Follow up to this question.

I want to change this query:
SELECT *
FROM [Project List] LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM Comments WHERE Comments.[Comment Date]>DateAdd("d",-14,date()))  AS q ON [Project List].ID=q.[Project ID]
WHERE ((([Project List].Resource)=[ResourceFilter]));

Open in new window


So that it does not return projects that are "completed" with a completion date > 14 days ago.

Relevant fields:
[Project List].[Closed Date]
[Project List].[Status]

Open in new window


The value for "Status" for completed projects is "99 Complete"

Correcting the above for syntax errors, I have:
SELECT *
FROM [Project List] LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM Comments WHERE Comments.[Comment Date]>DateAdd("d",-14,date()))  AS q ON [Project List].ID=q.[Project ID]
WHERE ([Project List].[Status] = "99 Complete" and ([Project List].[Closed Date] < DateAdd("d",-14,date())) and ([Project List].Resource)=[ResourceFilter]);

Open in new window


However, this returns only projects that are closed less than 14 days ago.  I need it to ignore items that are closed more than 2 weeks ago.

I've come up with the following, which ignores the Status field and instead relies only on the value of "Complete Date":
SELECT *
FROM [Project List] LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM Comments WHERE Comments.[Comment Date]>DateAdd("d",-14,date()))  AS q ON [Project List].ID=q.[Project ID]
WHERE (([Project List].[Closed Date]>DateAdd("d",-14,date()) Or ([Project List].[Closed Date] Is Null)) And ([Project List].Resource)=[ResourceFilter]);

Although my syntax was a bit off, I did provide you with the mysql function (date_sub) which inspired your fix.

Actually no.  

I had already decided that I did not need to look at "Status" and would instead simply filter on "Closed Date".

For the Projects Filter, I am using the DateAdd (the same as I am already using in the Comments filter section) and a test that allows NULL.

Besides... You had it backwards (showing only stuff that was closed in the past two weeks rather than showing everything except what was closed over 2 weeks ago.

Thank you for trying, but, honestly, I used absolutely nothing from your solution.
