How would I check for all records where Data_A is between April 1, 2011 and December 2, 2011 and no records before April 1, 2011 exists.

Does that query ensure that there is no record that is less than 4/2/2011 at all?  If a member has two records one 3/1/2011 and another one 5/1/2011.  I do not want to pull this member.

Then you need a query like:

select * from
YourTable
where data_A > #4/1/2011# and data_A < #12/2/2011#

ohh, try this, you need to change  "recordID" with the actual field for the record ID

select * from
tableX
where data_A >=#4/1/2011# and data_A <=#12/2/2011#
and exists(select T.recordID from tableX where T.date_A< #4/1/2011)=false

If you want to exclude any member with more than one date you can do
a count on the members ID and exclude records with more than one for the count
as follows:


select MemberID, MemberName, count(*) as Ct from
Yourtable
where data_A > #4/1/2011# and data_A < #12/2/2011# and Ct=1
Group by MemberID, MemberName

Another way to do that is:

select * from
YourTable Y
where Y.data_A > #4/1/2011# and Y.data_A < #12/2/2011#
and Y.MemberID Not in(select X.MemberID from YourTable X where X.date_A< #4/2/2011)

Capricorn1,

I have not used access in a while.  I am on Access 2007.  Where do I go to enter the SQL version of the query?
