Select record based on 'change' date

Hi,

I currently have a database containing a table with the following fields:
signid, sign_typ, changedate and time.

The 'changedate' field is the date on which the star sign changes and becomes 'active' until the next 'changedate' in the table. I am trying to search this field by a date the user enters and display the 'sign_typ'.


I am struggling to get this working and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Paul

    You'd probably find this a lot easier if you added a third filed, enddate, which is the date when this sign ends. Then you can write a query with a WHERE clause like:-

    WHERE changedate >= '$theDateYouHave' AND endDate <= '$theDateYouHave'

    Make sure changedate and enddate have a column type of DATE. You need to feed the date in in the format YYYY-MM-DD if I remember correctly.
