hi,

A / is interpreted as M/D/Y. A . is interpreted as D.M.Y.

Thus :

11/1/99 is November 1, 1999.

11.1.99 is January 11, 1999.

here is an example with the orders.db from dbdemo

select *
from orders
where (SaleDate >= '04/12/1988') AND (SaleDate <= '08/12/1988')


Regards, Zif.

Make sure that your dates are formatted correctly. I find that it expects them to be in the format

YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS

You could also try getting rid of the "s

Have you tried your queries out in database desktop or somtehing similar?
