Good afternoom!
I have a query showing the results based on date parameters.
So far it works partually:
I want  ------>
if I select the start and end date it should give the data in the range i have specified
if i did not select the start and end date it should give everything
if i select start date only or  end date only it should give the result i want
SELECT CustomerName, Note, BadWO.RecDate
FROM Export INNER JOIN BadWO ON Export.WorkOrderNum = BadWO.WO
WHERE
 (BadWO.RecDate) Between [Enter the Start Date] And [Enter the End Date])
AND BadWO.Reason="Customer not available"
OR
[Enter the Start Date] Is Null  AND (([Enter the End Date]) Is Null));

Use isnull

Between ISNULL(startDate, '01/01/1901') AND ISNULL(endDate,'12/31/2099')

I'm obviously not able to test it but something like....
SELECT CustomerName, Note, BadWO.RecDate
FROM Export INNER JOIN BadWO ON Export.WorkOrderNum = BadWO.WO
WHERE
 (BadWO.RecDate) Between ISNULL(startDate, '01/01/1901') AND ISNULL(endDate,'12/31/2099'))
AND BadWO.Reason="Customer not available";

This way if either startDate or endDate is null then it uses the default values.  So if all you pass is the startDate it will use that value and because endDate is null it will use 12/31/2099 giving you everything between your entered start date and 12/31/2099.  You might need to make sure that your startDate and endDate are nulls not ' '

let me clarify
SELECT CustomerName, BadWO.WO, BadWO.RecDate
FROM Export INNER JOIN BadWO ON Export.WorkOrderNum = BadWO.WO
WHERE (((BadWO.RecDate) Between [Enter the Start Date] And [Enter the End Date]) AND ((BadWO.Reason)="Customer not available"));

working fine :
in case if you set the parameters the query returns what i want accordingly to parameters

I want to add ability to skip the parameters and return * regardless

I see you are doing this from Access, I have never actually tried this but it should work.... Try....

SELECT CustomerName, Note, BadWO.RecDate
FROM Export INNER JOIN BadWO ON Export.WorkOrderNum = BadWO.WO
WHERE
 (BadWO.RecDate) Between ISNULL([Enter the Start Date], '01/01/1901') AND ISNULL([enter the End Date],'12/31/2099'))
AND BadWO.Reason="Customer not available";
