Hi kchoed, this should work - here i am substituting the year of the DOB with the current year, so you will get the result you want. You can execute this query from vb and get your result.

SELECT Name, DOB  from Applications where
Month(DOB) & '/' & Day(DOB) & '/' & Year(Date()) >= DateAdd("d",-7,Date())
and Month(DOB) & '/' & Day(DOB) & '/' & Year(Date()) <= DateAdd("d",7,Date())

SQL = "Select * from Staff Where BirthDay between " dateadd("d",-7,date) & " And " & dateadd("d",7,date) & " And Year(BirthDay) = Year(Date)" ?

If Current Year = 2002

Is '26/12' belong to 2001 ?

What is the Data Type of 'Birthday'? A Date?

Please give an example of 'Birthday' value in database.

regards

This will work if you have a table call staff and a dob date/time field,  I have tested this in access 2000

The date from parameter is mm

Basically it gets the day and month from the dob field adds it to the this year, the year before and the next year and calculates if the new date/s are within 7 days of mm,  the input date parateter

SELECT DISTINCT staff.*
FROM staff
WHERE (((Abs(DateDiff("d",DateAdd("d",Day([staff].[dob]),DateAdd("m",Month([staff].[dob])-1,DateAdd("yyyy",Year(Now())-1900,"31/12/1899"))),[mm])))<=7))
or
 (((Abs(DateDiff("d",DateAdd("d",Day([staff].[dob]),DateAdd("m",Month([staff].[dob])-1,DateAdd("yyyy",Year(Now())-1901,"31/12/1899"))),[mm])))<=7))
or
(((Abs(DateDiff("d",DateAdd("d",Day([staff].[dob]),DateAdd("m",Month([staff].[dob])-1,DateAdd("yyyy",Year(Now())-1899,"31/12/1899"))),[mm])))<=7));
