Hi Experts,

Can anyone figure out whats wrong with my query below? Im using mySQL database in vb 6.0

SELECT schedule_info1.*, Format([SCH_startdate],"mm/dd/yyyy") AS Expr1
FROM schedule_info1
WHERE (((Format([SCH_startdate],"mm/dd/yyyy"))=#08/12/2004#));

The compiler is telling that there is an error in SQL syntax.

Thanks in advance

I'm not at all familiar with mySQL I've only used Oracle and Access but I'd try the following:

Do you need that semi-colon at the end of the SQL?
Does the Format statement work with mySQL as it's also a VB function?
Instead of
WHERE (((Format([SCH_startdate],"mm/dd/yyyy"))=#08/12/2004#));
shouldnt' it read
WHERE Format([SCH_startdate],"mm/dd/yyyy") = "08/12/2004"
WHERE SCH_startdate = "#08/12/2004#"

Thanks for the quick reply, Im also beginning to learn mySQL and its really a hard time for us using ACESS , Oracle finding this stuff with big difference, its slightly differs to SQL Server also. . :-(

Researching for the solution, I.ve found this page :

Realizing that if I'd stick with my code above, I will never ever find the solution for its quite very far.

I ended up with this query and its working fine now and be able to combine another criteria for time too.
cause the [SCH_startdate] field  format is mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss AM/PM

 cSQL = "SELECT schedule_info.* From schedule_info " & _
             "WHERE DATE_FORMAT(SCH_startdate,'%m/%d/%Y') ='" & Date & "' " & _
             "AND DATE_FORMAT(SCH_startdate,'%r') ='" & Time & "' "

Thanks a lot
