Date Prompt in Freehand SQL excluding the Time (Web Rich Client Report)

Date Prompt in Freehand SQL excluding the Time (Web Rich Client Report)

Date Prompt in Freehand SQL excluding the Time (Web Rich Client Report)

I have a Date Prompt in a freehand SQL query in a Web Rich Client report.

I've used the following code to achieve that:

WHERE e.data_hora_inicial >= @prompt('Start of Period','D',,Mono,Free,Persistent,,User:0)

The underlying data in PostgreSQL and data_hora_inicial is a Timestamp column.

However when ever I run the report the prompt is only returning the Date and not the time. I've proventhat by including the @prompt as one of the columns returned and it only returns the date and a time of 00:00:00 when formatted to show date and time.
If I swap out the @prompt for a hard-coded Date and Time the query works as I would expect.

Am I doing something wrong?
Any advice appreciated.
