I am fairly new to ASP but have used this site and books to get a better understanding. However I want to show a range of dates for up and coming events but the date must be Today and onwards for 10 days. My date field are stored as Date_id, Event = Event_id and Location = Location_id. I use sql to call in the scripts. This may seem a stupidly basic question but I've tried so much I've given up.

Thanks

Hi lewis94,

Select * From MyTable Where DateDiff(day,GetDate(),Date_ID) <=10

For MSSQL

Or

Select * From MyTable Where DateDiff(day,Now(),Date_ID) <=10

For Access

Thanks for the quick response. It makes sense but I just got so tired of trying that I somehow managed to get into a tizzy and gave up.

Thanks again

I tried the script for the access database but keep getting an error. The SQL I use is as follows

<% sqlString = "Select * From fixtures Where DateDiff(date,now(),Date) <=10"
SET RS = oConn.Execute(sqlString)
WHILE NOT RS.EOF
%>

A colleague says it is because I use the RS method which is not suitable. Is this correct and if so how can I change it or is there a good book you could recommend?

Puzzled?????

lewis94,

With access it is:

DateDiff("d",now(),[Date])

It requires a slightly different syntax. My error as it was some ridiculous time in the morning for me when I posted that response.

Just in case any one else wanted to know the answer, after playing around ith the script I used the following;

SELECT * FROM FIXTURES WHERE [DATE] BETWEEN Date() AND Date()+10 ORDER BY [DATE] DESC

Thanks for all your help
