*sigh*...ok, so I looked over the syntax in the db manager program, and I realized that I actually copied it twice and then tried to execute that...:$ :icon_redface: :$

It works, and I am getting the 10072 records returned...

In that case, this makes no sense because the whole thing should be working. You are really going to have to pound that part of the script. We have verified that the field is of date data type, have eliminated the date picker as the problem, the sql query is formatted correctly, I don't see any changes to those variables before you insert them into the query so I'm sure that the query is the same from your script. You are going to have to start from the query in your script. Add some test outputs like

echo $query . "<br /><br />" . mysql_num_rows($sql);

after your mysql_query() function.

This should be working.
:confused:

I added it here:

.
.
.
			include('./connect.php');
			global $conn;
			
			// Start our query of the database 
			$query = "SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') >= '$sDate' and DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') <= '$eDate'";
			
			$sql = mysql_query($query, $conn);	
			
			echo $query . "<br /><br />" . mysql_num_rows($sql);	
.
.
.

and this is the result:

SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') >= 'Nov-1-2007' and DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') <= 'Nov-1-2007'
0

I think the problem lies here

$sql = mysql_query($query, $conn);

it doesn't echo anything, but if I remove the $conn, I get the "Resource ID#6" error being displayed...:confused: :confused: :confused:

You know, I think you're right. that it has something to do with the resource. go ahead and substitute these two lines for your database connection.

include('./connect.php');
			global $conn;

So what I mean take your connect and select db lines from ./connect.php and paste it right there.

0

for the time being, but a die statement after your mysql_query.

$sql = mysql_query($query, $conn) or die(mysql_error());
0

Here is the code....and still nothing shows...

.
.
.
	include('./connect.php');
                global $conn;
			
	// Start our query of the database 
	$query = "SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') >= '$sDate' and DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') <= '$eDate'";
			
	$sql = mysql_query($query, $conn) or die("Error: ".mysql_error());	
	echo $sql;
.
.
.
0

The only thing that I can think of is that connection script because we have been through and verified everything else.

0

but the connection script works properly for all the other parts of the application...

0

try moving the die statement onto the mysql_num_rows function since that is where it seems to be hanging up. Se if we can get an error out of it.

0
.
.
.
	include('./connect.php');
	global $conn;
			
	// Start our query of the database 
	$query = "SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') >= '$sDate' and DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') <= '$eDate'";
			
	$sql = mysql_query($query, $conn);	
	//echo $sql;
	echo $query . "<br /><br />" . mysql_num_rows($sql) or die("Error: ".mysql_error());					
.
.
.

the result displayed is 1

0

The only thing that I can think of is your connection object because we have already tested your query and it works fine. I will test it tonight and post the entire working script tomorrow.

0

made a couple of adjustments. to eliminate the "headers already sent" errors, I put ob_start() at the top of the script. Other wise, everything is as we have been talking about and it works fine for me.
connect.php

<?php
define('SQL_HOST', 'servername');
define('SQL_USER', 'username');
define('SQL_PASS', 'password');
define('SQL_DBOC', 'dbname');
define('SQL_DBM', 'mysql');

$conn=mysql_connect(SQL_HOST, SQL_USER, SQL_PASS) OR die('Could not connect to the database. ' .				mysql_error());
mysql_select_db(SQL_DBOC,$conn) or die(mysql_error());

Hi R0bb0b,

Firstly, let me thank you for all that you've done till now, I am truely grateful for your guidance.... :)

Now the problem at hand:
I made the necessary changes and it works to an extent...here are the outcomes:

  1. When I select the dates: Nov-1-2007 and Nov-9-2007, I am getting all the records in the table (which is wrong) but when I select the dates: Nov-1-2007 and Nov-1-2007, I get the records for that date only. :confused:
  2. When I save the .csv file, I cannot open it in a MS Excel (this was working earlier on in this thread), I am getting a file is corrupt message, but the .csv file can only open in notepad/any text application. :confused:
  3. The .csv file not only has the records from the table but also the entire code from the testGCR.php file. :confused:

If I am not mistaken, some of these problems we got before (earlier on in this thread), because that was the reason behind the change of the billDate data-type etc.

:confused: :confused: :confused:

2 questions though...

  1. why did you use the ob_start()?
  2. and why didn't you use the ob_end_flush()?

The only reason I used ob_start() is because you are sending the .csv header after you have posted to the page to keep from getting an error. I probably should have used ob_end_flush() as well, just didn't think of it.

And you are doing something very strange if you are seeing php code in the .csv file, which would be why it is corrupt since it is no longer in .csv format. If you read the documentation on datatypes and functions, you will see that the sql query is in the right format. While the program is in production, you should be echoing that query every time so you can see what it looks like when ever something strange happens.

Strange?!? :-/ ...I'm just editing my script with the changes you said to, and saving it in the folder on the server...and running it on the browser...I selected the dates from the pop-up calender, and click the generate button...that's all...

i have now added the ob_end_flush(); line at the end of the testGCR.php script, as well as set the code to only echo the data found, not to download it into the .csv...let me run that and let you know...

__________________________________________________________________________________
In my output, I am seeing the form as well as the results...can't figure out why, but still looking

Hello R0bb0b,

I was able to remove the testGCR.php code from the results page and I tested it with the following data:

  • Start Date = Nov-1-2007
    End Date = Nov-1-2007
    I got all the records with the billDate = Nov-1-2007
  • Start Date = Nov-2-2007
    End Date = Nov-2-2007
    I got all the records with the billDate = Nov-2-2007
  • Start Date = Nov-1-2007
    End Date = Nov-9-2007
    I did not get all the records with the billDate between the start and end date stated above, instead I got all the data from the table...

Here is my sql query:

$query = "SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') between '$sDate' and '$eDate'";

You are going to have to analyze the queries that are being sent to mysql by outputing the query to the browser and pasting it into mysql. I think that will clear this up since this doesn't make a whole lot of sense otherwise.

0

Hi R0bb0b,

I echoed my $query and this is how it looks:

SELECT * FROM tsttbills where DATE_FORMAT(billDate, '%b-%e-%Y') between 'Nov-1-2007' and 'Nov-9-2007'

When I copied this query and pasted it into the MySQL Query Browser and ran it, I got the entire table of data displaying...

I got the problem sorted out...honestly I did not do anything to it...what happened is that a technician came and installed the cd/dvd writer on the machine, I started the machine and loaded dreamweaver (like I do every morning) but dreamweaver said that it was reloading the cache...I didn't know that needed to happen!!! anyways, when I typed in the date in the format mysql has it stored (I was trying it without the calendar), it worked perfectly...so I tried using the calendar (with the date format syntax in the mysql syntax) and it didn't work....so i started hunting online for a calendar to enter the date in the format that mysql stores the date...and presto! i got 1, and now my caledar works like a charm...

Wow, cache huh? That sucks and is great at the same time.
