I wanted to see if there was a record already in the timein row that matched the current date and the employeeid.  I realized I have my logic messed up.  Thanks for your help

objCmd.CommandText = "select recordid from employeehours where employeeid = '" & stremployeeid & "' and timein =  & CONVERT(datetime, '" & Date.Today  & "', 102)"

I am not good on VB,

objCmd.CommandText = "select recordid from employeehours where employeeid = '" & stremployeeid & "' and CONVERT(varchar(8),timein,112) =  & CONVERT(datetime, '" & Date.Today  & "', 112)"

try:

objCmd.CommandText = "select recordid from employeehours where employeeid = '" & stremployeeid & "' and datediff(dd,timein,  GETDATE())=0"
---employeeid is integer or string
or if int:
objCmd.CommandText = "select recordid from employeehours where employeeid = " & stremployeeid & " and datediff(dd,timein,  GETDATE())=0"

time  is stored in the database as date and time.  I only want to compare the date 7/11/2006 10:00 AM .  I have a record in the database that matches but I keep getting no records returned.

Thanks

Did you look to see the parameters you are actually passing in?  Maybe stremployeeid is empty.

Try running a simple SQL to make sure its not a VB issue:

objCmd.CommandText = "select COUNT(recordid) from employeehours where employeeid = " & stremployeeid
