Hi

I have to populate a DataGridView with a SQL View that has two parameters
The View looks as follows:
Select * From View1 Where Date BETWEEN (@StartDate) AND (@EndDate)

How would I do this in VB.net if I had the following two variables
oStartDate = "12/12/12" and end date = "12/12/13"

Thanks

here an example:

Dim strSQLconnection As String = "Data Source=dbServer;Initial Catalog=testDB;Integrated Security=True"
Dim sqlConnection As New SqlConnection(strSQLconnection)
Dim sqlCommand As New SqlCommand(string.Format("select * from View1 where Date between {0} and {1}", oStartDate ,oEndDate  ), sqlConnection)
sqlConnection.Open()

Dim reader As SqlDataReader = sqlCommand.ExecuteReader()

DataGridView1.DataSource = reader
DataGridView1.DataBind()

Open in new window

PLEASE be careful here...

BETWEEN "12/12/12" and  "12/12/13"
is not exactly one year!

THE safest and most reliable method in sql for an accurate date range is a combination of >= with <
like this

Dim sqlCommand As New SqlCommand(string.Format("select * from View1 where Date >= {0} and Date < {1}", oStartDate ,oEndDate  ), sqlConnection)
