I have a form where user can input restriction.

Like "show me date from XXXXXX(input) to XXXXXX(input) "
Then I use what's in the form to query the database (table transaction) with the where argument

In the creation view of the query, I would like to use the WHERE argument and put something like

Field : .Transaction.TransactionDate
Table : Transaction
Order : ASC
Show : No
Where : TrueFalse(Form![formname]![fromdate] Is Null;Display All;>=Form![formname]![fromdate]) AND  TrueFalse(Form![formname]![todate] Is Null;Display All;<=Form![formname]![todate])

the default value of the field on the form is Null or "" or blank, I want the query to restrict to the input only if a value has been entered.
I have a number of input restriction but I just need to know the general idea of what it's suppose to look like.

Can someone help me with that?

Field: iif((Forms!FormName!FromDate + Forms!FormName!ToDate) is Null,"",
[TransactionDate] Between Forms!FormName!FromDate and Forms!FormName!ToDate)
Table: Transaction
 Order: ASC
Show: No
Criteria: <> False

I know it looks strange but it worked with my test case. I do not know if the todate and fromdate identifiers have to be wrapped in date delimteres (#). Try it this way first and if it doesn't work we can try the delimiters.
