You can use the Date Function to get todays date   and I believe if you wanted to get the date 7 days ago you could do something like

oldDate = DateAdd("d",-7,Date)    'this should return it.

You would then pass your two dates in your SQL Statement with   a where clause of WHERE 'Date field' Between '#oldDate#' AND '#Date#'

Hope that helps give some idea.  Good Luck

MyDateA = Date()      'This is Today
MydateB = Date() - 1  'This is yesterday
MydateC = Date() - 2  'This is the day befor yesterday
