I'm writing a program that records time-in and time-out and I have a problem when trying to retrieve data for a specific date.
In the table, the "timein" and "timeout" fields have format of "smalldatetime". To record the timein, I insert the system time (by using System.DateTime.Now) into the "timein" field.
I want two types of searches.
1) Search records between a date range
2) Search records for a specific date
For example, First, I want to search if there are any records between 11/2/2010 and 12/1/2010. I will ask user to input "11/2/2010" as start date and "12/1/2010" as end date. I will use Convert.DateTime() methods to convert these two input before put them into SQL query like:
"SELECT * FROM timesheet WHERE timein BETWEEN Convert.DateTime(startdate) AND Convert.DateTime(enddate)"
The output results do not include the date 11/2/2010 and 12/1/2010. I get only the dates in between. I know that is the limitation of BETWEEN. I wonder if someone has a way to work around this limitation.
Secondly, I want to prompt users to enter a specific date like (11/2/2010) and search the table for rows match that criteria. I can't get this to work. I have tried "SELECT * from timesheet WHERE timein LIKE '%searchdate%'", "......timei
