Fwd: RE: Package sqldf in R and dates manipulation


Sent from Samsung tablet.

Dear all,
I recently read the book “ R data preperation and manipulation using sqldf package”  by Djoni Darmawikarta 
However, I have a problem with manipulation of dates using this package, I do not get the expected results. Do I need to install some packages  to be able to subset the data by dates in sqldf?
I am not getting Djoni Darmawikarta email address.
Please see the practice data attached and advise,
Kind regards,
