I want to generate a number.  I know what I wanna do, but just can't find the correct way to jot it down.  Please assist if you can.  

I want to generate a number by counting the records in my database for the current year.  Yes, that's right.  I want to count the number of records in a field called Tdate (01/06/01 - shortdate format) current year only - from a table called Travel only. I am using ADO.

Can you help me?
Your assistance is really appreciated.  

Thanks :)

The SQL statement that you want is:

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM TableName WHERE TDate >= '01/01/2001' and TDate <= '12/31/2001'

To do this within ADO:
1) Create a new Connection object
2) Open the connection using the proper connect string (ODBC/DSN or DSN-less)
3) Execute the ExecuteSQL() method of the connection object to get the value returned from this SQL.
4) Use the Recordset.GetFieldValue() method to get the returned value.

Try this. I am assuming you are using Access, db name is your_db.mdb, table name is your_table.

    Dim objConn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim objRs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim intCount As Integer
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim intYear As Integer
   
    Set objConn = New ADODB.Connection
    objConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" & _
                   "Dbq=" & App.Path & "\your_db.mdb;" & _
                   "Uid=Admin;" & _
                   "Pwd=;"
   
    intYear = Year(Now())
    strSQL = "select count(tDate) as cnt from your_table where tDate >= #" & DateSerial(intYear, 1, 1) & "# and tdate <= #" & DateSerial(intYear, 12, 31) & "#"
    Set objRs = objConn.Execute(strSQL)
    MsgBox "Count = " & objRs("cnt")
   
    objConn.Close
    Set objRs = Nothing
    Set objConn = Nothing

If you are using other db, then simply change the connection string. See this for more information on connection strings.

Note you need to include "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects" library.

Could also use between
strSQL = "select count(tDate) as cnt from your_table where tDate between #" & DateSerial(intYear, 1, 1) & "# and #" & DateSerial(intYear, 12, 31) & "#"
