I have a form with has two date fields... txtStart and txtEnd.  Then I have a query which has this for the criteria...

Between [Forms]![frmSelectDatesForInvestPerfRpt]![txtStart] And [Forms]![frmSelectDatesForInvestPerfRpt]![txtEnd]

But if the user leaves the date fields blank on the form I want the query to return all records.

I tried...

Between "*" & [Forms]![frmSelectDatesForInvestPerfRpt]![txtStart] And [Forms]![frmSelectDatesForInvestPerfRpt]![txtEnd] & "*"

But it doesn't work.
