Dear sir,
Now, I use Microsoft Access 95 as my database and Visual Basic 4.0. After I finished my crystal report. I try to select group of record with SelectionFormula . But I can't get any report after I try to send in a date format. How can I solve this problem? I have tried for several ways which I know but it's not work..

Such as;

crystalreport1.selectionformula = "{tblrpt.somedate} = #" & format(maskedbox1.text, "mm/dd/yy") & "#"

or

crystalreport1.selectionformula = "{tblrpt.somedate} = #" & cvdate(maskedbox1.text) & "#"

or

crystalreport1.selectionformula = "{tblrpt.somedate} = " & cvdate(maskedbox1.text)

PS. I format my date as short date format.

CRW uses a different date specifier.  Make sure your reports have "Convert Date-Time to Date" checked in options and use the following syntax.

crystalreport1.selectionformula = "{tblrpt.somedate} = date(1998,05,02)"

date has a parm format of date(yyyy,mm,dd).

 

instead of this:
"crystalreport1.selectionformula = "{tblrpt.somedate} = #" & format(maskedbox1.text, "mm/dd/yy") & "#" "


There are little issues selecting dates in CRW.  It is almost always better to specifiy a date range rather than a single date.
i.e. instead of  {some.date} = date(1997,1,1) use {some.date} >= date(1997,1,1) and {some.date} < (1997,1,2)

Good Luck
