This is another case where ORACLE and InterBase SQL dialects are different.

In ORACLE, it is SYSDATE,
in InterBase, it is TODAY.

// make the SQL dependent on type of DBMS

if AppLibrary.Database.DriverName = 'ORACLE' then
  SQL.Add ('and entry_date < SYSDATE')
else
  SQL.Add ('and entry_date < "TODAY"');
end;

// SQL to query the date in ORACLE
select to_char(sysdate, 'DD-Mon-YYYY HH24:MI:SS') as "Current Time" from MyTable;
