Dear Amrit,

1) Please make sure that the table account exists.

2) Date is a keyword. You cannot use that as the alias for a column / expression. Either use some other aliase such as myDate or use [Date].

3) I think account is also a keyword. I am not sure. Please put it in square brackets ([account]) and try.

Hi there,

Do a response.write of your sql statement to see if it is contructed without any issues. And try running that directly in your DB and see if that produces the same error or runs successully.

adCmdTable - Have the provider generate an SQL query and return all rows from the specified table

adCmdText = Evaluate as a textual definition

Try adCmdText there. Take a look at this page Recordset.Open method
