Access 97 - General Date Format

Good Afternoon,

I have an Audit table that stores the date and time that a record was changed using the General Date Format (in the table). I am creating a report that will show all the records changed between dates (the user chooses on a form with unbound fields for entering the date). In my query I am using the following criteria:

Between [Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtStartDate] And [Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtEndDate]

Problem is that if a record was changed on 8/23/2004 9:17:05 AM and on my search form I put 08/01/04 to 08/23/04 I don't get the record referenced above.

Is there an easy solution to this (other than changing the format of the date in the table)?

Let me know if you need more information.

Simply add 1 day to the user's input using DateAdd function:

Between [Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtStartDate] And DateAdd("d",1,[Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtEndDate])

To be very precise we should add 23h 59m only, but noone is working at 00:00 :)

You could do it like this if you like

Between [Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtStartDate] And Cdate(Clng([Forms]![frmChangeReports]![txtEndDate]) + .999988425925926)


The value .999988425925926 is really 23:59:59
