I am trying to query into the rscheckuser return. What I am trying to do is only print records that are between 5 days back or 3 days ahead.
<%
dateth = DateAdd("d",3,Date())
dateba = Dateadd("d",-5,date())
%>
<%if rsCheckUser("Date") >= dateth then
=rsCheckUser("Date01") else%>

How would I write that.

Well for starters your code should look more like this:

<%
dateth = DateAdd("d",3,Date())
dateba = Dateadd("d",-5,date())
%>

<%
if rsCheckUser("Date") >= dateth And rsCheckUser("Date") <= dateba then
    'do whatever
else
    'do whatever
end if
%>

You may need to use "cdate(rsCheckUser("Date"))"

secondly it depends on if you only need to process data between those two dates. If so, then you should modify your SQL string to only retrieve the data you want.

I agree with hth.  The best place to pull this is via the SQL string.  Only pull the data you want.

Hi

First of all you should not get all the records into the recordset and check if the date is with in the range or not as it consumes more resource and time if the number of records are more.

itz very simple. You can put the condition in the WHERE clause of the SELECT statement as follows

WHERE CONVERT(VARCHAR,datecolumn,112) >= CONVERT(VARCHAR,(Dateadd("d",-5,date())),112) AND  CONVERT(VARCHAR,datecolumn,112) <=  CONVERT(VARCHAR,(Dateadd("d",3,date())),112)


This will give you the best result at any condition

Sara, what you have just explained is the SQL string that pkaleda and myself have already recommended as a side note to the actual question asked.

Your welcome to join in the thread, but I wasn't sure if you realised this was the case as you didn't mention it.

This SQL also works if you require an SQL solution...
 
SELECT * FROM yourtable
WHERE (Date >= cdate('" & dateth & "')) AND (Date <= cdate('" & dateba & "'))
 
Now I know you said you only wanted to "print" the information between these dates, so don't use this method (or Sara's) if your process needs to access data outside your printed date range. If this is the case then I am sorry if we confused the situation.

Going back to the question.... here is the solution as eteran wanted...

> I am trying to query into the rscheckuser return. What I am trying to do is only print records that are between 5 days back
> or 3 days ahead.
<%
dateth = DateAdd("d",3,Date())
dateba = Dateadd("d",-5,date())
%>
<%
if rsCheckUser("Date") >= dateth And rsCheckUser("Date") <= dateba then      ' from m8rix's solution
     ' =rsCheckUser("Date01")                                                <<< I think this is incorrect. (hence commented out)
     response.write rsCheckUser("Date01")                             ' << is correct (are u sure the field is called Date01?)
end if
%>

I dont think u can substitute "=" for "response.write" all the time

My 2 cents,
:) SD

Hi eteran,

The query that i posted will conver the date into the format of YYYYMMDD and compare with the date range.

For example if there is a date as 10/10/2003 and the from and the to range is 01/10/2003 to 31/10/2003 Then the Query comparision will be

WHERE '20041010' >= '20041001' AND '20041010' <= '20041031'

Understood?
