filtering a subform from a main form

I have an access 2002 database with a filter/search form and subform, but when I try to filter it by date it just clears all of the entries without showing the filtered info. the other filters all work it is just the date one that does not work.

this is the line of code for the date filter.
Filter_Date = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search <> "", "Validated_Date = " & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search & " and ", "")

this is the code for one of the other filters that works OK
Filter_Model = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Model_Search <> "", "Model = '" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Model_Search & "' and ", "")
Private Sub Run_Search()
Dim Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter, Filter_Date, Filter_Review, Filter_Status, Filter_Equipment, Filter_Model, Filter_Condition
Equipment_Query_Subform.Form.Filter = ""

'DEFINE FILTERS
Filter_Date = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search <> "", "Validated_Date = " & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search & " and ", "")
Filter_Review = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Review_Search <> "", "Validation_Review_Date = " & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Review_Search & " and ", "")
Filter_Status = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Status_Search <> "", "Validation_Status = '" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Status_Search & "' and ", "")
Filter_Equipment = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Equipment_Search <> "", "Equipment_Description = '" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Equipment_Search & "' and ", "")
Filter_Model = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Model_Search <> "", "Model = '" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Model_Search & "' and ", "")
Filter_Condition = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Condition_Search <> "", "Equipment_Condition = '" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Condition_Search & "' and ", "")

Equipment_Query_Subform.Form.FilterOn = False
Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter = Filter_Date + Filter_Review + Filter_Status + Filter_Equipment + Filter_Model + Filter_Condition

If Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter <> "" Then Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter = Mid(Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter, 1, Len(Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter) - 5) ' remove ' and'

Equipment_Query_Subform.Form.Filter = Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter
If Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter <> "" Then
        Me.Day_report_search_filter = Equipment_Query_Subform_Form_Filter
        Equipment_Query_Subform.Form.FilterOn = True
    Else: Equipment_Query_Subform.Form.FilterOn = False
    Me.Day_report_search_filter = "#"
End If

End Sub

Try:
Filter_Date = IIf(Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search <> "", "Validated_Date = #" & Forms.Equipment_Query_Form.Date_Search & "# and ", "")

Hi hnasr, Thanks for the very prompt and helpful answer I have been looking at that line for so long and I kept missing the # signs.
