popup dialogue box for a query

It's an Access 2K database with ODBC links to an MS SQL 2K table.  I've got a Make Table query to thin out the records.  The field is bill_month and it's text.

If I specify the Criteria in the query (either as "04-00" or "Between 04-00 and 12-00"), it works fine.

If I set up the Criteria as a popup dialogue box (as in [Enter Bill Month]), it will work for a specific instance ("04-00") but the between command finds zero records.

What's going on here?  Thanks for the help,

Ken

Hi Ken,

Are you specifying your between expression like this:

Between [Enter the Start Date] And [Enter the End Date]

If not, you just need to change your expression to include a parameter for both sides of the Between.

Yep, that was it.  Apparently I was trying to enter the word "between" as a value.  Thanks so much.

If you are entering the expression correctly, as noted in my last comment, and you are experiencing problems then it may have to do with your data type.  Since the values are text there could be a problem with evaluating it correctly using parameters.  In that case, you'll have to get your expression to do some conversions.  For example:

Format([Bill_month],"mm/yy") Between Format([Enter Start Date],"mm/yy") And Format([Enter End Date],"mm/yy")

You can even take it a step further than this by using the CVDate() function to convert the text values to Date/Time format:

Format(CVDate([Bill_month]),"mm/yy") Between Format(CVDate([Enter Start Date]),"mm/yy") And Format(CVDate([Enter End Date]),"mm/yy")
