"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

oops, got the arguments wrong:


  Date/Time fields are also simply a double float with the whole number portion represneting the date, so you could also do:

  =Now() - 1

  But I would use DateAdd() for a number of reasons; it's clearer what's going on, works with every type of period (days, weeks, years, etc) and takes care of the time as well.
