I have a query I would like to run from a command button.  I would like to include the criteria for the date_run field.

In English it would look like this:

Run qryGlassing_Schedule where date_run = #2/16/2011#.

Thanks,
Brooks

So say your SQL for qryGlassing_Schedule is:

SELECT Table1.*
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.date_run)=[Enter Run Date:]));

Private Sub btnOpenQry_Click()

DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryGlassing_Schedule ",acViewNormal

End Sub

You will get a prompt to enter the date.  Is this what you mean?

If the Date is somewhere on the form, or is today's date then in the criteria field of the query - right mouse click  - build and point the where you want to get the date field from.

If you want to click the button and have the program prompt for the info then just use the [enter date] in the criteria field of the query

I imagine you would have a text box named txtDateRun on your form named frmGlassing_Schedule along side the command button cmdRunQry.
I imagine the query has a WHERE clause so you need to add this:

AND Run_Date = Forms!frmGlassing_Schedule!txtDateRun

You enter your date in the text box and in the Click event of cmdRunQry enter this code:

Private Sub cmdRunQry()
  DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryGlassing_Schedule"
End Sub
