Date Field Filter

I'm trying to filter a table based on a Date Field. I'm currently doing in this way: Data > '19/02/2000' but it's giving a completely strange result. Dates before this are being returned. By the way my regional settings are set to dd/mm/yyyy.
Watch Question

Did you set the Table.Filtered to True ?

Best Regards

Try this example:

DmCav.Fact.Filter:='fecha >= '+''''+formatDateTime('dd/mm/yyyy',fIni)+''''+'AND fecha <='+''''+fORMATdATEtIME('DD/MM/YYYY',FfIN)+'''';

DmCav is a Datamodule
Fact is a Table
Fecha is a field containing Dates.
fini and ffin are two TdateTime variables containing Dates that the user provide.

table1.filter := 'Data > '+quotedstr('19/02/2000');
table1.filtered := true;
