Report Designer - Issues with update after query

Postby kpmcginley » Sun Jun 22, 2008 11:45 am

A quick search of relevant posts reveals nothing like the experience I am having, so I will add this post. I have designed a report and set up an option to either preview or print the report. I have also designed a search subroutine. When I query the db and then display the report, it is incorrect. It shows all the records. However, if I press search again, it correctly diisplays the query results.

This is the code I am using:
Code: Select all
DateToNum "[SearchBeginDate]" "m/d/y" "[SearchBeginDateJ]"
DateToNum "[SearchEndDate]" "m/d/y" "[SearchEndDateJ]"
.AlertBox "Check" "SearchBeginDateJ = [SearchBeginDateJ]| SearchEndDateJ = [SearchEndDateJ]"
IfEx "[searchbegindateJ] <> [#34][#34] and [SearchEndDateJ] <> [#34][#34]"
dbpQuery "checkin" "ds" "dischargejulian >=[SearchBeginDateJ] AND dischargejulian <=[SearchEndDateJ]"
IfEx "[searchbegindateJ] = [#34][#34] and [SearchEndDateJ] <> [#34][#34]"
dbpQuery "checkin" "ds" "dischargejulian <=[SearchEndDateJ]"
IfEx "[searchbegindateJ] <> [#34][#34] and [SearchEndDateJ] = [#34][#34]"
dbpQuery "checkin" "ds" "dischargejulian >=[SearchBeginDateJ]"

It seems odd that the first preview request would show all records, then previewing again would show the query results. Anyone notice anything like this? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks.

I suggest you first check out whether the dbfQuery commands are doing what they are supposed to do ... either with AlertBox commands within each IfEx/EndIf code block that display the value of the [checkin.ds.$RecCount] variable ... or by displaying the records grid inside a Rectangle object.

When querying date fields you should surround the date with # characters. For example:

Code: Select all
dbpQuery "database id" "table" "datDate >= #[start_date]# and datDate <= #[end_date]#"


Code: Select all
dbpQuery "database id" "table" "datDate between #[start_date]# and #[end_date]#"

Without the # characters, the SQL engine processes the date as a mathematical formula. I don't know if this is a quirk of MS Access alone or also applies to other DBs.
