try something like this


that will return all records with dates equal to today and back


will return all records with date equal to 9/2/2012 and back

i prefer using this as criteria for date range

between  dateserial(year(date()),month(date()),day(date())) and dateserial(year(date())-1,month(date()),day(date()))

that will give records with date between today and a year ago

Hi Cap1

here is the query statement....

SELECT DCData.ID, DCData.Date, DCData.CustomerType, DCData.RollNumber, DCData.Brand, DCData.DemandCategory, DCData.DemandType, DCData.Resolution1, DCData.Resolution2, DCData.Userid, DCData.DateTime, DCData.Site, DCData.Date, DCData.Date, DCData.Date
WHERE (DCData.Date=?)

Open in new window

I am guess because i have a ? after the equals sign when i need to pull back data that is <= Date()....

is the reason why the paramemter window is popping up all the time when i try to pull back the data into excel...

try this and see what you will get, copy and paste and run

SELECT DCData.ID, DCData.[Date], DCData.CustomerType, DCData.RollNumber, DCData.Brand, DCData.DemandCategory, DCData.DemandType, DCData.Resolution1, DCData.Resolution2, DCData.Userid, DCData.DateTime, DCData.Site
WHERE (DCData.[Date] <= Date())
