Default Chap. 15, pages 689-690 : Help !

I am currently building the application outlined in the whole of chapter 15, but at line 24 in the file "BrowseListings.asp" I have stumbled upon an error that I do not understand.

Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E07).
Syntax error in Date of query expression ExpirationDate > #07.08.2003# AND ItemStatus = 'Active'
/BegASPFiles/BrowseListings.asp, line 24".

(the errror message is roughly translated from Norwegian)

Here's a listing of the actual code that returns the error:

  Dim rsItems
  strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Item " & _
           "WHERE ExpirationDate > #" & FormatDateTime(Now,2) & "# " & _
           "AND ItemStatus = 'Active';"
  Set rsItems = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  rsItems.Open strSQL, objConn
  If Not rsItems.EOF Then

I've checked both my "Classified.mdb" Access-database and all other .asp code-pages involved for spelling errors but found none.

The error is in the strSQL - but *what* is wrong ?

Hope someone can help me.

I had a similar problem and changed one line to

"WHERE ExpirationDate >Now() " & _

and everything seems to be working fine for me.

Hope that this helps you

Thank you Giuliano, your fix worked with me too without error!
(But is it FormatDateTime that is the problem ?)

Jennifer Taylor: The code can be found here http://web.wrox.com/0764543636/3382ch15.zip
by the name "BrowseListings.asp".

Regards, Arild
