STATUS:IIF([The_Date]<= GetDate() AND IsNull([STATUS]),"Write",[STATUS])

I have a vba module with function,


or if I could get it to work just by using SQL

Function GetDate()
   dim a 
    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)
    a = int(now())-a
    a = GetDate
End Function

your function's last line is wrong:
Function GetDate()
   dim a 
    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)
    a = int(now())-a
    GetDate = a
End Function

you might set the data type to date:
Function GetDate() as Date
   dim a 
    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)
    a = int(now())-a
    GetDate = a
End Function
