Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for visual FoxPro

Description:SQL: Colum DATETIME is not found

Crystal reports failed to retrieve data from the databse


The Visual FoxPro v.9 Database files can only be accessed via OLE DB (ADO). However, there is a problem with OLE DB trying to filter VFP9 records in a date time formatted field.  This error shown is self explanatory telling you that there is some problem with DATETIME format in your SQL server using OLE DB connection for visual FoxPro. Changing date format will not solve the problem. You have to filter it to DATE (only) format and it would definitely work for you.

So you have to change DATETIME format to DATE only. Define a report variable called new_cust.entrydate and filter it:

{cust.entrydate} >= DateTime (2010, 01, 01, 00, 00, 00) would instead be written:

{new_cust.entrydate) >= Date (2010, 01, 01)
