I have a date prompt on my prompt page that accepts a start date and end date for a period to search.  Normally I've used syntax like this:

between ?start_date? and ?end_date?

But this doesn't work for this date field.  The date requires a syntax like this:

[Referral_Date] in_range{2009-04-01 00:00:00.000:2009-04-30 23:59:59.999}

This will make it work, but I don't know how to make my date prompt pass the date like this?

Assuming you need/want to use two date prompts, I'd use something like:
[Referral_Date] > ?StartDate? and [Referral_Date] < ?EndDate?

Altneratviely, you can use a "Date Range Prompt" instead of a "Date Prompt", and use
[Referral_Date] in range ?DateRange?

Create a calculated column which displays the date as a date, not a datetime and use this for the prompt. Function - datetime-to-date.
