Hi to all. Working my way through CF and need some help. I have a SQL statement and I will give you the last three lines.

AND a.pointname = '#strPointName#'
AND a.rec_time_str >= '#dtFormatDate#'
AND a.rec_time_str < '#dtFormatDatePlus1#'

You can easly see my Question .. .. CF doesn't like the '<' in my string. What do I use? I would like to give you hunderds of points, but I will save them for the REAL hard questions.
regards

within a cfquery, this is valid. are you trying to put a string within cfquery , ie like
<cfquery>
#strQuery#
</cfquery
if thats the case use #preservesinglequotes(strQuery)#

Ok .. .. here is the full Query.

<CFQUERY name="InsertIntoPre" Dtasource="#Application.DSN#">

INSERT INTO pre_avg_data(pointname, red_method, rate, date_changed, value)
SELECT a.pointname, a.red_method, a.rate,
a.rec_time_str, c.value_final
FROM trend_data_master a, trend_data_values c
WHERE a.trend_data_master_uid = c.trend_data_master_uid
AND a.pointname = '#strPointName#'
AND a.rec_time_str >= '#dtFormatDate#'
AND a.rec_time_str < '#dtFormatDatePlus1#'

</CFQUERY>

When I take out the '<' and replace it with '=' then CF is happy.

try

<CFQUERY name="InsertIntoPre" Dtasource="#Application.DSN#">

INSERT INTO pre_avg_data(pointname, red_method, rate, date_changed, value)
SELECT a.pointname, a.red_method, a.rate,
a.rec_time_str, c.value_final
FROM trend_data_master a, trend_data_values c
WHERE a.trend_data_master_uid = c.trend_data_master_uid
AND a.pointname = '#strPointName#'
AND a.rec_time_str >= '#createodbcdate(dtFormatDate)#'
AND a.rec_time_str < '#createodbcdate(dtFormatDatePlus1)#'

</CFQUERY>

either use createodbcdate or createodbcdatetime, should be a date formatting problem

Yoq, I figured out the problem. It's CF Studio trying to think for me. The code is correct and it runs. Points are yours for your time.
