Dates in where clause

Hi,
I'm struggling with a between dates where clause, I have this at the moment

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmBkingEditAll", , , "[CollDate] >= #" & txtStart & "# And [CollDate] <= #" & txtEnd & "#"

But i get all dates.

As always any help is much appreciated.

Is the Data Type of [CollDate] in your table set to Date and not Text?  If it already is then one other thing you can try is
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmBkingEditAll", , , "[CollDate] >= #" & CDate(txtStart) & "# And [CollDate] <= #" & CDate(txtEnd) & "#"

I did not see any issue with your code.

Just check the total number of records on the source table or query and compare it with the the total count of records that displayed in the form. If they are not the same then your the filtering worked well.

Or you might need to do the filtering within the query itself.

If your "frmBkingEditAll" is sourced from a query, in the criteria field under your CollDate column enter the one below:

Between [Forms]![Form1]![txtStart] And [Forms]![Form1]![txtEnd]

Then in your code just enter:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmBkingEditAll"


Note: Replace Form1 with the name of your form where your txtStart and txtEnd are.

Sincerely,

Hi,
I use the form "frmBkingEditAll" to edit shipments based on parameters which are set using another unbound form, so I don't really want to tie the query down to this one set of parameters.
Strangely enough, the where clause does work if I change the start and end dates on the filter form a couple of times. I have the event fire when the user clicks a button after entering the dates, but if the dates are the default then the form opens blank

I managed to get it working by removing the default dates and leaving the controls blank when the filter form opens.
Then the user must select both dates before hitting the OK button and the editing form opens within the correct dates.

Thanks to you both for your time
