hi pls check date format,i think u pass date that not match with in in ur table u have date like "2014-02-27 11:13.00" but u pass date in where condition like "27-02-2014" it not match and u not get any result so pass correct format.
sruthyjoseph 27-Feb-14 0:57am    
both date formats are same..
and i get answer if i use OR instead of AND..
CreateTask.Start_date >= '" + enterdate + "' OR CreateTask.End_date <= '" + enterdate + "'..
but nly 1 row is getting as output..
Aravindba 27-Feb-14 1:10am    
hi if u use OR then u get answer means start or end date satisfy so it display result.i think any one date satisfy so get result,but if u use AND one date not satisfy both date so it not display result.u have try manually,change start and end date in table and try to give same date through ur application then both date satisfy then u get result.

convert the enterdate into date time format. check is there any record with the condition you have given in the select statement

Your query must be like this,

select CreateTask.Task,EmployeeDetails.Category_name,EmployeeDetails.Employee_name,TaskAssigned.Start_time,TaskAssigned.End_time,LeaveDetails.leave,CreateTask.Start_date,CreateTask.End_date from CreateTask,TaskCategoryMastertable,EmployeeDetails,LeaveDetails,TaskAssigned WHERE  CONVERT(DATE,CreateTask.Start_date) between CONVERT(DATE, enterdate ) AND CONVERT(DATE, enterdate ))

sruthyjoseph 27-Feb-14 4:27am

Hi Sruthy,

try the below script...

EmployeeDetails e
INNER JOIN LeaveDetails l ON e.Employee_id = l.Employee_id
INNER JOIN TaskAssigned ta ON e.Employee_id = ta.Employee_id
LEFT JOIN CreateTask ct ON ta.Task_id = ct.Task_id
where ct.Start_date >= '' AND ct.End_date <= ''

hi RG
LeaveDetails l ON e.Employee_id = l.Employee_id ..this is not needed i need everyone even they are on leave or not.if we provide that condition then those who are on leave nly will b given i removed it
SELECT ct.Task,ct.Start_date,ct.End_date,e.Category_name,e.Employee_name,ta.Start_time,ta.End_time,l.leave FROM EmployeeDetails e INNER JOIN LeaveDetails l INNER JOIN TaskAssigned ta ON e.Employee_id = ta.Employee_id LEFT JOIN CreateTask ct ON ta.Task_id = ct.Task_id where ct.Start_date >= '" + enterdate + "' AND ct.End_date <= '" + enterdate + "'

i write it as this after removing that cndition..nw im getting an error:incorrect syntax near where..
sruthyjoseph 27-Feb-14 5:42am    
how to correct this??
sruthyjoseph 27-Feb-14 4:50am    
hi RG
thanks for spending ur valuable time for me....
I think its a logic error.NOT a Conversion Error

In ur code u r checking

WHERE  CreateTask.Start_date >= '" + enterdate + "' AND CreateTask.End_date <= '" + enterdate + "'");

consider ur table having start date as 01-10-2011 and end date as 01-20-2011
and ur entry date is 01-14-2011

from ur query u check

01-10-2011>=01-14-2011(always false except start date=enter date)
01-20-2011<=01-14-2011(always false except end date=enter date)

So plz change query to

WHERE  CreateTask.Start_date <= '" + enterdate + "' AND CreateTask.End_date >= '" + enterdate + "'");


WHERE '" + enterdate + "' BETWEEN CreateTask.Start_date  AND CreateTask.End_date);

SqlDataReader dr = ob.exdr("select CreateTask.Task,EmployeeDetails.Category_name,EmployeeDetails.Employee_name,TaskAssigned.Start_time,TaskAssigned.End_time,LeaveDetails.leave from CreateTask,EmployeeDetails,LeaveDetails,TaskAssigned WHERE '" + enterdate + "'>= CreateTask.Start_date AND '" + enterdate + "' <=CreateTask.End_date AND EmployeeDetails.Employee_id=TaskAssigned.Employee_id AND TaskAssigned.Task_id=CreateTask.Task_id");

now im getting correct answer but only 1 row is using table(bcs i cant use gridview).I think only 1 row can be returned using my code .please change my code such that all the matching rows can be displayed in table..
My code is this:
protected void ImageButton1_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)

ba.enterdate = Convert.ToDateTime(TextBox1.Text);
SqlDataReader dt = ba.TaskListingSelect5();
Table t = new Table();
TableRow tr = new TableRow();
TableHeaderCell t1 = new TableHeaderCell();
t1.Text = "Category Name";
TableHeaderCell t2 = new TableHeaderCell();
t2.Text = "Task";
TableHeaderCell t3 = new TableHeaderCell();
t3.Text = "Employee Name";
TableHeaderCell t4 = new TableHeaderCell();
t4.Text = "Start time";
TableHeaderCell t5 = new TableHeaderCell();
t5.Text = "End time";

TableHeaderCell t6 = new TableHeaderCell();
t6.Text = "Leave status";

TableCell c1 = new TableCell();
TableCell c2 = new TableCell();
TableCell c3 = new TableCell();
TableCell c4 = new TableCell();
TableCell c5 = new TableCell();
TableCell c6 = new TableCell();
//int count = dt.FieldCount;

while (dt.Read())

//for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
// {
c1.Text= dt.GetValue(0).ToString();
c2.Text = dt.GetValue(1).ToString();
c4.Text= dt.GetValue(3).ToString();
c5.Text = dt.GetValue(4).ToString();
c6.Text = dt.GetValue(5).ToString();
// }

sruthyjoseph 27-Feb-14 23:57pm
