Hello experts, I have a tricky problem with trying to find the closest date that I need some help with.

When a user enters a date in a text box, I would like to find the nearest date in a table, the closest future date if available otherwise the closest past date

e.g if the text box value is 29-Feb-2012 then I would like to return the value 02-Mar-2012 from the table [TBL_Dates].[Upload_Date] below.


[TBL_Dates].[Upload_Date]
17-Feb-2012
24-Feb-2012
02-Mar-2012
09-Mar-2012


Thanks for any help
