Criteria to Exclude Date

Some time ago I wrote records away to a table using the now() command - so date and time was recorded

Now I wish to exclude records by entering the date only (without the time) in a query

What is the easiest way of doing that?

Thanks

use date() instead of now()

I particularly wish to write away the time.  The problem is that I don't want to enter it when I wish to exclude these records.  Can I convert the date in the table before doing the compare?

Use DataValue([YourDateField]) to filter against the date only

Yes .. using an update query ... updating to the DataValue([YourDateField])

For example:

UPDATE Table1 SET Table1.FIELD1 = DateValue([FIELD1]);
