Question: Solved: AC2007 Find Date()-1 And Date()-2 in Query

Hello, I am having trouble finding the previous 2 days totals in a query. I have a totals query with the following fields:
JobID - Criteria: Between 500 And 599
TotalProcessed - calculated field, grouped on Sum. sums field entry
ProdDate - Short Date - Grouped on Where - Criteria Date()-1 Or Date()-2

Today's Julian Date is 199 so query should give me Julian Dates 197 & 198, but instead returns Julian Dates 188 - 196.

Thank you for your help!

First the background: We are gradually deploying Office 2007, but not everyone in the agency has it. I have both 2003 and 2007 installed on my system, but I do my work in 2003, and none of our databases have actually been converted to 2007 format (at least, none that I work with). There are occasionally people who use 2007 when viewing databases, but I don't know if any of the people who are working in this particular database are using 2007. The problem is reproducible in 2003 and so I've been trying to fix it here. The query behind the problem report used to work. It has been a problem for several months (it is run monthly, and every month for the past five they've had problems with it) and I've finally gotten to the root of the actual issue.

The purpose of the report is to generate invoice for outstanding loans. The DateNextPayment is a calculated field based on the payment plan for the loan. It is calculated using a function in the query named qryGetSitesDDInvoices1. This is the function that is called (I did not write this function, I'm supporting this db long after the original writer has left):
Function DateNextPayment(PaymentSchedule As String, DateFirstPayment As Date, Balance As Currency)

I believe this is a really easy thing to do but i can not get it to work,

I have a table that contains a name and the dates that they are on holiday. i am wanting to have a query that will show me everyone who is on holiday in February.

I thought this was simple but i have not been able to get it to work, i think i am missing something really really simple.

I have attached a copy of the table, the table is part of a college project and all data is fictional.

The attachment is zipped so it could be attached


Answer:Solved: Access 2007: date Query

James, to find all dates for February can be done in 2 ways, you can use from the 1st (startdate) to the 29th or 28th (eneddate) and then type in the Query Criteria Row
between 01/02/2008 and 29/02/2008
or you could use the Date part or date Format to extract February form you date and then compare it to February, but that only works if you have one years worth of data.

Hi to All!

I have a database of vendors. 2 of the fields are "Exp_Month" & "Exp_Yr". The data for "Exp_Month" is entered as "JAN" etc. The data entered for "Exp_Yr" is "01", etc. This was uploaded from a program called ADPICS and imported into Access.

I am trying to generate a report that will give me all vendors who will expire in 90 days. I was tying to make this happen in a query then would base my report off the query. But I'm having trouble with proper syntax for the date and year.

I have a Users DB that I cannot make any changes on it. One of the fields has a Date field. I need to run a query on that table to create reports, but the query creates multiple records for the same user with the only difference in the Date filed. I need to have only the records with the latest date in the Date field.

Is there a way to set a query that does this?


Answer:Solved: access 2003 query by last date

You need 2 queries, the first has the userrecordId and date fields, set Totals>Grouping the userrecordid Grouped and the date set to Max.
Then in the second query you want the main table and the 1st query joined by the userrecordid and the date.
So the first query finds the last and the second show the data from just that record.

I have an issue I've looked at 50 different ways from Sunday and am stuck on the resolution. I am tracking metrics for a project, stored on SharePoint, which I dump into Excel and use Access 2007 for my reports.

The report has multiple date fields, i.e.: R4RPlan_Date, R4RActual_Date, BusPlan_Date, BusActual_Date, etc... on table RICEFW_Dates.

What I am trying to do is set a parameter to query all the fields for a specific date, i.e. <[Report Date], without having to run multiple parameter queries. The end result will be a count of the number of dates in each field meeting the criteria.

The problem comes in when teams complete their criteria before it was planned, i.e., R4RPlan_Date = 3/23/12, R4RActual_Date = 2/6/12, <[Report Date] = 2/22/12.

If I add <[Report Date] as a criteria for the R4RPlan_Date, I will get all the plan dates I'm looking for, but I will not get all of the actuals since the plan date is after the specified [Report Date], but the actual was completed w/in the frame of the parameter. If I put the [Report Date] parameter in the R4RActual_Date field, I get the correct number of actuals, but since I am querying the field with lesser amount of data, I do not get all of the planned dates which meet the [Report Date] parameter. So if the plan date is greater than the parameter date, I want it to show up IF the actual date is not null, otherwise it should follow the parameter criteria (<[Report Date]).

Hey guys,
I have a question about coding and setting an excel file to send emails. I am using an excel file to track maintenance work orders and I would like to get an email each day for each work order that is requested to be finished on that days date. I have attached the excel file I am using, and the column that is important is C, "Date Needed" - If that date is today's date, the cell turns red and I would also like to get email notification about it. A separate email for each cell that matches today's date.

Also, if possible, I would like for it to look at all the sheets, not just the current month's sheet. For example, if a work order was filed in July but wasn't needed until September, I would still like to get the email reminding me that it needs to be finished on xx date in September.

I have attached the excel file I want to use.

I have searched all over this forum and others and have found many posts similar to this, but I am not a great manipulator of code, so I cannot get any of the other solutions to work.

You should not have the FundID and the Nav in the query because their "Grouping" stops the Max from working.
Unless of course you want the max date for each fund.
You should have just the EffDate and then create a query based on that query and the table joined by the date to bring in the other data.

Long time since I posted here.

Basically, I have an Access database which calculates the cost of jobs by multiplying the number of hours worked by the Labour Rate.
The labour rate changes over time, but we need to keep historical data - i.e. When the labour rate changes I can't just go and change it in the query, I have to amend the formula so it uses the correct labour rate for jobs done on certain dates.

At present, in my query (CALC) I'm using nested Iifs, as follows (note: dates are in UK format):

LabourCost: IIf([JobDate]>=#01/09/2005# And [JobDate]<#01/04/2007#,[HoursWorked]*9.52,IIf([JobDate]>=#01/04/2007# And [JobDate]<#01/06/2007#,[HoursWorked]*9.82,IIf([JobDate]>=#01/06/2007# And [JobDate]<#01/09/2007#,[HoursWorked]*9.85,IIf([JobDate]>=#01/09/2007# And [JobDate]<#01/01/2008#,[HoursWorked]*9.93,IIf([JobDate]>=#01/01/2008# And [JobDate]<#24/01/2008#,[HoursWorked]*11.62,IIf([JobDate]>=#24/01/2008# And [JobDate]<#01/04/2008#,[HoursWorked]*11.68,[HoursWorked]*11.73))))))

The liklihood is that these labour rate changes are going to become more frequent, so I want to scrap the Iifs and use a table instead.

I've already set up a (unlinked) table called LabourRateStd with the following fields:
ID (autonumber)
Date1 (Date)
Date2 (Date)
LabourRate (currency)

The dates and the values have been entered as per the Iif statement above. For the final Date 2, I've just entered a date way off in the future.

HI guys,

I am using Microsoft Excel 2003 and am trying to create a scheduler for my work place.
What I have to do is allow the user to enter data in the input sheet (by input meaning Dates) and then accordingly scan the schedule sheet and find the date entered on the input sheet, following which print the appropriate schedule opposite that date for that particular project.

For Example .....
If a person is working on a project called apple in cell D (effectively making it the 3rd project in the list) and the user enters the project start and end dates as 5th June and 13th June. So what I have to do is scan the Schedule sheet for these dates and enter the appropriate text of Start and End before these dates in the D column (i.e under the respective project).

How to do this I am clueless as I am a complete idiot as far as excel is concerned. SO any idea or any sort of help as to how this can be achieved will help.

The sheet must be automated as far as possible and there are about 25 to 30 projects which need to be updated into the sheet before the final output.

Thanks in advance.

Hi There

I can't seem to get this line of macro to work properly

If ActiveCell<=Range("C4") then......(Some lines get deleted)

Both the active cell and Range("C4") have dates in them. This line of code does not work properly. It does't matter if the date in the Active Cell is greater than the date in Range("C4"), the macro still executes the next lines of code and still deletes lines that it should not delete.

What am I doing wrong??


Answer:Solved: Date: VBA - One date less than another date

This would happen if either or both of the cells being evaluated are not dates or if the ActiveCell is blank. Try this test to see if this is the case; in either case you should use the DateValue function when evaluating ActiveCell vs C4. This is because the VBA interpretation of a date is much more forgiving than the Excel interpretation. VBA will interpret anything that looks like a date as a date e.g. " 12/21/2013" (with the leading spaces) will be interpreted by Excel as text whilst VBA will recognise it as a date.

Sub test()
If IsDate(ActiveCell) = False Then
MsgBox (ActiveCell.Address & " is not a Date")
ElseIf IsDate(Range("C4")) = False Then
MsgBox ("Cell C4 is not a Date")
If DateValue(ActiveCell) <= DateValue(Range("C4")) Then [B] [COLOR=red]'use this in your macro[/COLOR][/B]

Answer:Date Format Query

Hi,The reason for your problem is that Excel did not recognize as a date, and it has left it as text.Because it is text, Excel can't display the date in different formats.The solution is to create a date that Excel recognizes, out of the text.If you have a date ( in cell A11 for example, put this formula in the adjacent cell:=DATE(RIGHT(A11,2),MID(A11,4,2),LEFT(A11,2))The formula can be dragged down alongside columns of dates as required.Copy the new date cells and use PasteSpecial - Paste Values, to paste the new Excel dates back into the cells with the original dates. Format the cells as required, e.g., dd/mm/yyRegards

123456 Rev. 3/3/03
123456 Rev. 4/4/03
888888 Rev. 5/5/03
999999 Rev. 2/2/03
999999 Rev. 6/6/03

After the query, I want these results:

123456 Rev. 4/4/03
888888 Rev. 5/5/03
999999 Rev. 6/6/03

I am looking to run a query on a date field to begin on a date say Monday 08/25/2008 and having only every other Monday show up or be eliminated (whichever is easiest).

My data is split into two tables one with the (Dates) in one field and (days) in another going out several years and then the (start date) in another table.

[Date][Date Tbl],[Day][Date Tbl] comparing to [Bi-Weekly Start Date][Team_Mbrs] and showing [ID][Team_Mbrs], the employee.

I am attempting to show the days off an employee will have when they start a day off and have every other off. I hope this makes sense.

I have one question about Date() in Access:
One customer ordering one product so there is Date Order (2-Jan-02) in table.
I want to know how can I make one query which can check that the period of time from Date Order to Now is over 2 years or not. I have tried using Date() and Now() but could not.
Please help me
Thanks a lot!

Answer:Date query in MS Access 2000


the following code snippet will return the number of days between OrderDate and date now.

Sub test()

Dim datenow As Date
Dim OrderDate As Date

datenow = Now
OrderDate = DateValue("1 January, 2002")

MsgBox DateDiff("d", OrderDate, datenow)
End Sub

this will return 499 days

you can then calculate if the elapsed time is greater than 2 years by comparing the result of the date function to 730 days (2years)

if (DateDiff("d", OrderDate, datenow) < 730 then
do something
do someting else
end if

If you use the yyyy interval argument for the datediff function the returned answer possibly will not be the result you expect.

For example using the values above
DateDiff("yyyy", OrderDate, datenow)

will return 2 years

Hope this helps,

Hey all, I have created a database that I need to retrieve information from a table (linked table with another database) based on the user typing in a start date and an end date.

The original table has the date fields as text (accepts date and time).

So far I have this in the query;

>=[Start Date] & "*" And <=[End Date] & "*"

This works if the data in the original table is in the same month e.g.
if i want to retrieve data from 18/02/2013 to 22/02/2013 then it works, however if I cross over months e.g. 28/01/2013 to 01/02/2013 then it brings up a blank table without any data.

I have also worked with BETWEEN [Start Date] & "*" AND [End Date] & "*" but this doesn't seem to work either.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated

Help! I'm using Microsoft access 2003. I have clients that are booked in for a block of ten treatment sessions. I can only schedule SMS reminders for them a week in advance. I need to create a query that allows me to see who is due for an SMS reminder in the next two weeks ie who has a treamtent coming up. Treatments are entered in as Treatment 1, Treatment 2 etc. When I add all the 10 treatments on as fields in a query in design view and enter the code <Date()+14 for all of them, it comes up with nothing. However, the query works if I only have Treatments 1 and 2 added, as all clients will have these treatments coming up (they aren't up to the later treatments yet). Is there a way that the fields can be searched as an "or" rather than "and" ? Do I need to change the code? I don't want to have to run a separate query for all ten treatments!

I need to be able to count the numbers of arrivals and passes for each date in a date range entered by the user.

So, I just need an expression that effectively combines the two fields. It is not an either/or situation - the item could pass on the same day it arrives.

The result I'm after would include each date in the date range even if there were no arrivals or passes on that date. So if I included parameter criteria and the user entered the date range 15/05/06 to 20/05/06, the result should look something like:

The coin cell battery on the motherboard that keeps time while the system is powered off is probably dead.  Not too surprising given that the D600 is about 15 years old at this point.  If you open the system up, it should be easy to find, so just note the type of battery, e.g. CR2032, and then buy that type of battery at any grocery/convenience store.  Should only be about $2-3.

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Help! I am using a Seagate Central 4TB NAS drive attached to my router via Ethernet. It has been working fine so far for all kinds of file activities. But whenever I modify a file in one of its folders, the creation date for the file also updates and is
changed to the same time as the new modified date.
Maybe relevant details:
I can move/copy folders to the drive and they maintain their created dates.
It happens for both a private user share on the NAS and for the Public share on it.
It happens for at least image files and text files.
I am able to edit files across two computers on the network just fine, the create date stays the same.
This happens from a new Windows 10 machine and Vista machine both.
I notice sometimes the date created seems to stay same until I access the file the next time.
I can't update the NAS firmware because of error.

Hi all
Have started up a new machine and upgraded from Access 2000 to 2003 and transferred our database over. We have just over 5,000 records in the contact table which we update daily with the current date as various repeat contacts are made.
The relevant field is set to ‘Long date’.
Every evening we have a Word 2003 file that completes a mail merge to a database query that pulls records with the current date. That query obtains its data from the contacts table. Or at least, it used to.
Since the change something has gone wrong and I cannot sort out what. The query will not let me use the =Date() function in the criteria row. As a test I set up a dummy database with a simple table and a single query. In the query grid I added =Date() in the criteria row and low and behold it worked. So obviously there is a problem in the original table. Now I am lost. Does anyone have any pointers please?


Answer:Using the =Date() function in Access 2003 query

That is odd I have just answered another poster with date problems.
can you open your New table and check the Actual dates in the field ensuring that you expand it>
Does it have the "Time" in the field with the date, you may have to change the Date/Time format to Short or long time to see it?
Has the Date field always been "Long" date rather than Short date?
Also try in the Query in a new Column
Format([Your Date Field],"dd/mm/yyyy") and put the date() criteria in that column instead.
I have just checked it and it works whereas Long date with a time element won't.

Now, I need to delete all the records for a particular day (One of their HD's failed, and they had to restore the data and lost a day, but the entries are still in the database, and can not be re-entered until the old entries are deleted).

How do I structure a query to delete all the records for a particular day? Preferably, I would like a SELECT statement first, just to check that the records found correspond to the delete criteria, and then the DELETE statement.

It looks like the 31 March deadline for the latest Edge promotions is the date of invoice rather than the date of order. Given Lenovo's reported long build time and slow delivery (= late invoice), I suspect that ording now from the Lenovo web site will see an invoice date outside the qualifying period. Even a dealer who says he can 'get one in' may not deliver and invoice until April or beyond.

Hi all,

I'm new to Windows 7 (Home Premium 32-bit) and I just can't figure out what's going on here! Basically I want my short date format to be dd/mm/yyyy (UK format) e.g. 05/11/2010, but when I key a date into Excel 2002 it is appearing as 05 11 2010. In Control Panel I have the short date format set to ddd dd/MM/yyyy and the example is shown as Fri 05/11/2010, but in Excel all the date formats are shown with space separators, e.g. 14 03 2001! I don't think it's an Excel problem though as in Windows Task Scheduler the dates are shown with spaces there e.g. '19:25 on Mon 01 11 2010'. The date by the clock though is shown correctly with slash separators!

I know in Windows XP you can select the date separator from a drop-down list, but this option seems to be absent in Windows 7. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International in the registry, sDate was set to a space, but changing that to a slash (and rebooting) didn't fix the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas please what's wrong and how to fix it?


Answer:Date format using space as date separator rather than forward slash!


The option you're after is controlled from within Excel. If you right-click the cell(s) in question you can select 'format cells' and under 'Date' you can select the desired format.

I'm working on a spreadsheet that lists monthly recurring expenses. I have one cell on the sheet listing the current date (using the "=Now()" formula), but I'd like to have the other cells change at certain times throughout the month.

For example, if one cell currently says "April-15", when the actual date reads "April-16", the respective cell would change to "June-15". This way, whenever the spreadsheet is viewed the next recurring payment date will be seen.

I know this is the wrong tool for something like this - I'm using SharePoint at the office with a calendar list with workflows that shoot off emails in a much better put together format - but this is just for home use and I'd like to keep it all in one document if possible.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Excel 2010: Cell Date Change with Current Date

The way I read it was that you have fixed recurring payment dates, so you just want to know the next date based on the day today. Hope the attached might assist.
You need to list the payment dates somewhere and then the formula looks up the next date. You might want to look up today plus 1 (or something) to reflect the fact that if the next payment date is today, there's a good chance you'll not get any unplanned payments on that run.

Somehow the date on one of my old Excel files has turned from 1999-10-04 (i.e. October 4, 1999) to 4617-04-11. How can I change all the rest of the incorrect dates back to what they should be?

This question was asked by someone several years ago, but I did not find the complete answer.

I need to know how to create a QBF using a date range as part of the criteria.

I have a form to run a query. The form has a combo box to limit "approved" or "pending" “new” purchase orders (PO) (criteria one), but I would like to add a second criteria for POs created between "07/01/2009" and "07/06/2009" (criteria two).

I want the end-users to be able to select the date range (enter the start date and end date). I don't want to limit their selection.

I know how to use the date range in "Design View" of a query (ex: >=[Start Date] And <=[End Date], or,
Between #07/01/2009# and #07/06/2009#) but I don't know how to implement that into the Form.

I know I need to put something like the following in the query criteria field for PO_Created_Date:

Between [Forms]![Formname]![BeginningDate] And [Forms]![Formname]![Text_EndDate]

But how to make it work in the form?

Please help!



Answer:Access 2003: Query by Form using a date range

Yuan, welcome to the Forum.
You appear to understand the query requirement, especially the "Between [Forms]![Formname]![BeginningDate] And [Forms]![Formname]![Text_EndDate]" part.
So which part don't you understand?
as long as the you put in the name of your Form in the Fromname brackets and you have 2 fields on the form called BeginningDate and Text_EndDate that Criteria will work.

In Access, I am trying to develop a process for generating a unique client number that follows a very specific formula: XXX - XXXX - X - XXXX. The first group should represent the quarter and year when the client is first introduced (non-standard year: Feb-Jan). The second group should be a unique, sequential ID number with leading zeros (missing numbers won't matter and leading zeros seems impossible, so I'm planning to use a DMax calculation on the form that generates a sequential number). The third number represents the client's initial program phase ID. The final number relates to the grant contract ID.

I have generated the number with the following in a Select query:

UniqueNumber: DatePart("q",DateAdd("m",-1,[MonthStart])) & Format([MonthStart],"yy") & "-" & [SeqNum] & "-" & [InitialPhaseID] & "-" & [ContractID]

The table already has a primary key, but since I am required to generate client numbers in this format, I want the UniqueNumber to be saved and searchable. This field never needs to change once the original record is saved. I've tried an Append query, but can't make it work. I assume it's related to the fact that I'm combining Date and Number fields, not to mention the DatePart function. I consistently get a key violation error. Any thoughts on how I can proceed?

I will need to combine two tables on a weekly basis. Table 1 has the Product ID and the date and some important data. Table 2 has the Product ID, the date, and some other important data. For table 1, I only need to append the table once a month because the value needed stays consistent. However, for table 2, the values needed change on a daily basis.

How do I create a query that will command you for the date from table 2 and take the values from the month on Table 1?

The ID is not unique in either table, but it is unique for the date in each table.

I'm trying to query records based on date and time. We have a database that we print receipts off based on the date we received these records. The end-users of this database have requested that we add a time function to these receipts so that when they print receipts, they are not wasting paper with duplicate receipts that have been printed earlier that day.

Right now, the query prompts the user to enter a "From Date" and a "To Date." What can I add in query so that in the "From Date" also asks for time in military format (or regular, doesn't matter).

Any help is appreciated.

Hello. I have a cell on my spread sheet which calculates an earliest date due. The cell references other cells to achieve this and looks like this '=C51+(F8*7)' where cell C51 is a date field in the format DD/MM/CCYY and contains the date 26/12/2015. And cell F8 is a number field which contains the value '4'. This value '4' is indicating a number of weeks. So the calculation (F8*7) gets me the number of days and I then add those days to the date in cell C51 to get 23/01/2016.I want this cell to output the current date if the calculation above results in a date that is in the past. Can anyone tell me if there is a simple way to achieve this? Thank you.

Answer:Excel: Substitute a past date with the current date

If I understand you correctly, this should get you what you want:=IF("your calculation"< TODAY(),TODAY(),"your calculation")However, the TODAY() will update every day to always show the current date, assuming "your calculation" results in a date that is in the past.In other words, it will not lock in the first date it calculates. It will always display "today's" date.Is that what you want to see?One other issue: As explained at the link below, the TODAY() function is "volatile". That means that is will recalculate every time the sheet calculates, even if none of the arguments have changed. A large number of volatile functions can slow a worksheet down. and Non-Volatile Functions

Excel supports the concept of a volatile function, that is,
one whose value cannot be assumed to be the same from one
moment to the next even if none of its arguments (if it
takes any) has changed. Excel reevaluates cells that contain
volatile functions, together with all dependents, every time
that it recalculates. For this reason, too much reliance on
volatile functions can make recalculation times slow. Use them

The following Excel functions are volatile:

Answer:Excel Date shortcut posts proper date and then changes

Hey Ron,

This should be a fairly simple one. I'd hazard a guess and say the May-16 is the month and year rather than the month and day.
If you click the format drop down as shown below, and click the last option for more formatting options.

In the box that pops up, navigate to Custom using the left hand panel to navigate.
Here you can make your own (or use a preset if you wish) format to suit your needs.

Here is a quick key to help you get by:
dd = Day in Number format
ddd = Day in Short text
dddd = Day in Long text
mm = Month in Number format
mmm = Month in Short text
mmmm = Month in Long text
yy = year in 2 digits
yyyy = year in 4 digits

You can separate these with pretty much whatever you want.
All of this data is input into the "Type" field as shown in the picture above.

See the picture for an example, Ironically it is May 16th today so it will appear the same as your issue does, but rest assured, as long as you have those D's in there, it will display the day!

Best of luck,
Let us know how you get on,

I have a file that lists a Julian date of, for instance, 37573. How do I convert that into something like 11/06/02?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Julian Date--How to convert to calendar date in Excel

That's not a Julian date, Beth.

That is actually a date value that Excel provides.

That's how many days it's been since 1/1/1900.

To change it to a real date, you should be able to select that cell or entire column, hit Format-Cell, Number tab, and choose Date, and then any one of the date formats.

Julian dates are what numbered day of the year. For instance, January 3, 2002 would be 3.

I have a large report of application forms which have been submitted including the date when they were submitted however the dates are formatted incorrectly.

1. Although the cell formatting is dd/mm/yyyy the data is being shown in mm/dd/yyyy which means the dates are incorrect (e.g. 2nd January would read as 1st February.)
2. As a result of this dates which are passed the 12th of a month are not accepted as dates (it reads the day figure as months and there is no 13th month etc)

Hi there

I know how to do add a criteria to a Query. For example in the QBE pane in design view in the criteria row I enter this statement: Between [Start Date] And [End Date]. When I open up the form that is bound to the query, a message box pops up and I enter the required dates and I get the required data that is between the dates that I specify. However, I'm now finding out that this method is now becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way that I can have 2 unbound controls - one for the start date and the other for the end date in a criteria form. This way I input the dates I want for a particular customer and the form with the required data shows up. For example, I have already developed a criteria form for customers. I have an unbound combo box control that has customer names and when I click on a particular customer name, all the data for that customer is displayed in a form. In the row source of the unbound combo box control there is a SELECT .... FROM ... statement. I also have a button next to the unbound combo box control that opens up the form for that particular customer. Now I want to add two more Unbound controls in the criteria form, one for Start Date and another for End Date.

This way I can select a customer from the customer combo Box, select the start start date from the start date combo box and the end date from the second combo box control and get the desired data for that particular customer between the specified dates. I have attempted to do this bu... Read more
