what database?
rajender123Author Commented:
I am using SQL  database and  i am using one table which has  one date column, namely sdate .

I   want the  values from one table   only

table has the following cols:-
file_name, sdate, client_no,name

Hi rajender123,

if you are using SQL Server, just give your dates as yyyy/mm/dd and it will work

sql="select  file_name from abc where sdate >= # " & format(text1.text,"mm/dd/yyyy")  &" # and sdate <= # " & format(text1.text,"mm/dd/yyyy")  &"#"

In SQL Server, this is the fail-proof method (assuming that the values of text1.text and text2.text are correctly entered as date values):
sql="select  file_name from abc where sdate between convert(datetime,'" & format(cdate(text1.text) , "YYYY-MM-DD") &"',120) and  convert(datetime,'" & format(cdate(text2.text), "YYYY-MM-DD") & "', 120)"
