Please check this solution for syntax and method. MySQL didn't give
errors or warnings and results were as required.
$result = mysql_query("select * from plant.eqpt where date_online <=
$checkdate && $checkdate <= date_offline order by type, size");
or can use AND in lieu of &&
or can place where conditions in brackets as
where (date_online <= $checkdate && $checkdate <= date_offline)
