    I read the sqlite3 order table and there is a field "order_date" defined as datetime.

    dataset.CommandText = "select order_date ,order_no,name, description," & _
    " from mcrm_order "

    1. should i specify my order_date as date(order_date) in sql statement ?
    2. how can i get the value and assign it to Calender control ?

    I have tried this but it said that

    OrderDateCalenderControl.Value = datasource.GetValue(0)

    input string was not in a correct format Error!
    Can anyone help ? Thanks.

    Best Regards,

    Hi ,

    I got the answer ,

    **pls take note that my sqlite table , order field type is datetime
    ** and the date is saved as "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss" 24 hours format.
    ** and my sql statement must use the sqlite function to convert the
    ** datetimestr to date , date(order_date) ,.... from order
    ** then in my basic4ppc code as follow :

    OrderDateStr = datasource.GetValue(0) '0 is my order_date field
    Order.edOrderDate.Value = DateParse( OrderDateStr )

    HTH. Thanks.

    I use this lines to set de date on calendar:

    Tics=DateParse (Campo1.text)

    Campo1.text is the date read from your database.

    I hope this could help you.
