Mental block over query criteria:

I have a sales date field [date of sale] and I want separate criteria for two separate queries.

The first query is " which clients have placed a sale in the last 30 days" by reference to clients records

The other is message box "those clients which sales since have taken place since [insert date]"

Each client has its own record. the two queries are stand alone.

Just need the criteria for the date field query.

The first query needs to be a groupby/totals query.  Just needs Customer name  and Date of sale fields.
Group By customer name and get Max of date of sale.
Set the criteria on the Date of sale column to
>Date()-31

Secod query is the same as the first except the criteria is :
>[Enter date]
You should declare [Enter Date] in the query parameters as a datetime datatype to prevent invalid dates being entered.

Thanks.

Not sure where this is declared/entered:

You should declare [Enter Date] in the query parameters as a datetime datatype to prevent invalid dates being entered.
