Select values from one table to use as parameters in another SQL in Access 2000

I have a simple table named duedates that contains 1 record.  This record contains an OpenDate and CloseDate.

I want to grab these two values from this table and use them in a different SQL select to pull data from two tables that have been submitted between these two dates.

The code I have provided shows these dates as being 'hard coded' in the SQL select statement.

Is there a way from within Access 2000's SQL query view to create a SQL statement that will grab these two dates and use their values instead of having to hard code it or having to enter it manually each time the query is run.

Thanks in advance for your help!

FROM Applications INNER JOIN Budget ON Applications.ApplicationID=Budget.ApplicationID
WHERE Applications.DateSubmitted Between #7/31/2007# And #10/26/2007# And Applications.Resa=[Enter Resa Number]
ORDER BY Applications.Resa, Applications.ApplicationID;

use CROSS JOIN:
SELECT Applications.Resa, Applications.ApplicationID AS ApplicationID, Applications.Equipment, Applications.ServiceLearning, Applications.MathScience, Applications.BudgetRequest, Applications.ProjectTitle, Applications.SubjectArea, Applications.GradeLevel, Applications.Summary, Applications.Objectives, Applications.ParentsInvolved, Applications.TeachersInvolved, Applications.StudentsInvolved, Applications.Caucasian, Applications.AfricanAmerican, Applications.Asian, Applications.LatinoHispanic, Applications.NativeAmerican, Applications.Other, Applications.EvaluateProject, Applications.Schedule, Budget.ApplicationID AS BudgetApplicationID, Budget.LineItem, Budget.Supplier, Budget.Quantity, Budget.UnitCost, Budget.TotalCost
FROM Applications INNER JOIN Budget ON Applications.ApplicationID=Budget.ApplicationID
CROSS JOIN DueDates
WHERE Applications.DateSubmitted Between DueDates.OpenDate And DueDates.CloseDate And Applications.Resa=[Enter Resa Number]
ORDER BY Applications.Resa, Applications.ApplicationID;

I tried the cross join but it gives me an error message.  I've been searching information on cross joins and I'm not sure if it works in Access 2000.

well, then any CROSS JOIN can be replaced by INNER JOIN ON 1=1
or INNER JOIN ON T1.SOMEFIELD=T1.SOMEFIELD
