#7546 closed (fixed)

Exact lookups on DateTimeField() with object does not work

Reported by: john_scott Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


In there are several examples of passing in objects (notice it's not a datetime.datetime() object) as lookup parameters on a DateTimeField(). See for one such example:


The only way I've been able to get the intended behavior is through the use of the range lookup:

today =, 6, 26)
tomorrow =, 6, 27)
        entry__pub_date__range=(today, tomorrow))

I'm assuming this is just a documentation issue, rather than a query bug.

Speaking to the author of this documentation (Malcolm wishes to remain nameless), this is indeed a documentation bug. Patch to follow.
