Date variable is a keyword so try giving some other name in ur database

He's right, in naming you database fields try to include tablename_[fieldname]. I encountered that issue before and that was the word PASSWORD, I did'nt know it is a reserved word.

Hi there! :) thanks for the reply

I try to change the param from '@date' to '@dtacc' but same error occurs...
