    Question Unanswered: Query to show current statuses

    Hi

    I am trying to use a query to get current status of an object
    at the moment my code looks like this
    sql = " SELECT *
    FROM Artefact
    WHERE WhenStatusStart <= #" & Now.Date & "#"
    AND WhenStatusEnd >= #" & Now.Date & "#;"

    this works fine as long as i use the "#" symbols around the date, but it doesn't work if i use timestamps instead dates. ie: use Now instead of Now.date.

    What is the syntax i have to use to make the above query work with timestamps?

    Can anybody help me!!!!

    try
    WHERE WhenStatusStart <= #" & Date() & "#"
    AND WhenStatusEnd >= #" & Date() & "#;"

    or
    WHERE WhenStatusStart <= #" & Now() & "#"
    AND WhenStatusEnd >= #" & Now() & "#;"
    hope this help

    thanx Myle but u misread my question

    The query i wrote in the first post works fine...
    but it doesn't work if i use a datestamp variable instead of just a date variable
    what do i have to put around the "Now" to make the query execute

    btw the Now is a VB.NET Fuction, not Access.
