Access query criteria

I have a query that limits the records based on a time frame.  Here is the code:

WHERE (((tblGeneral.dtaDueDate)>Now()-180 And (tblGeneral.dtaDueDate)<Now()-7) AND ((tblGeneral.dtaEstValue)=0))

This also limits the records to the records where dtaEstValue = Zero.

When I add another criteria, the first criteria seems to be disregarded where the date limitations do not apply:


WHERE (((tblGeneral.dtaDueDate)>Now()-180 And (tblGeneral.dtaDueDate)<Now()-7) AND ((tblGeneral.dtaEstValue)=0)) OR (((tblGeneral.[dtaEstLabor$])=0));


Why when I add the "OR" clause to limit the records selected where one or both fieds are zero.  I want to add more "OR" statements for additional fields, but cannot get this one to work.  The goal is to show the records that fall between the date parameters and also have a zero in any of the other fields.

Your parenthesis where in the wrong place.
WHERE (dtaDueDate>Now()-180 And tblGeneral.dtaDueDate<Now()-7) AND (tblGeneral.dtaEstValue=0 OR [dtaEstLabor$]=0)
