On button click i get error near: where time > 2004.08.02 14NULL

procedure TForm8.RadioButton1Click(Sender: TObject); //ESANTYS
begin
RadioButton1.Checked := True;
AdoQuery1.SQL.Clear;
AdoQuery1.SQL.Add('Select id, time from esantys where time > 2004.08.02 14:00:00');

Try quotation mark first:

AdoQuery1.SQL.Add('Select id, time from esantys where time > ' + QuotedStr('2004.08.02 14:00:00'));

If it's MS Access then:

AdoQuery1.SQL.Add('Select id, time from esantys where time > CDate("' + '2004.08.02 14:00:00'  + '")');

Regards, Geo

Or better, let Borland do this with params

adoQuery1.SQL.add('Select id, time from esantys where time > :Param');
adoQuery1.paramByName('Param').AsDateTime := Date;

AdoQuery1.SQL.Add(QuotedStr(2004.08.02));

i always do it this way:
'select * from timetable where time > ' + IntToStr(Trunc(My Date Variable here...))

that way you treat the date variable as a numeric value. always works for me! and i got the tip from this forum too

remove the trunc if you want time values in addition. not just the date value
like this:
FloatToStr(My Date Value)
