Problem with delete SQL based on medium date type.

Using MS Access 2007 I have the following delete SQL:

strDelete = "DELETE * FROM tblContractorSummary WHERE cn_hauldate < #" & Me!txtStart & "# AND cn_hauldate > #" & Me!txtEnd & "#;"
db.Execute (strDelete)

Open in new window


No error is thrown but no records get deleted either.

Where did I go wrong?

Thanks

This is correct. Cause your WHERE clause is (semantically) a contradiction. Thus always false.

You do a range check. Your condition requires that the same value is lesser then a test value and greater then a second test value.

As we can assume that txtStart <= txtEnd the result is always false.
