what if you try this directly?

Set NextEvent=oConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM events e,locations,codes,event_sessions s WHERE event_code=code_short AND e.event_ID=s.event_ID AND event_location=location_ID AND event_live=TRUE AND session_date=> now() ")

>>or did you mean directly in the database?
yes... directly in db.. put the "Now()" into your sql statement as part of the string.

you can also do this and tell us what is generated?

SQLstr = "SELECT * FROM events e,locations,codes,event_sessions s WHERE event_code=code_short AND e.event_ID=s.event_ID AND event_location=location_ID AND event_live=TRUE AND session_date=> now() "
response.write SQLstr
response.end
Set NextEvent=oConn.Execute(SQLstr)

where you have

session_date=> now()

it should be session_date>= now()

notice it should be greater than or equal to, NOT equal to or greater than

For the time,  use the same format :

timeColumn >= timeParameter

Can you explain what you mean by "it didn't work"?  Otherwise it'll be impossible to narrow down the issue.

With that time column you try:

TimeColumn >= Time()

This will get all records after the current time.

Turning in for the night, good luck :)
