I have a date and time value (String) that looks like this:

02/01/2005 08:49:04
I would like to display only field DateValue (TICKETDATE [1 to 10] in {?receivedDate} to {?EndDate} and it keeps bringing back an error DateRange required over {?ReceivedDate} and {?EndDate}

I would like the display to show dates begining 10/01/2008 - 03/31/2009

Please Help

There is no type like that.
So is one of them a string abd the other a datetime?

If so you will have to convert the sting to a date also

Your formula seems to be doing that.  You may need to convert one of the parameters also in the same way.

Let me explain better.  The database field is in a datetime format 02/01/2005 08:49:04 format.  I would like to pull a select criteria for it to look for records, TICKETDATE >= '10/01/2008" TO TICKETDATE <= '03/31/2009'

It displays an error message "Bad Date Format".  When I try --> DateTimeValue {TICKETDATE} [1 TO 10]), It again states that I have a bad date format.  Please Heeelp.  What am I doing wrong.  The field TICKDATE is a string.

If you are hardcoding try this
Your ticket date is a date or datetime filed not a string
Date({TicketDate}) IN Date(2008,10,01) to Date(2009,3,31)

If you are using parameters make the start and end date DATE type and use
Date({TicketDate}) IN {?startdate} to {?enddate}

If ticketdate is a string then
Date(Val(Mid({TicketDate},7,4),Val(Mid({TicketDate},1,2),Val(Mid({TicketDate},4,2))  IN Date(2008,10,01) to Date(2009,3,31)

Thank you sooooo much this one worked for me... Date({TicketDate}) IN Date(2008,10,01) to Date(2009,3,31).  Did I explain it incorrectly the first time?  You got it on the first try.....
