I'm not sure about the component you are using by I always do this..


var MyDate:String;
begin
MyDate := '2004-08-09';
SQL := 'select * from database where mydate = '+QuotedStr(MyDate);
//execute query
end;

You can also get the date from a TDateTime type by: MyDate := FormatDateTime('yyyy-mm-dd',now);

Use a parameterised query...

SQL := 'select * from Whatever where MyDate = :MyDate';

Then assign the parameter to the query by using the Parameters property of your Query component. Exactly how is based upon how you're using the Query component. If you assign the query in design-time, you can also create the parameters in designtime. If you assign the query in runtime, you must fill the parameters property too in runtime, after assigning the query...

Hello,

The mySQL date format is YYYY-MM-DD

so i've making a little function for convert TDate to YYYY-MM-DD

====================================================
function dateToSQLDate(Date: TDate): string;
var Day, Month, Year: word;
begin
   DecodeDate(Date, Year, Month, Day);
   result := IntToStr(Year) + '-' + IntToStr(Month) + '-' + IntToStr(Day);
end;
====================================================

after you can execute your query like this :

myQuery.close;
myQuery.paramByName('myDate').asString := dateToSQLDate(Now);
myQuery.open{ or execSQL };


I hope that will help you ;-)

You can also simply call

  FormatDateTime('yyyy-mm-dd hh:nn:ss',Now)

qry.sql.add('Select * from Table where MyDate=:MyDate');
qry.parameterbyname('Mydate').asdatetime:=TheDate; // you can use "NOW"
qry.open;
