Hi everyone,

I'm really upset! I know it's silly to be but after spending half a
day trying to find out why a report isn't giving me any output at all
it's just so frustrating to find it could be something pretty simple!

I have a table with Date and Time columns in date/time format.
I'm succesfully storing the date as dd/mm/yy.
I want to use a date and time from that table to base a report on
where I print only the last so many records.
To do this I'm trying to set the recordsource of the report to an sql

"Select * from tblStatus where " _
          & "   fDate >= #" & dlDate & "#" _
        & " AND fTime >= #" & dlTime & "#;"

I know there is data there because I've just set dlDate and dlTime to
values from the same table.
..But.. The report is blank! :-(

I've tracked the problem.. I think.. to the date format.
The short date format for the computer is set to dd/mm/yy but it looks
as thought sql is expecting mm/dd/yy.

Is it possible that anyone knows what's happening here please? Does
sql expect a certain date format?
