I have a query that I am trying to execute in Access that pulls all users who have completed courses BETWEEN #01-01-2009# AND #12/31/2010# The table was laid out rather odd and I cannot seem to get the date range to work because I am getting results for all years.

This is my criteria. create a query in the PA database that will pull only the users that completed courses between 1/1/07 and 12/31/08 (and which courses).

Are you saying that with the way the table is laid out that I cannot do this? Using AND does not work either.

yes, because your table TblModuleProgress is not normalized.

you have to break this table into two tables ? perhaps
see this link to understand normalized table

This should give you the idea:

SELECT TblParticipants.LastName
, TblParticipants.FirstName, v.Number, v.Mailed, v.Completed, v.CertCent
FROM (SELECT TblModuleProgress.Number, TblModuleProgress.LicenseNumber, TblModuleProgress.[1Mailed] as Mailed, TblModuleProgress.[1Completed] as Completed , TblModuleProgress.[1CertSent] as CertCent FROM TblModuleProgress where  TblModuleProgress.[1Completed] between  #01-01-2009# AND #12/31/2010#

union
SELECT TblModuleProgress.Number, TblModuleProgress.LicenseNumber, TblModuleProgress.[2Mailed], TblModuleProgress.[2Completed], TblModuleProgress.[2CertSent] FROM TblModuleProgress where  TblModuleProgress.[2Completed] between  #01-01-2009# AND #12/31/2010#
union
SELECT TblModuleProgress.Number, TblModuleProgress.LicenseNumber, TblModuleProgress.[3Mailed], TblModuleProgress.[3Completed], TblModuleProgress.[3CertSent] FROM TblModuleProgress where  TblModuleProgress.[3Completed] between  #01-01-2009# AND #12/31/2010#

the union query will work, but you have to always modify to include additional fields as the table is growing horizontally and vertically.
this table design is a big NO in database app.
