In one ASP.NET page, I have to use below value for the min value and max value for searching the results. The reason is the different min value and max value in ASP.NET and in SQL Server. I know it's stupid, but when I used: string MinValue = "12/12/1800"; string MaxValue = "12/12/2050"
in both asp page and the stored procedure, the search function works. But what is the better way (for sure there is) to replace the '12/12/1800', etc. in both asp page and stored procedure and will for sure WORK? Thanks.

#1: search.aspx:
public static DataTable GetSearchResults(string StartDateFrom,string StartDateTo,)
      string MinValue = "12/12/1800";
      string MaxValue = "12/12/2050";
      comm.CommandText = "GetSearchResults";

      if (StartDateFrom == "" & StartDateTo == "")
      {
          StartDateFrom = Convert.ToDateTime(MinValue).ToString();
          StartDateTo = Convert.ToDateTime(MaxValue).ToString();
      }

      param = comm.CreateParameter();
      param.ParameterName = "@StartDateFrom";
      param.Value = StartDateFrom;
      param.DbType = DbType.DateTime;
      comm.Parameters.Add(param);

...
     return GenericDataAccess.ExecuteSelectCommand(comm);        

#2  Stored procedure detail (called in #1):

...
CREATE PROCEDURE GetSearchResultsFiltered    
@StartDateFrom datetime,                  
@StartDateTo datetime
...
AS
DECLARE @MinValue DATETIME    
DECLARE @MaxValue DATETIME    
SET @MinValue = '12/12/1800'    
SET @MaxValue = '12/12/2050'    

IF (@StartDateFrom = @MinValue and @StartDateTo = @MaxValue)    
BEGIN    
SET @StartDateFrom = null    
SET @StartDateTo = null    
END    

select * from ...
where ...
AND ((@StartDateFrom is null) OR (StartDate > @StartDateFrom - 1))      
AND ((@StartDateTo is null) OR (StartDate < @StartDateTo + 1))

and
DateTime.MaxValue
