Hello Everyone,

it seems that I cannot see the wood for the trees.... :-)

I am having problems with this line of code...

StateSQL = "select * from petrol_table where fueldate >= " & "'" & M12S & "'" & " and fueldate < " & "'" & M12F & "'"

what I am trying to do is this

 StateSQL = "select * from petrol_table where fueldate >= '2013-12-16' and fueldate < '2013-12-22'"

The second line works, but the first line gives a conversion failed when converting date and/or time error.

Thanks for reading.

Edited 1 Year Ago by westsiderailway: adding full code

Try

StateSQL = "SELECT * FROM petrol_table " &
           " WHERE fueldate >= @sdate    &
           "   AND fueldate <  @edate"
Conn.Open()
sqlCmd = New SqlCommand(StateSQL, Conn)
sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@sdate", M12S)
sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@edate", M12F)

Do

StateSQL = "SELECT * FROM petrol_table " &
           " WHERE fueldate >= " & "'" & M12S & "'" & 
           "   AND fueldate <  " & "'" & M12F & "'"
Debug.WriteLine(StateSQL)

and post the output here.

Thanks Jim,

After doing some research, and some debuging(walking through the code) have found out the problem was with the format of the DateTimePicker.

it was in the format of 16/12/2013
when is was needed to be 20131216

SQL was being very picky about the date format.

found the answer here
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5792600/how-to-change-the-date-format-of-a-datetimepicker-in-vb-net

so I just changed the DateTimePicker to custom with this line

  Dim DTP1 As String = Me.DateTimePicker1.Value.ToString("yyyyMMdd")
            Dim DTP2 As String = Me.DateTimePicker2.Value.ToString("yyyyMMdd")

and everything is working. YEAH!! :-)
