It's important to know if "OSDATE" is defined as numeric or alpha. Dave

Hi Larry. I'm thinking that because you're using the %DIGITS function to convert your date, your database field is numeric. The %DIGITS function converts a numeric to a character field. So, on your select statement, I think you need some double quotes around your two dates. I copied your OPNQRYF statement into the code section, and added the double quotes to where I think they should go. I believe that your OPNQRYF statement needs to look like the second code section. Only difference is the double quotes around the two dates. Try running the OPNQRYF statement with the double quotes, and see if that works for you. Let me know if this helps.
