I dont' know why this is happening but I've declared a shared variable in my group header like:
shared dateVar myDate := Date(0,0,0);


Then in my details the same thing but when i do this:

myDate := (myTable.myDate);

Is says that
(myTable.myDate) isn't a date.

Verify the the datebase format and type.  It may be that in the database it is a DATETIME type

change to
DateTimeVar myDate := Date(0,0,0);

The field needs to be enclosed in curly braces instead of parenthesis.
Also, make sure that you redeclare the variable in the second formula:
One question for you, are you using a subreport to pass the variable to?  If not, a shared variable is overkill.  It wil still work, but it just takes extra resources.  You can use Global instead.

shared dateVar myDate := {myTable.myDate};

It was in curly braces... I just miss typed here.  
Thanks mlmcc that fixed it.
I also had:
myDate := Date({myTable.myDate});

and that worked as well.
