request records from a specific month

EntryTime is a column with datetime as its format type.  

I want to request the number of records from the database where all the records are from July.

I know this code is wrong below
esql = "select count(*) from tblRegistration where EntryTime = 'July'

Open in new window

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Something like this?

SELECT * FROM DateSample
WHERE MONTH(DateVal) = 7

Can I do this instead

SELECT * FROM tblRegistration WHERE MONTH(EntryTime) = 'July'

I don't want to use numericals for the month

SELECT * FROM tblRegistration WHERE datename(month, EntryTime) = 'July'
