And if you run the same statement in query analyser?
Also, when using dates in string format, consider passing them in as YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS - this will consistently work with ALL regional settings as it is ISO comp,iant.

Hi mosArt,

have you tried :
    string commandStr2 = "Select  *  From [Items] Where [ItemTypeID] = 1 AND [ItemStartDate] between '2004/11/12' and '2007/12/12'";


Cheers!
