URGENT! SQL Query no working!??

Hi all,
I'm trying to retrieve the last set of records which were inserted into the
database. The records which are inserted include a TimeStart. This variable
is set to Now(). WHat i thought I could do is retrieve the records based on
this value, because the retrieval will be done straight after the update.
The SQL Query is:
datinfo.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM Records WHERE (Records.TimeStart = "
&frmL0S1.TStart& ")"

Records.TimeStart is the field where the time is inserted.
frmL0S1.TimeStart stores this time, because this time was carried through a
number of forms before being inserted into the database.
Records.TimeStart is a text field
frmL0S1.TStart is declared as a date field.
I'm not sure if this would be a problem considering the update is working
fine.
I've tried placing single quotation marks around frmL0S1.TStart but that doesn't work
and also converted this to a string but that won't work either!
All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
C

One problem here is that your Records.TimeStart is a text field. If this is a field that stores a date, it should be declared as a datetime.

If you are trying to retrieve all records inserted after, say, 12 PM today, the WHERE would look like this:
"WHERE (Records.TimeStart >= '" & frmL0S1.TStart & "')"

But again, your field in the db needs to be a date field.

Oops, I forgot to mention that frmL0S1 in the example above would hold '4/12/02 12:00:00 PM' and should probably be a text field rather than a date field.
