SELECT DISTINCT fldHistoSItemsDate, fldHistoSItemsHeure, fldHistoSItemsEmp
FROM         [Histo - SItems]
WHERE     (fldHistoSItemsSaisie = 144)
ORDER BY fldHistoSItemsDate, fldHistoSItemsHeure



This request returns me 4 result in VB6 but 1300 in SQL Manager... any idea ? not the same format but same value.

In vb I would get it to output the exact query that is being run, then copy that to sql manager and try it.

You may need to address the specific database, also the distinct keyword may be causing you problems.  It should however be behaving the same if the exact same query is sent to it.

can you show us the relevant VB code?
what is the table structure?


like Raynard indicates, the issue might the distinct with the datetime fields, which due to different formatting, might do different results.
you might then have to apply the convert() function around them to force the same output, like:

SELECT DISTINCT convert(varchar(10), fldHistoSItemsDate, 120) as fldHistoSItemsDate#
, convert(varchar(10), fldHistoSItemsHeure, 8) as fldHistoSItemsHeure , fldHistoSItemsEmp
FROM         [Histo - SItems]
WHERE     (fldHistoSItemsSaisie = 144)
ORDER BY 1, 2

I think that you should ask to have your grade re-marked, if none of these solutions gave you your answer then you should have indicated as such - C's should only rarely / if ever be given - read the help files if you are unsure

Additionally since navstar's answer was just agreeing with AngelIII's answer he should be given some of the credit.
