I have a datetime field in a clientdataset which I have added an index to but when I attempt to apply cliendataset.setrange([mystartdate],[myenddate]) it results in no records.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

Have tried out setting range on date fields without any problem:

ClientDataSet1.IndexFieldNames:='EXPIRY_DATE';               //a date field from an Oracle table
ClientDataSet1.SetRange([StrToDateTime('01.01.1999')],
                                            [StrToDateTime('31.12.2001')]);

Are you sure your range matches any records in your indexed table?

Can you please post part of your code?
