Default search by oracle dates using asp

If the following is the table structure in Oracle 8i...

table name: TEST

-- ----
11 8/15/2004
12 9/15/2004
13 10/15/2004
14 11/15/2004

I know it can be done through Oracle 8i SQL PLUS by..

select * from TEST where DATE > to_date('9/1/2004', 'mm/dd/yyyy') and DATE < to_date('10/30/2004', 'mm/dd/yyyy');

The result should display...

-- ----
12 9/15/2004
13 10/15/2004

The question is... how can I store '9/1/2004' and '10/30/2004' into two String variables and execute the same query with the same result.

For instance,

beginningDATE = '9/1/2004'
endingDate = '10/30/2004'

select * from TEST where DATE > to_date(beginningDATE, 'mm/dd/yyyy') and DATE < to_date(endingDate, 'mm/dd/yyyy');

When I execute the above, I get the following error message:

ORA-00907: missing right parenthesis

Thanks in advance.

beginningDATE = '9/1/2004'
endingDate = '10/30/2004'

Can you change the initilization of variables into

beginningDATE = to_date('9/1/2004' , 'mm/dd/yyyy')
endingDate = to_date('10/30/2004', 'mm/dd/yyyy')

select * from TEST where DATE between beginningDATE and endingDate;

Thanks for your prompt answer.

However, I keep getting a syntax error. Please see below.

Syntax error
/orderlinkdev/Invoices/DailyRight.asp, line 110, column 24
beginningDate = to_date('9/14/2004', 'mm/dd/yyyy')

Any other ideas?? Thanks.
