Not able to get item collection by my CAML in date range, while able to get in simple CAML query.

Please any body let me know what is the correct format of passing date string.

function check_Submission() { 
    this.clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current(); 
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('Employee Sift Details');
    var startDateFx ="2015-11-17T20:21:11Z";
    var endDatFx ="2015-11-17T20:21:11Z"; 
    var StrQuery = '<View Scope=\'RecursiveAll\'>' +
                        '<Query>' +
                            '<Where>' +
                            '<Geq>' +
                                '<FieldRef Name='Sift_x0020_Date' />' +
                                '<Value Type='DateTime' IncludeTimeValue='FALSE'>'+endDatFx+'</Value>' +
                            '</Geq>' +
                            '</Where>' +
                        '</Query>' +
    var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
    this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);
    this.clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQuerySucceeded4), Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQueryFailed4));

function onQuerySucceeded4(sender, args) { 
    alert('Request sucwess');

function onQueryFailed4(sender, args) {
    alert('Request failed. \nError: ' + args.get_message() + '\nStackTrace: ' + args.get_stackTrace());

The CAML query is exactly doing what you tell it to do..

Check your single quotes.. the string you build is messed up

var StrQuery = '<View Scope=\'RecursiveAll\'>'

Correct, you escaped the quotes

'<FieldRef Name='Sift_x0020_Date' />' +

Incorrect, either escape the single quotes or use a double-quote

  • hi Danny thanks for reply , I think single quote is correct because same type query working for other type column but not working in date type column the problem is only for date type. Commented Nov 5, 2015 at 10:30

  • Yes, you escaped the single quotes so they are included in the string.. Please mark the answer so it does not popup anymore in that list of 19000 unanswered questions. tnx Commented Nov 5, 2015 at 11:42
