ODBC Query to MSAccess

Hi there,

I stuck with this problem,

Im using ODBC to extract data from MSAccess Tables.

All works fine when querying for all data from the table:
        SELECT * FROM Person

But I want to be able to extract only the records with its DOB field within the current month.

Ive used the "SELECT * FROM PERSON WHERE EXTRACT(MONTH FROM DOB) = variable month" statement on Paradox tables and it works fine
Is there an equivelent statement to use in querying MSAccess Tables to only retreive record that are relevant to the current or selected month.

Thankyou
James

hi  hulsej,

the sql statement:

select * from PERSON where month(DOB) = MonatVar

I Think DOB is a Datefield
Manotvar is IntegerTyp holds 1 to 12

hi hulsej,

my answer is just not complete
the delphicode should be:

query1.close;
query1.clear;
query1.sql.add('select * from PERSON where month(DOB) = '+IntToStr(MonatVar);
try
  query1.open;
except
  {errorhandling}
end;

try it

Thankyou this statement worked prefectly.

I want to incorperate the days as well. (what im trying to do is assess whether it is someones birthday with in the next three days)

Ive tried a few different approaches with no succsess (this is my first crack at SQL stuff).

what do I need to do in order to query on the month and the next three days in the one statement.

Thanks again

Later
Jay
