Access - Start Date and End Date in a Criteria form

Question: Access - Start Date and End Date in a Criteria form

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 but without success. Is this possible to do?? If so can someone please tell me how to do it - BE SPECIFIC SINCE I'M NO EXPERT HERE.

I have a form and I want to have a combo box that will Give today’s Date 5/1/2005 as a selection.
That would be today’s date.
If I select this date it will place this Date in another field That I have formatted as a short Date.
This date must remain in this box even if I close the program.
I tried to use a query but when I go to the combo box it shows a blank cell.
It does enter today’s date in the cell I want it to but you cannot view it as with other combo boxes.

Answer:Access-Getting Date in a form Via Combo Box

i'm not sure how to do the date with a combobox like you mentioned above, but here is another way to do this:

Private Sub txtDateCreated_Click()

'if there is not a date in this field, then when the user clicks in the box, the current date is displayed.

If IsNull(Forms![frm1]![txtDateCreated]) Then
Forms![frm1]![txtDateCreated] = Date
End If

Put a label near the text box saying something like 'click to enter today's date'.

i like this method because instead of needing both a combobox and a text box, you only need a text box.

i am assuming that your combobox would only contain the current date. in that case, you don't need it. is that right or were you going to display other values in the combobox along with the current date?

I have a number of problems with a database that I am creating, one of which is how to automatically add a date to a field in a form.

This is a database that will be used by multiple users, and one of the fields is called "Date last updated". I have imported the data and locked the fields that shouldn't be changed (thanks to a reply to a previous post on here). I thought it would be straightforward just to add =NOW() to the field on the form, but that doesn't make any difference. I have also tried setting the default value of the field in the original table to =NOW() and "binding" the field in the table to that. Doesn't work either! Does anyone know how I can do this?

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.

Firstly, let me apologise, I'm a complete Access noob & am trying to teach myself as I've got no one to help me in person.

I'm trying to build a Time Sheet database that should record daily duties via an entry form:

This form updates an underlying table:

The date field of the "Work_Hours" table is:

However, workers get paid fortnightly and all their entitlements, allowances & overtime are calculated on these fortnightly periods. To be more specific, the workers are paid for a certain amount of overtime for each fortnight upfront & when they exceed that, then they are entitled to all excess time back in TIME OFF. So it's pretty important that each day's duties are assigned to the correct fortnight period so that their overtime & so-forth are calculated correctly.

Each fortnightly period is numbered according to year. For example, each year there are 26 fortnightly periods, so as an example today (3rd October 2013) falls in period 2013-19 (23rd September 2013 to 6th October 2013).

I've created a table called:

Which has the following Fields:
"ID" (Auto-number)
"Period_Start" (date - the first day of each new fortnight period)
"Period_Number" (number - eg: 2013-19)

I have linked my calendar 11.0 to my text boxes, and then to my query criteria. Everything works, except after I click on the Calendar to choose my end date and it shows up on the text box thats linked to the query, the information from the query doesn't automatically show up on my Form in other text box I have linked for results (d*count funtion, etc).

BUT, when I go into design view, and then back to form view, the Data is Updated!

So I am very confused as to how to set it up after I input the end date to automatically update instead of hitting the design view and back to form view for it to update.

Not sure if a "refresh" or "after update" function needs to be in place? I hope I explained it correctly! Thank you!

Column B was reduced down to 1 or 0 for the name match and column D was the dates.I could use this to solve my problem but I wouild wind up with an incredibly large sheet of data to cover the 12 months and the 20 names for which I need to pull data.

Answer:Need help using date as criteria in vba excel sheet

First, a posting tip:Please click on the blue line at the end of this post and read the instructions on how to post VBA code in this forum so that it is easier for us to read. As for your question, my first thought was to use a Helper Column in your sheet and then filter on the Helper Column.e.g. Put =MONTH(M6) in an empty column and drag it down. I used 12, but it doesn't matter. You can even hide the column if you don't want to see it.Then your code would look like this:
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$6:$AQ$1000").AutoFilter Field:=12, Criteria1:=Month(Date)
Since the Helper Column would always contain the current month number for Dates within the current Month, those numbers would be a match for the result of Month(Date) within VBA.Then I thought about it for a second longer and decided that you can't be the first one to want to filter on the current month. I used my excellent Googling skills and found the following at:
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$6:$AQ$1000").AutoFilter Field:=13, _
Criteria1:=">=" & DateSerial(Year(Date), Month(Date), 1), _
Criteria2:="<=" & DateSerial(Year(Date), Month(Date) + 1, 1) - 1There's no need for a Helper Column when that method is used. What is it doing is looking for dates that are >= to first of this month and <= the day before the first day of next month. In other words, any date within the current month.Assuming you choose the VBA-only method, please keep the concept of a Helper Column in... Read more

Looking for some help as I am really stuck.

I have a form where the user enters data and then when they hit a button an update query is performed based on the record ID. However for some reason the query is not pulling the record id through when the button is pressed.

The query runs fine when the button is clicked as Ive tested it and if I have the form open and run the query manually it pulls through the recordID and works perfectly so I don't understand why it's not working.

I have noticed however if I run the query when the form is in design mode it doesn't prompt me for the value??

It's probably something glaringly obvious but I've done this so many times and never had an issue.

1. I have a query already built that doesn't have any criteria built into it, because the criteria can change with the type of information that a user is looking for.

2. Rather than have users who are not familiar with Access trying to input the criteria they need on a table into the design view of a query I would like to utilize a form.

3. I would like to find out if it is possible for a user to enter the criteria they are looking for in fields on a form and have a table open with the records that match that criteria when the user clicks submit on the form. (To me it is kind of like parameter queries. But, I just want it in a form instead having the query asking the user one question at a time.)

I have a subform with information drawn from a query. The main form will have multiple entries on each day. The query is based on the date entered in the form so that as new entries are made on the main form, all of the entries with the same date show up in the subform. Right now, the subform updates after the record is completed, but I would like for it to update as soon as I enter the date. How do I do that?

Answer:Solved: Access - Subform update as soon as criteria entered in form

Hi guys

Am having pain with the definition of a referece to a control that I can use in a query:

Mainform has subform and

Subform has sub-sub form

When I'm in sub-sub form, I wish to take 4 values from it for the current record and enter them into a temporary table so I can do stuff with them.
The Main form is called frmClients
The Subform is called frmClientsProjects
The SubSub form is called frmClientsProjectSubform

I need therefore to run a query that says:

"Make a new table and put in it values "A", "B" and "C" from frmClientProjectSubform WHERE "A" = value of Control "Z" on frmClientsProjectSubform

Im using Z as the current [Forms]![frmClientsProjectSubform] record identifier.

I thought it should be [Forms]![frmClientsProjectSubform]![Z] but its throwing a parameter dialogue box up asking for [Forms]![frmClientsProjectSubform]![Z].

What might be wrong here?

Hope you can help.

Been struggling with this one for hours! My boss wants to know if any of the form data was changed, I don't need to know what was changed, just that something was changed by populating a date everytime a change was made. (Probably should also include who changed it by using Environ("username"))

I have been looking for code all over the web and keep seeing that I should use the "Before Update" event but when I use this it populates the text box with a date just by simply going to the form and looking at it (Not what I need) I thought that using the "Data Changed" would work but I can't get it to do anything.

My text box for the date is "Data Changed" and the text box for who changed it is "Changed By"

Does anyone know how to do this with code, macro,???

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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. I think the only option is to find a dealer who unequivocally has current stock.Can anyone shed any light on the likely position. I do, though, wonder about trying to take advantage of Lenovo Cashback at all, given the horror stories reported here.

Answer:Edge 31 March promotion deadline - order date or invoice date?

My experience with cashback is a deathly silence from Lenovo to emails asking for progress on the cash or even recognition that there has been a registration for cashback...Currently considering giving Lenovo some publicity on the matter.Unless you have a lot of time to possibly get no where I would steer clear of the alleged cashback scheme...

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.

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 am looking to set up a macro or formula that basically inserts the current time when a cell is filled SO:

when a2:a100 is populated with any thing then the corresponding C cell will be populated with the time.


when e2:e1000 is populated wiith anything then the corresponding D Cell will be populated.

Currently I am using this macro.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A6:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 4)
.Value = Time
End With
End If
End Sub

which works great for the A and C cells

but it does not work for the other one.. how do i add and modify this so all my needs are met.
I need another 2 sets of 2 macros accross the sheet for time entry.

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)

I have tried to use the text to columns function but that makes no difference and I have tried to extract just the dates but I've had no luck.

Can anyone help, I've attached a small sample of the data.

Wait for the more knowledgeable to report but a new CMOS Battery would seem to be in order.
Easy to replace and only £1, or so, to buy, in almost any Supermarket.
About the size of a 10p piece on the motherboard, with a number like CM032. Don't take it out until you are ready to replace it.
Get the replacement > Take the old one out > Instal the new one and, with luck, that should be it.

Excel 2013 and Windows 10 Pro

Today is May-14

Date format is set to show: Mar-16
Pressing Ctrl+; shows: 05 14 2016 in the cell
and it converts to: May-16 after I exit that cell.

Any ideas as to how to fix this or why it adds 2 days to the date?

I don't do much on computer now because of health but when I do and there is a problem, I know some of the experts are here.

Thank you in advance, Ron

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,

Hi All,
I am using LUMIA 1320 that has Lumia Cyan.
Sometimes the time and date is getting reset to a specific date, i.e. 22nd May 2014
Due to this all reminder, alarms and new messages are not coming in sync.
Is this a virus? Does it have come from an app. If that is the case then it questions Microsoft App policies...
Anyone who has encountered this issue and has done something to eradicate it let me know.

Answer:Why is my phones time and date getting reset to a specific date?

First, windows phone can never get a virus. Its the safest platform after iOS . And no, a particular app can't affect the system's time and date. I think your should try to manually set the time and date in the settings. And see if it works.

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.

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:

Hi all!
Before I ask my question I just want to let everyone know that this site has been a great help.

So, I have a TextBox that needs to accept a date and time. Simple enough. However, the data that I need to collect has to always have a date and time but when I use General Date it will accept either Date or Time or both as its designed to do so.

I have tried setting

Format as " m/d/yyyy h:nn:ss ampm "
Input Mask as " 90/90/0000\ 99:00:00\ >LL;0;_ "

and tinkered with me.textbox.format() as an if statment

But this leads to the other issue that most of this data will be pasted into the form in either of the below formats.

Any help is appreciated and thank you all.

Answer:General Date Forced To Have Date And Time

So.... I think I figured it out. Been testing it and it seems to result in the way i need it to. So I have the Form/Table set to Date/Time Field formatted as a General Date. This will at least validate that the information inputted in the text-box is a date/time of some sort. Then I added the below code to make it follow a validation rule of sort. So far it seems regardless of the way information is pasted in the end result is always MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AMPM
If Me.YourTextBox Like "**/**/**** **:**:** **" Then
Cancel = False
MsgBox ("Please enter a date and time in this format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM")
Cancel = True
End If
I'm still open to suggestions if there is a more efficient way of doing this. If not I hope this information will be found helpful to others.

When viewing the software downloads page, all of the update dates are newer than the release dates.  And they are all very close to current date (Jun 20).  Running the HP tool doesn't show any update is needed.  So I'm puzzled. Are all these drivers/patches really out of date or is the earlier release date still the correct one.  Surprised that every available update shows close to current date.    

Answer:Update Date does not Match Release Date

Hi: The date you see next to the actual driver exe file is the correct driver date. The 'update' date you see is because HP redesigned the website and had to upload many of the drivers again.

How come Windows7 reports "date created" as "time1" and "date modified" as "time2" where "time2" is a time earlier than time1?

Answer:date-created VS date-modified on Windows 7

Good question, but it does not effect the performance of the computer.
An explanation could be the DLL file could be updated via a recent Windows update and it was last modified date was inherited from the previous file that has been overwritten.
