Date problem in Firebird

Hi, I have a problem using dates in Firebird.
       T1:= StrToDate(MaskEdit3.Text);
       T2:= StrToDate(MaskEdit4.Text);

                  SQL.Text:= 'SELECT SUM(BEDRAGTOTAAL) AS SOM1 FROM KASSAVERKOPEN ' +
                             'WHERE ((FACTUURDATUM BETWEEN :pNu AND :pNi) ' +
                             'AND (KLANTID = :pKLANTID) AND (VOLDAAN = 1))';
                  ParamByName('pNu').AsDate:= T1;
                  ParamByName('pNi').AsDate:= T2;
                  ParamByName('pKLANTID').AsDate:= Temp1query1.FieldByName('KLANTID').AsInteger;;

Open in new window

I get an error when  (FACTUURDATUM BETWEEN :pNu AND :pNi) --> conversion error -303
"1899-12-31"

I tried tot use CAST, but the result is the same. What might be the problem here ?

thx
Mario

firebird doesn't like the format of the date string, is FACTUURDATUM a timestamp my any chance

No , Date

       with Distinctfactuurklantidquery do begin
        Close;
         SQL.Text:= 'SELECT DISTINCT KLANTID FROM FACTUUR ' +
                    'WHERE ((VOLDAAN = 1) AND (FACTUURDATUM BETWEEN BETWEEN :pNu AND :pNi))';
         ParamByName('pNu').AsDate:= T1;
         ParamByName('pNi').AsDate:= T2;
        Open;
        First;
       end;

this query for instance works fine; strange .....

Sorry, I see now that I made an error

ParamByName('pKLANTID').AsDate:= Temp1query1.FieldByName('KLANTID').AsInteger;

Should be:   ParamByName('pKLANTID').AsInteger:= Temp1query1.FieldByName('KLANTID').AsInteger;;

if you replace the variables with hard-coded values does it work then, try several different formats and dates and post the results

Nick, it works now, I coded: ParamByName('pKLANTID').AsDate, should be: ASINTEGER

so basically wrong error message

btw: seems wierd you are selecting based on primary key (I assume pklandid) and other criteria at the same time

So, this is solved. But just for info about formatting in firebird:

Although we can use:
ParamByName('....').AsDate ...
I prefer to use "native" string formatting in code and concatenate into sql string.
