Worked in Access, but not in MySQL

Hi

Can anyone tell me why this worked using Access, but doesn't when using MySQL?

<cfset currentDate = CreateODBCDate(Now())>

<cfquery name="bulletinBoard" datasource="intranet2">
SELECT *
FROM MAIN
WHERE (CATEGORY = 'Bulletin Board' AND SUBMITTED >= #currentDate-90#)
ORDER BY SUBMITTED DESC, ID DESC</cfquery>

This is supposed to return all of the entries within the database from the Bulletin Board in the last 90 days.

Cheers
Nick

try this
<cfset currentDate = CreateODBCDate(Now())>
<cfset submitteddate = dateadd('d',currentDate,-90)>

SELECT *
FROM MAIN
WHERE (CATEGORY = 'Bulletin Board' AND SUBMITTED >= #CreateOdbcDateTime(submitteddate)#)
ORDER BY SUBMITTED DESC, ID DESC

much better way would be to use cfqueryparam

SELECT *
FROM MAIN
WHERE CATEGORY = <CFQUERYPARAM      CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_varchar" VALUE="Bulletin Board">
            AND SUBMITTED >= <CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_date" VALUE="#submitteddate#">
ORDER BY SUBMITTED DESC, ID DESC

Thanks very much Hart.

Would you advise using cfqueryparam on every query?
