why not just work with as datetime data?

are you sure you're comparing dates, and not text strings?

why not do this in SQL instead of the vbscript in the page?

a possible hole in the logic: shouldn't you be comparing an event's date
to the current date on the calendar? I mean, won't the event's end date
*always* be greater than or equal to the event's date? most stuff ends
after it started ;)
