Subject:Re: Tcursor SetRange() and SetGenFilter()

You can use a range and filter, at least I just tested on a tcursor open
to a table.

Based on what you said:

>"Date Separator missing"
I think this is a specific message, applying a non valid date to date.

is dynFilt empty prior to this?


Is CULL a logical field - add logical cast
>dynFilt["Cull"] = logical(TRUE )

Is CULL on the form / table frame?
If not add it (you can make it run visible false).

Test the filter alone.
Can you set the filter before the range?
Without the range?
