Adding time range to "Format as Table"

I have Grafana site that I want to add a “Format as Table” view that graphs the returned data. The data I am getting back is for the whole table and not for the specified date range.

here is the select that will work and graph all data:

   status as metric,
   count(*) as "num"
from activity
where gc101 = 1
group by 1
order by 1,2

So, in order to try to add the time range we added this:

and starttime > ${__from:date}
and starttime < ${__to:date}

here is the result from that:

What can i do to add a date range to a “Format as Table” view?

I am very comfortable with SQL so I would prefer to work with SQL rather than the point and click grafana interface. Is there some mode in grafana that makes working in SQL easier? The context of that is: grafana seems to throw away my changes when I change dropdowns.
