How do I use a formula that countdowns to a certain date (in Microsoft Access 2003) and then run a query that finds all less than 30 dates?
Posted on 2009-07-13
In my Access database (named Audit Issues) I have a field named Days to Target Date. I need to run some kind of math formula that will calculate and countdown how many days from the current date to the target date. For example, if the target date is January 1, 2010 something that will countdown until that date so if I am entering data today (July 13, 2009) the calculation will have 172 days appear.
Further, I need to learn how to run a query so that I can sort my table and eventually run a report that finds all data entries in this field (Days to Target Date) that are less than 30 days until target date and less than 60 days until target date. First, how do I go about running a query and second how do I run/use one under these two conditions?
I am a beginner to Microsoft Access (using version 2003), so detailed and step by step procedures/directions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for all of your help, Experts Exchange has been great so far.
