SetGenFilter() in Paradox7 using Dates

I wish to ask the user to input a date via a Dialog box and then produce a report of Date Leave field after this date. However the table is not indexed on date leave Field and the report ideally doesnt want to be indexed on date leave. An obvious answer would be to use a dynarray and setGetFilter. The syntax of
dynFilter["date Leave"] = "> [Date var from DialogBox]"
report.SetGenFilter(Dynarray)
does not work as setgenfilter works with strings! Does anybody know a workaround to solve this?
The Report is not delivered yet! I wish to achieve the same effect as going into design mode for report and entering a value in the filter dialog box for date leave field of say
"> 1.1.98"
Cheers Andy!

There's a trick I used to do a while ago with Paradox.  Try opening the form hidden, then in design mode, set the filter, then run it.  This allows you to set properties as if your where working in design mode.  The sequence would be something like this,

if RepName.load("ReportName.rsl") then
   repname.design()
   repname.object.property = whatever
   repname.run
endif

This should be enough to get you on your way.  If not, let me know & I'll see if I can find my old code that did this. (I don't code in Paradox anymore, Delphi's just as easy and much faster)
