filtering on a date field in Access using VB6

9 New Member
Hi all,

I am having trouble with VB6 (running in windows7) talking to an Access database, and was hoping someone
could help me locate the error.

the database contains a "DateIn" field of type "Date" (short Date)
I am reading the table into a recordset called "rsDiv"

I am trying to read only records for the financial year, between [1 Jul (name the year)] to [30 Jun] the next year.

my code is as follows.....

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.    FY = InputBox("Financial Year starting:-  Jul, ", "Enter Financial Year")
  2.    st = "DateIn > '30/06/" & CStr(FY) & "' and DateIn < '1/07/" & CStr(FY + 1) & "'"
  3.    rsDiv.Filter = st
I have tried using CDate(construct ed date), CStr(DateIn), even #constructed date#.
so far, the filter allows all records through.

any sugggestions, apart from "give it away" will be appreciated.

Many thanks

Thank you both. The BETWEEN syntax works fine as part of a SQL statement, but in VB6 (using DAO), it doesn't seem to be accepted as part of a Filter.
Anyway, I have resolved it to my satisfaction now, and once again, thanks for your input and thought provoking ideas.

I have inherited a table where date information was saved from PHP as a VARCHAR. (Sigh.) This means that the so-called date fields look like this : August 1, 2005, 9:09 am EDT October 13, 2004, 12:28 pm EDT This makes them essentially useless for sorting and logical evaluation. Understandbly, the MySQL date functions don't seem able to convert the field to a "real" date field. This yields a blank (or maybe null) "realdate" :

I have a process that exports an Access table to a comma-delimited text file. One of the fields that is exported shows the date it was exported, using the Date() function. In the Access table, the date appears in the records in mm/dd/yyyy format, but after exporting, the date appears as mm/dd/yyyy 0:00:00. For example, today is 11/06/2003. It shows 11/06/03 in the Access table, but the exported text file shows 11/6/03 0:00:00. I thought...

I am setting up a database for a friend who's an Optician, using MS Access 2002. All seems to be working well, but I have hit a snag.

For reminder letters, I need to have a query which allows me to select a subsection of dates between dd/mm/yyyy...

Howdy All, I have a query that is used for filtering results to be used in a combo box. The query needs to test fields from both a table and then unbound text boxes on the form that also contains the combo box.

I have written an IIF statement and placed it within the Criteria section of the Date field that I am trying to filter by. The current IIF statement works...

I'm trying to filter the records on the mainform (MailingList) of my database using a field contained in a subform (Donations).

However, now I'm trying to filter by date instead of by a string or a number, and I'm getting nowhere. My goal is to have users type a date into the unbound combo box and...

Okay... I've created a drop down list fed by a table. I want my users to select an item in the list, say `Awaiting Repairs`, then fill in a single date text field. When a command button is pressed Access takes this date and fills in one of six disabled text boxes below (ie the one relating to the item in the list). I can do this for one item in the list, but I can't get Access to recognise the change of item in the list box - say to...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
