boxes i want the date field to be enter by the client and want to
display the record between those 2 dates how can i do the same, plz be
more specific

Thanks in advance,

You can do this very easily with a named scope in your model:

named_scope :between, lambda {|start_date, end_date| {:conditions =>
[“created_at BETWEEN :start AND :end”, {:start => start_date, :end =>
end_date}]}}

I’m not sure if this is an issue or not, but note that Oracle’s DATE
field is also used for storing DATETIME. Maybe the Rails Oracle adaptor
handles this properly, but I just wanted to mention it in case you see
weird behavior.

P. S. I wish my application could use “The Oracle” as its database. It
would always get the correct response even if it doesn’t know what to
ask. :wink:

I used @date2ss = Date2.find(:all, :conditions => “ID > '”+ @date1 +"’
and ID <’"+ @date2+"’") and it works…
thanks,

You can also use
Model.find(:all, :conditions => {:date => date1…date2})
