OK thank you.  

For either way, can I add another criteria at the end?:
can I add
        strSQL = "UPDATE TASKS Set DueDate = DateAdd('d', 1, DueDate) WHERE DueDate=#" & DateAdd("d", -1, Date) & "#" & [Tasks].[status] <> "Completed"

        strSQL = "UPDATE TASKS Set DueDate = DateAdd('d', 1, DueDate) WHERE DueDate=#" & DateAdd("d", -1, Date) & "# AND status <> 'Completed'"

Open in new window


Or using the simpler syntax that Pete suggested:


        strSQL = "UPDATE TASKS Set DueDate = DateAdd('d', 1, DueDate) WHERE  status <> 'Completed' AND DueDate= Date() -1"

Open in new window
