Hello,

I am running the following code within vb and I get a "Type Mismatch" Error.

I want to select only records from the database with todays date.

Thanks for any assistance.
' Set Today's Date
                Dim todaysDate As String
                todaysDate = Day(Now) & "/" & Month(Now) & "/" & Year(Now) & " " & Hour(Now) & ":" & Minute(Now) & ":" & Second(Now)
 
' Do the query
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT logs.log_ID, logs.UserLoginName, logs.UserEmail, logs.LogText, logs.OpenClosed, logs.UserFullName, logs.logType From logs WHERE (((logs.AssignedName)='" & theName & "')) AND logs.OpenClosed = '1' AND logs.EstimatedCompletion <= '" & todaysDate & "' ORDER BY logs.EstimatedCompletion ASC")

Open in new window

Which database are you using ?

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT logs.log_ID, logs.UserLoginName, logs.UserEmail, logs.LogText, logs.OpenClosed, logs.UserFullName, logs.logType From logs WHERE (((logs.AssignedName)='" & theName & "')) AND logs.OpenClosed = '1' AND logs.EstimatedCompletion <= getdate() ORDER BY logs.EstimatedCompletion ASC")

I looked up access date functions and Date() works great.

Thanks for your help =)

Just the Date() function works a treat.

Thanks =)
