I am trying to compare a date with another date.  Unfortunately, I am not being able to get a match even though they should.  The date is created with the Now() function placed in a database in a datetime field.  Then I get it from the database with myStructure.DateTime = CDate(record("ReminderDateTime")).  Below is output from the immediate window.  Any Ideas?

?st.DateTime.CompareTo(st2.DateTime)
-1

?st.DateTime
#11/11/2006 3:35:28 PM#

?st2.DateTime
#11/11/2006 3:35:28 PM#

?st.DateTime = st2.DateTime
False

The values differ - probably only by a millisecond, but they differ. What do you get if you look at the millisecond value of these two? st1.Millisecond and st2.Millisecond?

I wasn't thinking about that.  I decided to use Now.ToString to assign the date.  I am not concerned with that much precision so it will work fine.

OK, I have to ask. Why the B Grade?

While you pointed me in the right direction you didn't actually solve the issue.

Strictly speaking, your question was why they differed, not how to force them to be equal, but don't worry about it - I can live with a B.
