SQL PROBLEMS

This SQL code below collects all my clocked in/out users and then opens a crystal report and shows my collected data.

The problem is if I put in a range of 01/04/2009 - 30/04/2009 it will give me dates for all the months in my database not just for the date range I want.
sql = "SELECT qCashierLog.CashierName, (SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 1 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate) AS [In], " & _
                  "(SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 2 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND (qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate OR qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate + 1)) AS Out, PayRate, EventDate, iif([In]>[Out], DateDiff('n',[In],[Out]), DateDiff('n',[In],[Out])) AS Hours FROM qCashierLog " & _
                  "INNER JOIN Cashier ON qCashierLog.CashierCode = Cashier.Code " & _
                  "WHERE EventType = 1 AND EventDate BETWEEN '" & Format(DateFrom.Value, "dd/MM/yyyy") & "' AND '" & Format(DateTo.Value, "dd/MM/yyyy") & "' ORDER BY EventDate"

Hello richard_gar,

That suggests that your EventDate column is using a [n][var]char data type.  Is this true?  If so, can you
switch to datetime or smalldatetime?

Regards,

Patrick

well the thing is the table I am getting the data from has the clock in/out times in one column and I split that into two colums for my application to read it correctly

Example: 20/03/2009 13:12:00

So I have created a query in my database that the SQL code calls and in the query I split the data in the table I am getting the data from into two columns by doing the following in my query in MS ACCESS

SELECT CashierLog.CashierCode, CashierLog.CashierName, CashierLog.EventType, CDate(Format([EventDateTime],'dd/mm/yyyy')) AS EventDate, Format([EventDateTime],'Short Time') AS EventTime
FROM CashierLog;

Hi,
If the type of the data columns in database is DateTime then try the following query.
sql = "SELECT qCashierLog.CashierName, (SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 1 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate) AS [In], " & _
                  "(SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 2 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND (qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate OR qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate + 1)) AS Out, PayRate, EventDate, iif([In]>[Out], DateDiff('n',[In],[Out]), DateDiff('n',[In],[Out])) AS Hours FROM qCashierLog " & _
                  "INNER JOIN Cashier ON qCashierLog.CashierCode = Cashier.Code " & _
                  "WHERE EventType = 1 AND EventDate BETWEEN Convert(DateTime, '" & DateFrom.Value & "', 103) AND Convert(DateTime, '" & DateTo.Value & "', 103) ORDER BY EventDate"

I think you are using SQL Server 2000. If so then try this
sql = "SELECT qCashierLog.CashierName, (SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 1 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate) AS [In], " & _
                  "(SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 2 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND (qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate OR qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate + 1)) AS Out, PayRate, EventDate, iif([In]>[Out], DateDiff('n',[In],[Out]), DateDiff('n',[In],[Out])) AS Hours FROM qCashierLog " & _
                  "INNER JOIN Cashier ON qCashierLog.CashierCode = Cashier.Code " & _
                  "WHERE EventType = 1 AND EventDate BETWEEN CDate'" & DateFrom.Value & "') AND CDate('" & DateTo.Value & "') ORDER BY EventDate"

I would have to guess you are not using MS SQL Server, but isntead are using MS Access.

Muhammad Ousama GhazaliSolution Analyst & ArchitectCommented:
If it is SQL Server 2000 (or above), our experience with date matching shows that you we have to customize the date values as follows:

Start Date
Format(DateFrom.Value, "yyyy-MM-dd 00:00:00")

End Date
Format(DateTo.Value, "yyyy-MM-dd 23:59:59")

Replace your original query with the above and see the result. Hope it helps.

Use the cdate function then.

I fixed the problem:
sql = "SELECT qCashierLog.CashierName, (SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 1 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate) AS [In], " & _
                  "(SELECT TOP 1 EventTime FROM qCashierLog qC WHERE qC.EventType = 2 AND qC.CashierCode = qCashierLog.CashierCode AND (qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate OR qC.EventDate = qCashierLog.EventDate + 1)) AS Out, PayRate, EventDate, iif([In]>[Out], 1440+DateDiff('n',[In],[Out]), DateDiff('n',[In],[Out])) AS Hours FROM qCashierLog " & _
                  "INNER JOIN Cashier ON qCashierLog.CashierCode = Cashier.Code " & _
                  "WHERE EventType = 1 AND EventDate >= #{0}# AND EventDate <= #{1}# ORDER BY EventDate"
            sql = String.Format(sql, Format(DateFrom.Value, "MM/dd/yyyy"), Format(DateTo.Value, "MM/dd/yyyy"))
