    I would like to compare dates in MS ACCESS

    SELECT *
    FROM Ledger
    WHERE TranDate>1/1/2008 TranDate<1/1/2009
    ORDER BY TranDate;

    But when I use the above it gives no results where as there are lots of records for 2008 and when I use quotes it gives error saying datatype mismatch

    I think this should work :

    Code:
    SELECT *
    FROM Ledger
    WHERE TranDate BETWEEN #1/1/2008#  AND #1/1/2009#
    ORDER BY TranDate;
    I think you have used Oracle or SQLServer earlier, so you used quotes. But the delimiter in MS Access is # not ' ;)

    U Haven't used "and" keyword to join both conditions..use it like this..
    SELECT *
    FROM Ledger
    WHERE TranDate>1/1/2008 andTranDate<1/1/2009
    ORDER BY TranDate;


    And Also be Sure that TranDate is Text dataType ......

    That won't work without # delimiter.

    TranDate is obviously Date data-type.

    Sriram, don't be hurried to post.
    Take your time and include all you want to say in one post.

    Of course it is date datatype if we don't use # then trandate should be text datatype else if it is date datatype then we have to use #....Cool KID.
