    Help formating time..

    I'm trying to pass a variable from a ASP page back into a DB call to see if both my title & date match up to a product.

    Here's my SQL Statement:
    Code:
    set rs =db.execute("SELECT * FROM Calendar WHERE [Title] LIKE '" & replace(request("title"),"'","''") & "%' AND [EventDate] ='#" & request("EventDate") & "#' ORDER BY EventDate")
    The first part of it for the title works fine, but I keep getting a data type mismatch on the date part. I added a # at each end, because when I tried this as a query against my access DB it wouldn't find the date otherwise. What am I screwingup here?

    get rid of the single quotes around your date. just use the #.

    And date = #5/22/2006#

    NOT

    And date = '#5/22/2006#'

    Ok, I changed it...and what happens now is get the following:

    Code:
    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
    
    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in date in query expression '[Title] LIKE 'Broker Appraisal%' AND [EventDate] =#6#'.
    
    /todaysmind/http/main_classes_list_view2.asp, line 25
    If you notice, it has [EventDate] = #6#...Well the way I have this setup, is when it runs through the DB...it writes out the class title & eventdate as a parameter on a hyperlink, eg. <a href="class_view_2.asp?title=<%=title%>&eventdate=<%=eventdate%>">
    <%=Title%></a>

    So, when I hover over them, I see the values are getting passed with the link...but when I click I get whats above. And if I change months, i'll get 5 for may, 6 for june & 7 for july...so it looks like the #6# is the eventdate only containing the number of the month.

    I think your mistake is within the requesting of your values. Are your trying to get the values of a form or a querystring?

    Try something like this :

    Form :
    Code:
    set rs =db.execute("SELECT * FROM Calendar WHERE [Title] LIKE '" & replace(request.form("title"),"'","''") & "%' AND [EventDate] ='#" & request.form("EventDate") & "#' ORDER BY EventDate")
    or querystring :
    Code:
    set rs =db.execute("SELECT * FROM Calendar WHERE [Title] LIKE '" & replace(request.querystring ("title"),"'","''") & "%' AND [EventDate] ='#" & request.querystring ("EventDate") & "#' ORDER BY EventDate")
    Maybe this helps.

    Grtz
