Hey there Experts

I have a SQL query that fills a record set and then displays the result in a text box but the query is not working the syntax I think is right but the record set does not get filled.

Here is the code

Dim sqlstring As String
Dim myRS As New ADODB.Recordset

Set myConnection = New ADODB.Connection
myConnection.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0;data source=" & App.Path & "\Database\Database.mdb" & ";"

myRS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE TREAT.DATE BETWEEN " & CDate(CustomStartDate) & " AND " & CDate(CustomEndDate) & ""
Set myRS = myConnection.Execute(sqlstring)

       
        Do Until myRS.EOF
        If IsNull(myRS!Street2) = True Then
        txtResults.SelText = myRS!CFIRST + " " + myRS!CSURNAME + " " + myRS!Street + vbCrLf
        Else
        txtResults.SelText = myRS!CFIRST + " " + myRS!CSURNAME + " " + myRS!Street + " " + myRS!Street2 + vbCrLf
        End If
        myRS.MoveNext
        Loop
       
 myRS.Close

Thanks

try using hashes

sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE TREAT.DATE BETWEEN #" & CDate(CustomStartDate) & "# AND #" & CDate(CustomEndDate) & "#"

other way is to use format

sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE Format(TREAT.DATE,'YYYYMMDD') BETWEEN " & Format(CDate(CustomStartDate),"YYYYMMDD") & " AND " & Format(CDate(CustomEndDate),"YYYYMMDD")

sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE Format(TREAT.DATE,'YYYYMMDD') >= " & Format(CDate(CustomStartDate),"YYYYMMDD") & " AND Format(TREAT.DATE,'YYYYMMDD')  <= " & Format(CDate(CustomEndDate),"YYYYMMDD")

hey rockiroads

The code you gave me is just displaying the whole client table multiple times.

What I need the SQL query to do is to take the customstartdate and the customenddate and search the client and treat table and findout what clients have visited the shop within the dates specified

ok, what links the client and the treat table?
u need to perform the join

SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2
FROM CLIENT, TREAT
WHERE CLIENT.somefeld = TREAT.somefield


then u do the filter on the TREAT date
use the filter that worked for u, but dont start with WHERE, put a AND as we already have a WHERE

So would the query be

sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2,MAX(TREAT.DATE) FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE CLIENT.CCODE = TREAT.CCODE AND TREAT.DATE BETWEEN #" & CDate(CustomStartDate) & "# AND #" & CDate(CustomEndDate) & GROUP BY CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 "

Ok I have made my query but it does not fill the recordset

sqlstring = "SELECT CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2 FROM CLIENT, TREAT WHERE CLIENT.CCODE = TREAT.CCODE AND TREAT.DATE >= " & CDate(CustomStartDate) & " AND TREAT.DATE <= " & CDate(CustomEndDate) & " GROUP BY CLIENT.CSURNAME,CLIENT.CFIRST,CLIENT.STREET,CLIENT.STREET2"

I should really concentrate more!
I didnt notice how u opened the recordset, yours is incorrect, .Execute is used for action queries like insert/delete
for select's u need to use Open
eg

    Dim sqlstring As String
    Dim myConnection As ADODB.Connection
    Dim myRS As New ADODB.Recordset
   
    Set myConnection = New ADODB.Connection
    myConnection.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0;data source=" & app.Path & "\Database\Database.mdb" & ";"
   
    sqlstring = "YOUR FAVOURED SQL STRING HERE"

'SETUP RECORDSET    
    myRS.CursorType = adOpenKeyset
    myRS.LockType = adLockPessimistic
    myRS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    myRS.Open sqlstring
   
'WHY ARE U USING selText FOR
    Do Until myRS.EOF
        If IsNull(myRS!Street2) = True Then
            txtResults.SelText = myRS!CFIRST + " " + myRS!CSURNAME + " " + myRS!Street + vbCrLf
        Else
            txtResults.SelText = myRS!CFIRST + " " + myRS!CSURNAME + " " + myRS!Street + " " + myRS!Street2 + vbCrLf
        End If
        myRS.MoveNext
    Loop
   
    myRS.Close
    Set myRS = Nothing

You may want to double check this.  There is nothing wrong with using Execute to return a recordset.  In fact, providing a firehose (forward-only, read-only) cursor can be used it will give you the best performance.

Sorry mate, I stopped using EE for a short while then had a massive catch up.

Regarding this error, I forgot to add the connection object to when u open the recordset


it should be

    myRS.Open sqlstring, myConnection
