Hi,

I trying to get the count of all records that are less or equal to 12/31/2010.
I am getting 0 results where I should have over 2500 count.  But, when I change to > it will return all records count.

Your advice will be appreciated!

Thanks,
Rad


SELECT Count("Starting_Date") AS 2010_Count
FROM My_Table
where "Starting_Date" = #12/31/2010#

Shouldn't this be:

SELECT Count([Starting_Date]) AS 2010_Count
FROM My_Table
where [Starting_Date <= #12/31/2010#

Rad:
Your issue is/was your have your field name as a literal String.  It needs to be enclosed in brackets as I posted.
