Parameter Date validation

Hello, In my report I am getting the ‘FROM’ date and ‘TO’ date as parameters .Is it possible to validate the ‘TO’ date to check if it is always greater than or equal to FROM date.
This can be handled by the application source code.
But I would like to know if sql server reporting services is having the option to do this validation
what is wrong with simply
select ….
from ….
where yourDateCol between @from and @to _______________________________________________

FYI, it is better to handle on application code than using that on RS side, check what Spirit suggested. Satya SKJ

Spirit, No, if the ‘to’ date is < ‘from’ date then it will not give any records. Anyway thanks for your replies.. Regards,
