And Operator in TruePart section of an IIf statement

Dear Experts,

I'm currently trying to figure out how to produce a query in MS Access that says "if today is Monday then look for data within a 24hr period, 4 days in the future"

The query that I've been working on appears to work when sperated down but not as a whole.  After much searching I found this might be because it is not possible to use the 'AND' operator in the TruePart of an IIf statement.

Does anybody know of a way round this?  I'm no expert in MS Access so the simpler the better!

Current Query:

iif(WeekDay(date())=2,>Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "0000" And <Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "2400","")

Thanks in anticipation,

Neil

you need 2 conditions, not 1, for example
> iif(WeekDay(date())=2, Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "0000" )
< iif(WeekDay(date())=2, Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "2400" )

Thank you angelIII, sometimes it's just that simple!

I changed

iif(WeekDay(date())=2,>Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "0000" And <Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "2400","")

to become

>IIf(Weekday(Date())=2,Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "0000") And <IIf(Weekday(Date())=2,Format(Date()+4,"yyyymmdd") & "2400")

and now it works!
