MS Access Form Filters Working with Dates and Date Ranges

I made quite a few additions to the attached database so I understand the If statments in the VB code now, but dealing with the dates is a little bit tricky and I am not sure if I know how to handle it in the VBA.

Please take a look at what I am trying to do here.

Scenario1: manager A would like to see all Providers with a [from_date] greater than or equal to 1/1/2003 and a [term date] less than or equal to 8/12/2008, for example.

As I have it right now, I added filter buttons that don't account for the different categories of dates and if I click one filter button, it will work, then I will click the other filter button and it will also work. The problem is that if I put in dates for different fields, the filter buttons won't account for the other fields. You will see when you open my attached database.

Can we get it so that each of the filter buttons filters the entire date range criteria (from_date, term_date, fromfrom_date, tofrom_date, fromterm_date, toterm_date)??

Oh, check out my revised Form (super sweet!!!)

Let me know what you think.

I don't have vendorid or vendorname sample data, but you can get the idea (it works with production data).

Can filter on any of the top section fields now using the If statements in VBA (super!!!)

so you didn't change anything except for the form itself? I am looking at it, it works, super!!

What did you change (I am checking what you changed right now)....?

Thx so much (I did get a lot of feedback about "what does this and this date mean" so that design works best because it is clearer).
