im trying to make a sample filtr on B1 table OHEM

Me.title is a param with the Date which interesed me. when Me.title ( String ) = "19980704" or = "1998/07/04"

and in myTable (Matrix of DBDataSource datas )i have one position with this value, im getting and exception error

(0xFFFFFFFFF): Exception from HRESUTL: 0xFFFFFFFFF. at ... Query(Conditions Conds). in the debag. cond.CondVal ="1998-07-04 00:00:00" so it was formated correctly !!

here is a part of the code:

conds = New SAPbouiCOM.Conditions

If (Me.title <> "") Then

cond = conds.Add

cond.BracketOpenNum = 1

cond.Alias = "startDate"

cond.Operation = SAPbouiCOM.BoConditionOperation.co_EQUAL

sDate = CDate(Me.title)


cond.BracketCloseNum = 1

End If





Catch ex As Exception

SBO_Application.MessageBox(" query error " + ex.ToString)

End Try

Hey Amir.

Do u have a try catch block around that line? Does it throw any exceptions? Can you try hardcoding a date in the same format? I am not sure if you need to use this format when setting the object data directly or if you have to actually use a date object. Can you try setting it to the system date

im still have a problem with this date format.

Now the filtre is working but when im trying to update the date field in my Matrix which show the results

oEmp = SBO_Company.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oEmployeesInfo)

oEmp.GetByKey(myData.GetValue("empID", lineNr))

oEmp.FirstName = myData.GetValue("firstName", lineNr)

oEmp.LastName = myData.GetValue("lastName", lineNr)

text = myData.GetValue("startDate", lineNr)

oEmp.StartDate = text.ToString

If oEmp.Update() <> 0 Then


End If

Next lineNr

Updateing the firstName and lastName field works fine but the date crash and the application stop to work!!. The "text" gives me ( "19980102" format ) so it should be accepted by the database!!!!.

have you any infos to share with me about this issue??

Hey Amir.

What error message do you receive? We have also experience issues with setting the date type on a matrix field.

The problem we had occured when the month or day value was a single digit. We always had to add 0 in front of it for the date to get set.

Ex: 200511 was not accepted but 20050101 worked

You should not convert the date with CDate when working with a condition (I guess you will have found out in the meantime by yourself...):

From these statements only c) "DB format" works.

a) sDate = CDate("2002/05/01") ' US format

b) sDate = CDate("01.05.2002") ' common format in Mid-Europe

c) sDate = "20020501" ' "DB format"

cond.CondVal = sDate.ToString
