Where are you getting the error ?
If it is on this line
<<rsspl.Open "select resid from tbl_onlinespecialmaster group by resid where enddate < "&str&" ",con,3,3>>
You need to change it to
rsspl.Open "select resid from tbl_onlinespecialmaster group by resid where enddate <= '"&str&"' ",con,3,3

Added the = and a single quote aroung the date
