I tried to make a report based on date and displays the result in the text "edt1". But no result. I think the problem is in the sql query and exactly in the specification of the "strdatedebut" and "strdatefin".

What I have tried:

there is mydatabasehelper :

public String calculrapport(Argent a)
       db = this.getWritableDatabase();
           String rv = "0";
           db = this.getWritableDatabase();
           String query = "select sum(Entree) from Argent where date between \"strdatedebut\" and \"strdatefin\" ;";
           Cursor cursor = db.rawQuery(query , null) ;
           if (cursor.moveToFirst()) {
               rv = cursor.getString(0);
           return rv;

There is my class :

package com.example.pc.myapplication;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;
public class rapport extends Activity {
    DatabaseHelper helper = new DatabaseHelper(this);
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    public void onOKClick ( View v ) {
        if (v.getId() == {
            EditText datedebut = (EditText) findViewById(;
            EditText datefin = (EditText) findViewById(;
            TextView edt1 = (TextView) findViewById(;
            String strdatedebut = datedebut.getText().toString();
            String strdatefin = datefin.getText().toString();
            Argent a = new Argent();
           String sum =  helper.calculrapport(a);

Have you tried debugging your app? Check this link on how to: Debug your app  |  Android Developers[^]

Yes I tried to debug the application but i don't receive any useful information

The whole point of debugging is to check that you are getting the expected values at each line of code. If not, then look at why not. All debugging information is useful if used correctly.

What are the values in your two date parameters, and did the SELECT return anything?
Member 13901696 7-Jul-18 6:00am
Thanks for tour response. The two date parameters is fixed in the class and they changed always. and the select doesn't return anything.

Then you know where to look to diagnose the problem.

1 solution

Your query doesn't look right to me.
String query = "select sum(Entree) from Argent where date between \"strdatedebut\" and \"strdatefin\" ;";

This looks like it will send the two literal strings strdatedebut and strdatefin rather than inserting variables. Try this?
String query = "select sum(Entree) from Argent where date between '" + strdatedebut + "' and '" + strdatefin + "' ;";

Note that's single quote around the insertion of the variables holding the date.
BTW one way that you can debug these things is to copy the contents of query to the clipboard and paste it into a query window. When you try to run it you might get an error in the results window.

Of course, well spotted.
