Just write query1.SQL:='Select * frm yourTable where YourDateField=:DateParam and ....'

Then query1.ParamByName('DateParam').AsDateTime:=DesiredDate;(date type variable)

hi blueylam,

in addition to dwwang's correct answer,

you can get the currentdate with the  functions date or now

query1.ParamByName('DateParam').AsDateTime:=Now;
