Ok it should be something like this. You create 2 parameters using Command Object. You might have a statement already that looks like this.


cmd.commandtext="SELECT <fieldname>,<fieldname2> From <tablename> WHERE <fieldname> BETWEEN ? AND ?"
Then you create parameters.
cmd.CreateParameter ,adDateTime,adParamInput
cmd.CreateParameter ,adDateTime,adParamInput
cmd.Parameters(0) = text1.text
cmd.Parameters(1) = text1.text
cmd.Execute.

I didn't test it. I don't remember if that constant is correct for DateTime. If not replace it with the correct one. Post more if you get errors.

um, btw you have to create connection before using command object i assumed that connection has been already defined. then cmd.activeconnection = <yourconnection>. this should be the line before you create parameters.

You can use the SelectionForumula or ReplaceSelectionFormula properties on the Crystal Report Control in VB.
If you've added the CR control to your VB project you can then pass the dates a user wants the report for as follows:

Report1.SelectionFormula("{table1.date} >= date(" & Format(Text1.Text,"yyyy,mm,dd") & ") and {table1.date} <= date(" & Format(Text2.Text,"yyyy,mm,dd") & ")")

Text1 and Text2 can be text boxes in your VB app that the user enters that start and end dates for the report.
{table1.date} is the table name and field name used in your Crystal Report.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Grant.
