Need to show full results from a query

I have a data type field (date/time) "SubDate" that contains information in the following format  mm/dd/yyyy time or for example:  5/7/2008 1:42:33 PM.  My search page pulls out the years (yyyy) from the SubDate field.  

Now I want to pull up all data that contains the specific year selected in the search page.  For example, if I selected 2010, then the results page will display all of SubDate's data that contain the year 2010 in it.

As of right now, here is my Select statement:
SELECT * FROM district WHERE SubDate = #"&Request.QueryString("SubDateYear")&"# ORDER BY SubDate DESC

And I receive the following error message:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in date in query expression 'SubDate = ##'.

Obviously, it is looking only for the year when the field contains 5/7/2008 1:42:33 PM in it.

Any suggestions or recommendations is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Try this:
"SELECT * FROM district WHERE DATEPART(year, 'SubDate') = #" & Request.QueryString("SubDateYear") & "# ORDER BY SubDate DESC"

Sorry, I assumed you were using SQL Server. It is only now I am noticing it's Access.
"SELECT * FROM district WHERE year(SubDate) = " & Request.QueryString("SubDateYear") & " ORDER BY SubDate DESC"

My apologizes, but I receive this error message when I applied the last recommendation.

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'year(SubDate) ='.

The search page contain the POST method so I changed Request.QueryString to Request.Form.  Regardless, I continue to get errors.  And yes, the information resides in Access.

I ended up using

"SELECT * FROM district WHERE Year(SubDate) = '"&Request.Form("SubYearDate")&"'  ORDER BY SubDate DESC"

Which did the trick and gave me the results I looked for. Thank you.

hi,

while it can be done with Access as back-end for small sites when the data access is carefully designed, I would really recommend that you use at least SQL Server 2008 R2 Express as database back-end.
