Hi Experts! I need yur assistance to solve SQL Server 6.5 date problem.

I had a program written in C++ Connect to SQL Server via ODBC Driver. Below is the partial statement :

if (SQL_SUCCESS == (rc = ::SQLAllocHandle(SQL_HANDLE_STMT,     hdbc, &hstmt)))
{
    strcpy(statement, "SELECT fldItemformula from            tblformula WHERE flditemcode = ");
    strcat(statement, "'");
    strcat(statement, ITEMCODE);
    strcat(statement, "'");
    strcat(statement, " AND DatePart('d',                fldReportoingDate)= ");
    strcat(statement, "DatePart('d', '");
    strcat(statement, REPORTDAY);
    strcat(statement, "')");
      
    LPCSTR szSQL = statement;
    if (SQL_SUCCESS == (rc = ::SQLPrepare(hstmt,(unsigned         char*)szSQL, SQL_NTS)))
    {
      if (SQL_SUCCESS == (rc = ::SQLExecute(hstmt)))
      {
         SDWORD cb;
         double iT_Amt;
              SQLBindCol(hstmt, 1, SQL_C_DOUBLE, &iT_Amt, 0,            &cb);
         rc = SQLFetch(hstmt);
           etc .. etc

This statement in which I used in MSAccess 97, it return me a value but unfortunately, when I connect to SQLServer 6.5, using the same statement, it return me a false value. When I debug this program by using this statement :

'SELECT fldItemFormula FROM tblformula WHERE fldItemcode = ITEMCODE'

it does return me the value. It seems like the problem is cause by the date. However, when I use the statement in Visual Data Manager (VB5), the staement is correct. I hope that someone would be kind enuff to help me solve this problem.

what are your variable types?

>strcat(statement, ITEMCODE);
>strcat(statement, REPORTDAY);
are ITEMCODE and REPORTDAY some sort of string?

>'SELECT fldItemFormula FROM tblformula WHERE fldItemcode = ITEMCODE'
looking at this statement it appears as if ITEMCODE is a numeric.

you might want to look at using CString szSQL and use the szSQL.Format() function to set up the select statement.

All of them is a string...except fldreportingdate is a date (in SQL server). I use SQLPrepare to execute this statement... However, it work in MSAccess but not in SQLServer

I think it is more SQL question. Your DATEPART function incorrect. Use: DatePart(day, fldReportoingDate). I hope it will solve your problem.
