autofill a parameter

Richard Teasdale
Last Modified: 2014-05-20
I run a  parameterised query which prompts for a month (as an integer), then returns all sales orders from a MSSQL database for the month selected. I would like this to run at night - a nice backup position - but puzzling over how to get a parameter to 'autofill' with the current month. I use the foxpro 9 views and queries, and guess I will have to convert to writing the SQL code 'straight in'   to the method on the form, and unsure of both how to do it, and how to  insert the month into the parameter. Is this something that can be done?
