Oh boy.. having the date stored as a varchar in that particular format will be profoundly
problematic.  You might want to store it YYYY-MM-DD or the SQL BETWEEN will mangle the
expected return results.

Does it work (return a non-empty result-set) when you omit the LIMIT clause?

Does it work (return a non-empty result-set) when you omit the board_action_date BETWEEN
comparator clause?

Subject: Query not returning Data

Sorry about double post, I am having problems with my ISP.

I have the following query:

FROM Sight_Hearing_Help
WHERE 'type_help' = "Eye Exam & Glasses"
AND 'board_action_date' BETWEEN "07-01-2007" AND "12-31-2007"
LIMIT 0 , 60;

Returns empty row every time. The board_action_date is a varchar field. Not
a date field. I have also tried using form 2007-07-01.

Additional information:
  SUSE 10.2, MySQL 5.0.26-14 

Any help would be appreciated!
