Hey Guys and Gals,
I am having an issue with an SQL string.  I am trying to pull some results from my MySQL database that will be between a set of dates given by the user.

I have attached my SQL string...

Also, the date field in my MySQL DB is a DATE field, not a DATETIME.

Any help would be appreciated!
"SELECT cancelStatus, orderDate, delTelephone, invTelephone, orderDate, invName, emailaddress, ordertotal, ocCusEmail FROM malsinfo WHERE ocCusEmail = '" & sessionName & "' AND orderDate BETWEEN  = " & startDate & " AND " & endDate & ""

It looks like you are missing ' (single quotes)

 "SELECT cancelStatus, orderDate, delTelephone, invTelephone, orderDate, invName, emailaddress, ordertotal, ocCusEmail FROM malsinfo WHERE ocCusEmail = '" & sessionName & "' AND orderDate BETWEEN  = '" & startDate & "'  AND  '" & endDate & "' "

Thanks for the advice sammy, I actually started with the single quotes but removed them to see if that was the problem.

I am still getting the same error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '= '2010-09-01' AND '2010-09-07'' at line 1

hi Slim81

The error is correct because there is a "=" near between. Please remove it.

It should be this:

"SELECT cancelStatus, orderDate, delTelephone, invTelephone, orderDate, invName, emailaddress, ordertotal, ocCusEmail FROM malsinfo WHERE ocCusEmail = '" & sessionName & "' AND orderDate BETWEEN  '" & startDate & "'  AND  '" & endDate & "' "
