Microsoft Excel 2007 Query based on date parameter

printmedia asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi all.

I have an excel 2007 worksheet whose datasource is a sql table. The fields in that table are: ItemNumber, QtySold, Month, Year

I want to be able to have the user enter the following parameters: Month1, Year1, Month2, Year2

So if the user enters: 10, 2010, 12, 2010 the results would display data from Oct 2010 through December 2010.

If the user enters: 11, 2010, 02, 2011 the resuls would display data from Nov 2010 through February 2011

How can I do this using the query option in excel?

I tried doing this using the code below, it worked fine with my first example but when I got to the second example it didn't work.
WHERE (myTable.Month1>=? And myTable.Month2<=?) AND (myTable.Year1>=? And myTable.Year2<=?)
