Should be easy, but I'm just too tired of messing with this.  I have a simple query that I need to pull records based off of yesterday at 7am to today at 7am. Hard coding the between clause works fine.

Between #3/16/2011 7:00:00 AM# And #3/17/2011 7:00:00 AM#

However I need to do something like this.

Between date()-1& #7:00:00 AM# And date() & #7:00:00 AM#

This is returning an error.

This should work,
BETWEEN Date() + #07:00:00# AND (Date() + 1 + #07:00:00#)

although this would include values for 07:00 tomorrow.  I prefer to use:

>= Date() AND < (Date() + 1 + #07:00:00#)

But how to I concatenate the time in there. date()-1 works fine to get me to yesterdays date it is the concatenating 7am into it that is the issue.

use the "+" sign instead of "&"


Between date()-1 + #7:00:00 AM# And date() + #7:00:00 AM#

Sorry, that should have been:

>= Date() -1 + #07:00:00#  AND < Date() + #07:00:00#
