Stored procedure to update date

I created a simple stored procedure to update the date in which an email goes out. I am just not sure the syntax to have the date be 'today's date / time'

This is my code at the moment:


Dim sp_updatepassdate__UserLoginId
sp_updatepassdate__UserLoginId = "0"
if(Request("UserLoginId") <> "") then sp_updatepassdate__UserLoginId = Request("UserLoginId")

Dim sp_updatepassdate__Passwordemailon
sp_updatepassdate__Passwordemailon = "01/01/2050"
if(today() <> "") then sp_updatepassdate__Passwordemailon = today()



set sp_updatepassdate = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
sp_updatepassdate.ActiveConnection = MM_bluedot_STRING
sp_updatepassdate.CommandText = "dbo.Updatepasswdemailedate"
sp_updatepassdate.CommandType = 4
sp_updatepassdate.CommandTimeout = 0
sp_updatepassdate.Prepared = true
sp_updatepassdate.Parameters.Append sp_updatepassdate.CreateParameter("@RETURN_VALUE", 3, 4)
sp_updatepassdate.Parameters.Append sp_updatepassdate.CreateParameter("@UserLoginId", 3, 1,4,sp_updatepassdate__UserLoginId)
sp_updatepassdate.Parameters.Append sp_updatepassdate.CreateParameter("@Passwordemailon", 135, 1,4,sp_updatepassdate__Passwordemailon)


Open in new window

Line 9 shows where I enter the value:

if(today() <> "") then sp_updatepassdate__Passwordemailon = today()

I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime  error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'today'

ASP uses "Date" for the current date.
ASP uses "Now" for the current date & time.
ASP uses "Time" for the current time.

The mismatch is from comparing a string ""  to a datetype today().
