Dear Sir,

I have a big problem, I am using MySQL and i have about 500 or more data.
All I want is to take the first and the last Receipt number from the database based on the date entered.
Example, if there are 200 records i want OR001 and OR200 information to be displayed.
Please help on the matter, really lost.
Thanks a million

Regards
Muraly

this should do:
SELECT * FROM yourtable ORDER BY date_entered ASC LIMIT 1
UNION ALL
SELECT * FROM yourtable ORDER BY date_entered DESC LIMIT 1

Maybe something like this:
---
SELECT MIN(your_receipt_no_col), MAX(your_receipt_no_col) WHERE your_date_col = "2008-09-30";
---

If not, we'd appreciate more details...

Dear Sir,

Sorry for the late reply, my computer and internet provider was down
Below is the error message i got when i run in the MySQL 5.0.
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE `INV_DATE` = '2008-09-30'' at line 1
Below is the SQL statement i use, i have changed the based on my table
SELECT MIN(`INV_NO`), MAX(`INV_NO`) WHERE `INV_DATE` = '2008-09-30'
I have check so many times on the syntax and cannot pin point the mistake.
Please help me on the matter
Thanks a million
