Given an MD Access DB with records containing a date, how can retrieve the records for a specific date?  I know how to use the dateadd function to pull the records using the (-) days approach.  

I want to pull records for the past 24 days, one day at a time.  How can I do that?

for rw as integer =24 to 0 step -1
 sql="select * from history where type='cycle' and cycle_date = '" & ???????
next

Any ideas?

Nevermind, I found my answer by doing this:

sql = "select * from cycle_history where cycle_type='cycle' and job_number='" & jobno & "' and cycle_time >= dateadd(""d"",0,#" & Now.Date.AddDays(-dy) & "#) and cycle_time < dateadd(""d"",0,#" & Now.Date.AddDays(-dy + 1) & "#) order by cycle_time desc"
