what is the value on datum_val1 and datum_val2. Is it included the ".", if not it cause the problem

to_date('01.03.1990','DD.MM.YYYY') then no prpblem

to_date('01031990','DD.MM.YYYY') it will return error

Ok I found wghere the problem was. I had to change Me.DateTimePicker2.Value.ToString
into Me.DateTimePicker2.Text and it works OK...
Also, :datum_val should be changed in ? in statement....
Anyway thank you for your time and effort...
