I want to produce a report filtered by date range using microsofts report viewer

I have tried the following code which doesn't work. It returns an error saying incorrect number of parameters for CONVERT function.  I have used the label control to view the string passed to the filter expression and it looks correct.  Can anyone advise how to filter reportviewer reports by date range.

 protected void TextBox2_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
        Label20.Text = "[Date_SIF_Entered] > CONVERT(DATETIME," + TextBox1.Text + ",103) and [DATE_SIF_ENTERED] < CONVERT(DATETIME," + TextBox2.Text + ",103) ";
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterExpression = "[Date_SIF_Entered] > CONVERT(DATETIME," + TextBox1.Text + ",103) and [DATE_SIF_ENTERED] < CONVERT(DATETIME," + TextBox2.Text + ",103)";
        SifEntryReportByDateRange.LocalReport.Refresh();
    }

Remove quotes " around TextBox.Text in the convert function. It returns string already.

I have had a look at the link and I have come up with the following.

I have an objectdatassource with two parameters of type datetime, FromDate and ToDate.

The report produces a report showing all records when no values are  defined for the parameters.

I have two Textboxes to allow the dates to be entered Textbox1 and Textbox2

I have created the following event handler for the on Text_Changed event of Textbox2.  The labels are just to let me inspect what is happening

protected void TextBox2_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterExpression = "Date_SIF_Entered >= ' #{0}# ' and Date_SIF_Entered < ' #{1}#' ";
        Label20.Text = ObjectDataSource4.FilterExpression.ToString();
        Label21.Text = TextBox1.Text;
        Label22.Text = TextBox2.Text;
       
        /*SifEntryReportByDateRange.LocalReport.Refresh();*/
       
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterParameters["FromDate"].DefaultValue = TextBox1.Text;
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterParameters["ToDate"].DefaultValue = TextBox2.Text;
        //ObjectDataSource4.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments.Empty);
        SifEntryReportByDateRange.LocalReport.Refresh();
    }

This does not succeed in filtering the report.  Any help in working out why would be appreciated.

Abort that the above code works.  It requires the date in mm/dd/yyyy format though, which is not good.  I really need to=he date to be entered in dd/MM/yyyy format.

I have come up with the following for now.  Any further suggestions are welcome.  The date is entered as dd/mm/yyyy and then rearranged to US format mm/dd/yyyy

ObjectDataSource4.FilterExpression = "Date_SIF_Entered >= ' #{0}# ' and Date_SIF_Entered < ' #{1}#' ";
               
        String[] TempFromDate = TextBox1.Text.Split('/');        String[] TempToDate = TextBox2.Text.Split('/');
        String USToDate = TempToDate[1] + '/' + TempToDate[0] + '/' + TempToDate[2];  
       
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterParameters["FromDate"].DefaultValue = USFromDate;

        String USFromDate = TempFromDate[1] + '/' + TempFromDate[0] + '/' + TempFromDate[2];
           
        ObjectDataSource4.FilterParameters["ToDate"].DefaultValue = USToDate;
       
        SifEntryReportByDateRange.LocalReport.Refresh();
