OK DeJuan, but, probably your field's type is datetime and my type is
date. If I use your statement, I receive the following message:

ERROR: No such function 'date_in' with the specified attributes

By the way, I'm using the statement: 

SELECT * FROM calls WHERE date_in>='$month-01-$year' AND
date_in<='$month-31-$year' ORDER BY employee_nbr, date_in

And it works fine.

Thanks,
Paulo K
