3 "Y" in there. Please make sure it's SET @submission = formatdate(now(),"DD/MM/YYYY","HH:MM:SS", "es-MX") and try again?

Otherwise, try using SET @submission = SystemDateToLocalDate(NOW()) - not sure if that works for your use-case?
