I am getting this error message:  The column prefix 'UPR30300' does not match with the table name or alias name used in the query.

When I put in (UPR30300.TRXENDDT = ?) I get the error message...

BUT!
When I put in (UPR30300.TRXENDDT = '7/31/2001') I do not get the message...

I do need the ? in the query cause it is a parameter that the end user enters in to select a certain record.  The field TRXENDDT is a Date Field.  BELOW is a sample of the query.  Any help would be great.

==========================================================

SELECT DISTINCT
UPR00100.INACTIVE,
    UPR00100.SOCSCNUM, UPR00100.EMPLOYID,
    UPR00500.DEDUCTON,    
ISNULL
        ((SELECT (UPR30300.UPRTRXAM * .06) AS Share
       FROM UPR00100
       WHERE UPR00100.EMPLOYID = UPR00500.EMPLOYID AND
            UPR00100.EMPLOYID = UPR30300.EMPLOYID AND
           UPR00500.DEDUCTON = '20UNCLP'), 0)
    AS EmplrShare, UPR30300.CHEKNMBR,
    UPR30300.PAYROLCD, UPR30300.PYRLRTYP,
    UPR30300.TRXENDDT, UPR30300.UPRTRXAM
FROM UPR00100 INNER JOIN
    UPR30300 ON
    UPR00100.EMPLOYID = UPR30300.EMPLOYID LEFT OUTER JOIN
    UPR00500 ON
    UPR00100.EMPLOYID = UPR00500.EMPLOYID
WHERE (UPR00100.INACTIVE = 0) AND
    (UPR00500.DEDUCTON = '20UNCLP') AND
    (UPR30300.PAYROLCD = '1200') AND
    (UPR30300.TRXENDDT = ?) OR
    (UPR00100.INACTIVE = 0) AND
    (UPR00500.DEDUCTON = '20LEGP') AND
    (UPR30300.PAYROLCD = '1200') AND
    (UPR30300.TRXENDDT = ?)

Not what's the name of the database, but what type of database (Access, SQL 7 SQL 200, Oracle, etc)

The question mark isn't used as a parameter field in SQL 7.  To do what you want, put your SELECT statement into a stored procedure and pass the date field in as a parameter:

CREATE PROCEDURE TestProc
@dateField datetime
AS

SELECT ...

AND UPR30300.TRXENDDT = @dateField

GO

That will allow you to pass it in as a parameter and get the records you want.  To pull it out in a recordset, just use the line:

set rs = conn.Execute "EXEC TestProc '" & sDate & "'"

That'll pull it out into a recordset.  Remember to put the single quotes around the variable that you pass in.

I am not running the SQL Statement in the SQL Query Analizer.  I am running this statement in VB 6.0 in their Data Reporter.  The Question Mark does work for parameters in the Data Environment.  Maybe I did't clearify what I am using.  Sorry about that.
