Hi,
I have this parameter query Like "*" & [Date] & "*"

I would like to be able to add a date range. Unfortunately I can't use the standard Between - And parameter because my data is from a linked table that has the date and time in the field.

Thanks,
Ward

If you need to do a Date range comparison (user inputs the range), without the time portion, then switch to SQL View and use this for the WHERE clause of your query:

WHERE DatePart([YourDateTimeFIeld]) BETWEEN [Start Date] AND [End Date]

personally, i would recommend using

"where [datefield] >= #" & [from date] & "# and [date field] < #" & dateadd("d", 1, [thru date]) & "#"

The function should be DateValue() not DatePart()

Do you have nulls in your data?

Try

DateValue(nz(yourdatefield, #1/1/1900#))

Nope, I don't have any nulls. Where do I put DateValue(nz(yourdatefield, #1/1/1900#)) ?
