I have a data table that I queried and developed prompts.

One prompt is a Date prompt that ask for a beginning date and ending date.

The date format in the field I'm prompting is mm/yyyy (04/2013).

I formatted the Prompt as "Date Range" "Day" Type.

In the Query filter the Date Prompt is "Range".

When I run the prompts, it totally ignores the beginning and ending dates in the date range.

Any ideas?

Here's a blog post I wrote about using date range prompts - it might help you figure out where the issue is:
