Hello,

I'm trying to if a user name exists in a table over the past 4 weeks...
I'm creating this database to update our contact information and in order to make more engaging we are developing a point system which can be used to trade for other things.
The first step of the code is to check the user name if the user name has a manager name then the code stops
Then the code checks if today is Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday if it is not then the code stops
Then it checks if the current date is checked against the tblWinners_ResOps table to make sure that there is no winner this week
Then it checks whether the user has won over past 4 weeks (this is not working), but if it is true then the code stops
Finally if all the above come back false then a random number is generated and compared against 17 (lucky number) if they both equal each other then the user wins.

Can you tell me if my DLookUP is wrong and what am I doing wrong...

Thank you,

it looks good..

strFName = DLookup("UserFirstName", "tblHSGUsers_ResOps", " [UserNetworkName] =  '" & fOSUserName() & "'")

'ADD this line to verify you got the correct name, remove later

msgbox strFName

Hello Capricorn1,

I noticed it and tried it out, it is capturing the correct username, but everytime i run the code i get a Run-time error '13' type mismatch and it highlightes the

dateExists4wks = DCount("Winner_Name", "tblWinners_ResOps", "Winner_Name = '" & strUserName & "'" And "[Winner_Date] BETWEEN #" & dtStart & "#  AND  #" & dt4Weeks & "#")

When I hover over it I get a value of 0... I know there is data in the table because I put it myself and I should be getting 2 instead.

Any suggestions???

change this

dateExists4wks = DCount("Winner_Name", "tblWinners_ResOps", "Winner_Name = '" & strUserName & "'" And "[Winner_Date] BETWEEN #" & dtStart & "#  AND  #" & dt4Weeks & "#")

to

dateExists4wks = DCount("Winner_Name", "tblWinners_ResOps", "Winner_Name = '" & strUserName & "' And [Winner_Date] BETWEEN #" & dtStart & "#  AND  #" & dt4Weeks & "#")

Hello capricorn1,

I don't get the error anymore, but i still get 0 for the Dcount... there are two records that are dated within the last 4 weeks.

Any suggestions

Thank you for your help

<there are two records that are dated within the last 4 weeks.>

does the "Winner_name" from table tblwinners the same as the name represented by the variable  strUserName ?

Yes the name matches what i have in the table...
I ran the DCount expression in a query and it gave me 2, but in VBA it is 0

what is  the format of  [Winner_Date] ? is this a DateTime datatype?

change this

dtStart = Format(Date, "mm/dd/yyyy")
to

dtStart = cdate(Format(Date, "mm/dd/yyyy"))

and this
dt4Weeks = Format(DateDiff("d", 28, Date), "mm/dd/yyyy")

to

dt4Weeks = cdate(Format(DateDiff("d", 28, Date), "mm/dd/yyyy"))
