converting datetime to stop sql error?

HI:
I have a little delphi program interrogating an mssql database.
I have a calendar control but when I select a date I get a sql error "DateTime field overflow. Fractional second precision exceeds the scale specified in the parameter binding." Which I took to mean that I am trying to filter a date with a date time?
Attached sql query sets out what I think the issue is. field 'datet' in 'vvdates' is datetime. Field 'ordered' in 'goorders' is a date.
Having said all of that the program actually works on the PC on which I am writing the program. It fails on any other PC with the sql error as described. I have checked the ODBC links and BDE on all PC's and they look the same. Has anybody experience of this?
Thanks!

First of all I'd stop using odbc for MSSql. You could simply use ADO  to connect directly using the OS native engine

Anyway try using DateTimePicker.date instead of Datetimepicker.datetime.

Thanks for that. I tried date and got 'invalid date format message'. Will look at ADO.

Try this as well

Query1.ParamByName('SELDATE').AsSqlTimeStamp := DateTimeToSQLTimeStamp(DateTimePicker1.Date);

I do apologise.
I switched to Ado and then became distracted by a different issue.
Am awarding the points to sinisav as his solution works now.
