Sorry did not work.

Here is the SQL statement from the original SQL Stored Procedure:

       BETWEEN TP.AdmSerDateTime and TP.DischargeDateTime

The field RXA.MedRecSecondsID is NUMERIC in its source table.

example of data:    1056296349

I assume the data field holds the # of seconds since 1/1/1900.

The converted MedRecSecondsID falls between the two dates.

Would the statement be?

DATEADD("s",Clng(RXA.MedRecSecondsID), '1980-03-01')
       BETWEEN TP.AdmSerDateTime and TP.DischargeDateTime
Rey Obrero (Capricorn1)Commented:
in access,

DATEADD("s",Clng(RXA.MedRecSecondsID), #1980-03-01#)

if you type this in the immediate Window of the VBA project

?DATEADD("s",Clng(1056296349), #1980-03-01#)
