I am having a problem with whereClause in SearchCursor. Can anyone tell me what is the issue here?


When I use the first version without date everything works fine. When I add the date part. It fails with the error messages I pasted at the bottom:



whereClause =   'STA_CODE = "' + code + '" AND FC IS NOT NULL AND FC <> 0'


whereClause =  'SAMP_DATE < "2020/12/31" AND STA_CODE = "' + code + '" AND FC IS NOT NULL AND FC <> 0'


recs = arcpy.SearchCursor(samples, whereClause, "", "", "SAMP_DATE D")




Failed script ScriptMP...
