Command object with MySQL

Command object with MySQL

Command object with MySQL

I want to modify my accounting app to use MySQL database instead of an Access database.
Below is how I write my command and parameters for an access db.

CODE --> VB6

strSQL = strSQL & "FROM AR_Invoice_Detail INNER JOIN (Invoices LEFT JOIN AcctsReceivable ON Invoices.CustID = AcctsReceivable.CustID) ON Invoices.InvoiceID = AR_Invoice_Detail.InvoiceID "
    strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE Printed = True AND DebitTransType = 'I' AND InvoiceDate  BETWEEN ? AND ? GROUP BY AcctsReceivable.CustID ORDER BY Max(CustName)"
    Set cmdInvoiceList = New ADODB.command
    cmdInvoiceList.ActiveConnection = cnAccounting
    cmdInvoiceList.CommandText = strSQL
    cmdInvoiceList.CommandType = adCmdText
    cmdInvoiceList.Prepared = True
    Set prmStart = cmdInvoiceList.CreateParameter("Start", adDate, adParamInput, 8)
    Set prmEnd = cmdInvoiceList.CreateParameter("End", adDate, adParamInput, 8)
    cmdInvoiceList.Parameters.Append prmStart
    cmdInvoiceList.Parameters.Append prmEnd 

And this is how I assign values to the parameters and create a recordset

CODE --> VB6

prmStart.Value = DateSerial(CLng(cboYear), cboMonth.ItemData(cboMonth.ListIndex), 1)
    prmEnd.Value = DateSerial(CLng(cboYear), cboMonth.ItemData(cboMonth.ListIndex) + 1, 0)
    Set rsInvoiceList = cmdInvoiceList.Execute 

How can I change this to use with MySQL database as I understand MySQL does not use adDate

RE: Command object with MySQL

Please ignore this post. It does work, I am doing something else wrong.
