   s:='HOSPITAL='''+IntToStr(ComboBox1.ItemIndex)+'''';
    s:= s + ' and DATA >='''+ DateToStr(StartD.Date) + ''' and DATA <='''+ DateToStr( EndD.Date)+''' ';
    Table1.Filter := s;

Using upside code I get a filtering just after day, but I wish to filter by day, month and year. Where I wrong ?

if StartD.Date and EndD.Date are results from TDateTimePickers,
then there is a timefragment included

try following change


    s:= s + ' and DATA >='''+ DateToStr(Trunc(StartD.Date)) + ''' and DATA <='''+ DateToStr(trunc(( EndD.Date))+''' ';

on the other hand, datecompares are also pending on regional settings

Hi,

What is the type of your DATA field - date or string? In both cases I would recommend FormatDateTime('your database date format', StartD.Date) instead of DateToStr.

Geo is correct FomatDate is a much stronger solution.

Otherwise with some date types you can end up with long dates like “2003-07-16 02:21:45.192” which do not evaluate as expected.


Excerpt
        QueryString := 'where LOGINDATE >= ' + #39 + FormatDateTime('mm/dd/yyyy', (Date - 185)) + #39 +
          ' and LOGINDATE <= ' + #39 + FormatDateTime('mm/dd/yyyy', (Date + 185)) + #39
