Data Report Between Two Dates

I have created a datareport based on the dataenvironment for a table that keeps tract of contacts. I want to be able to print the report between two dates that the user selects, for instance, 021000 and 031500. My preference would be to input the dates from the dropdown calendar control that ships with VB but it seems to always want to give me the time as well as the date as a result of my selection. If this can't be used I guess I could use a pair of input boxes.

Once this is solved, how would I pass these dates to the datareport?

Any help would be most appreciated.

As far as using the dates, you can format the Now variable which gives the date and time. For example:

Dim date As String
date = Format(Now,"MMDDYY")

that should return the value you are looking for, obviously you can play with the format to make however you wish.

Date in format YYYYMMDD is better.
Store it as String data type.
It is easy to manipulate.
But if you store in format "MMDDYY"
You can convert it to YYMMDD using Left, Mid, Right Function. Use them in your SQL Statement is okay (For Access Database)

You'll need to open dynamicly dataenvironment recordsets:



        DataEnvironment.rsCommand1.Source = "select from Table1 where Date1>=#" & strFirstDate & "# and Date1<=#" & strLastDate & "#"
DataEnvironment.rsCommand1.Open
DataReport1.Show

i feel that the solution would be:
date = Format(Now,"MMDDYY")
