Hi,

Since you use radiobuttons for months, you can use the ItemIndex property as month.

Thus RadioGroup1.ItemIndex + 1 returns the month.

eg January = 1
     ..

Now you've the month and date in number value and you can create a date to use in your query.

Regards, Zif.

Hi,

I think that there is a mismatch between days and months order. Look at your regional settings first. But I suppose that you have to start BDE Administrator an look at the 'Configuration-System-Formats-Date'.
There is a field 'MODE' with value = 1  for DMY, which is important in this case.

One more thing: DATE is a reserved word in BDE SQL and perhaps you should have to rename the field named 'Date'.

Regards, Geo
