Add date range to query

One of the experts helped me with an SQL query a couple of weeks ago.  Here is the result which works fine...

SELECT a.reason1, Count(a.reason1) AS CountOfreason1
FROM (select reason1 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview
union all
select reason2 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview
union all
select reason3 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview
union all
select reason4 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview
)  AS a
GROUP BY a.reason1
HAVING (((Count(a.reason1))>0));

But now I need to add a date range criteria somehow and don't know how to code it.  The form I'm using has two date type text boxes... txtStart and txtEnd.  The table is tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview and the field the date range criteria has to work against is "LastInvoice".

Thoughts?

test this, change "form1" with the actual name of your form


SELECT a.reason1, Count(a.reason1) AS CountOfreason1
FROM (select reason1 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between Forms!Form1!txtStart and Forms!Form1!txtEnd
union all
select reason2 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between Forms!Form1!txtStart and Forms!Form1!txtEnd
union all
select reason3 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between Forms!Form1!txtStart and Forms!Form1!txtEnd
union all
select reason4 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between Forms!Form1!txtStart and Forms!Form1!txtEnd
)  AS a
GROUP BY a.reason1
HAVING (((Count(a.reason1))>0));

or this

SELECT a.reason1, Count(a.reason1) AS CountOfreason1
FROM (select reason1 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtStart) and cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtEnd)
union all
select reason2 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtStart) and cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtEnd)
union all
select reason3 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtStart) and cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtEnd)
union all
select reason4 from tblJobsToAnalyzeFromSQLview where LastInvoice between cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtStart) and cvdate(Forms!Form1!txtEnd)
)  AS a
GROUP BY a.reason1
HAVING (((Count(a.reason1))>0));

A short note on dates, which I seem to be mixed up with a lot lately!
Access ALWAYS stores a Date and Time value.
Format just messes with what you see, not with what is actually stored.
What is stored is actually a double precision (CDbl) value.
The decimal represents the hours portion (.25 is 6AM, .5 is 12PM, .75 is 6PM)

Why is this important?

If you have been storing Now(), and getting it displayed as dd-MMM-yy or any other date only format the time part is still there it's just not displayed.
Now, a BETWEEN operator may not give you the results you expect
If you tell it ...Where myDate between #1-Sep-11# and #13-Sep-11#, what you are actually telling it is ...Where myDate between #1-Sep-11 12:00:00 AM# and #13-Sep-11 12:00:00 AM#
If you have been storing times inadvertently, or even deliberately, the fact that you get only those values equal to 13-Sep-11 12:00:00 AM and not for the rest of September 13th is a bit disconcerting.  If you had no values with a midnight time, you'd get no Sep 13th values

In plain English, when we ask for everything between the 1st and 13th, we expect to get everything from the 13th, not just those from the stroke of midnight.
Maybe you haven't used Now() or any other things that may have included a time portion.  In that case, Access sees the time portion as 12:00:00 AM across the board and your BETWEEN operator works intuitively.

But it's worth mentioning

well, just in case, that is no big deal for you can always use

 datevalue(dateField) to get rid of the time portion of the date field.

There are many ways to avoid stepping on a landmine...if you know it's there.
The fun-with-dates landmine tends to be one you don't realize is there...til you've already stepped on it.
Which is why I posted!

I made a mistake in my original question.  LastInvoice is actually Last Invoice (with a space).  So what would the code be for that?
