What is a good way to compare the month portion of a date when using an SQL query?

I have a database with a field containing dates in the format yyyy/mm/dd. I get the beginning and ending months from the user with 2 combo boxes. So let's say the user wants only the samples between SEP and OCT.  What is the correct SQL syntax to get this?  I'm looking for the '....' part of the Select statement below. I am using Access and VB.Net 1.1

Thank you in advance.


cboFMonth.Text = "SEP"
cboLMonth.Text = "NOV"
Dim strSQL as String =  "SELECT DateReceived WHERE DateReceived...."

Hi there,
the above is correct and works, but you can also use the MONTH function as follows:

SELECT DateReceived WHERE MONTH(DateReceveived) = 1

which is a little more succinct.

I don't believe there's any difference in performance between the two so I guess it's just personal preference.

Best Regards,

Thank you Snow Moon for the solution. I just had to change datepart(month,DateReceived)  to datepart("m",DateReceived)  and it performed exactly as I wanted. I did not see DoobDave's solution until after I accepted Snow Moons but can also see that would work too. Thank you both for your assistance.
