<?php
						
							while($row=mysqli_fetch_assoc($result))
							{
								
								$userid = $row['OracleID'];
								$name = $row['StaffName'];
								$des = $row['Des'];
						
						?>
						
						<tr>
						
							<td><?php echo $userid ?></td>
							<td><?php echo $name ?></td>
							<td><?php echo $des ?></td>
							<td><input type="date" name="startdate"></td>
							<td><input type="date" name="enddate"></td>
							<td><a href="reportbyidbydate.php?GetID=<?php echo $userid?>&startdate=<?php echo $startdate?> ">Print Full Report</a></td>
						
						</tr>
						
						<?php
						
							}
						
						?>

Use a form, not a link.

I am using the link to get the exact information of specific user in the db, from that I will generate a report of attendance. I am trying to have 2 fields of dates (Start and End) so that then i will go to next page and use that information to get the reports based on the selected dates.

from 3-1-2020 to 3-15-2020, this will generate report of attendance from 3-1-2020 until 3-15-2020 instead of getting all dates. That is my aim. so i am using the link to refer to the right user by his id.

Is there a better way.

 

screenshot attached, this is getting all dates i need the admin to put 2 dates "From and To" then generates based on selection.

i solved it with only one problem, if i choose 3-1-2020 to 3-15-2020 i get only one record excluding the 3-15-2020 but i put 3-1-2020 to 3-16-2020 i get both, there is 1 day difference why is that?

code :

		$sdate1 = $_POST['sdate'];
		$edate1 = $_POST['edate'];
							
		$query = "select * from attendance_records where OracleID = '".$userid."' and isdone= '".$isdone."' and ClockingInDate >= '".$sdate1."' and ClockingOutDate <= '".$edate1."'";
		$result = mysqli_query($con, $query);

where clockingindate is start date in DB, clockingoutdate is end date in DB. sdate and edate are taken from admin user in the form.

I'm not sure I followed that question but I think the right reply is something like "if you enter 3-15-2020 as the date then what is the time?"

yes i did, I am using a form but putting the type to date gives me to pick dates only with no time.

code:
 

<form action="#" method="post">

	<input type="date" name="sdate" required="required"></input>
	<input type="date" name="edate" required="required"></input>
	<input type="submit" name="saveit" value="Generate"></input>
	
</form>

Sounds like you are comparing datetimes against date only values, in which case you need to compare just the date portions of the datetime values

... WHERE DATE(ClockingInDate) <= '$edate1' AND DATE(ClockingOutDate) >= '$sdate1'
