I have an Access query that I am using to append to another table.

I want to pull from a date field that would be the last date besides today ie. if there were 10 records accessed yesterday I want those to append to the new table not anything accessed today.

If the last time some recrods were accessed was 2 days ago i want those to append to the new table but not anythign from today.

Is this possible without typing in the date?

You should look into the datediff function. Your query could check if your number of days between your field date and the current date is 1 or 2 and select those into another table.

This is what I am currently using

SELECT Table1.Date_change
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.Date_Change)=[Select Date]));

I am actually selecting the date

This code should work, returning the maximum date from the table where the date is less than the current date.

-Lee
SELECT DISTINCT Table1.Date_Change
FROM Table1
WHERE Table1.Date_Change = (SELECT MAX(A.Date_Change) from Table1 A WHERE A.Date_Change < Date())
