What is the sintax that I can use to compare a Date Column from access to the System Date ? Like this :

adodc1.recordset.open "select * from table where field1 < date"

When I use two date columns no problems.

Thanks in advance for any help

Dim CurrentDate
CurrentDate = Format(Now,"mm/dd/yyyy")

adodc1.recordset.open "select * from table where field1 < #" & CurrentDate & "#"

Date() will return the current system date:

adodc1.recordset.open "select * from table where field1 < #" & Date() & "#"

Be aware that datetime fields will assume you mean just after midnight on the day you compare.  So if you want to include items on that day, you need to say something like #12/31/99 23:59# or just say <#1/1/00#
