I would like to create a list of people who have an expiration date in the next week.  I know that seems easy.  But if someone can help me with this one I can probably do the rest.

You can use this in the Criteria section of your query:

=DatePart("ww",Date())+1

This will show every date that is one week more than the day the query is run.

I must be doing something wrong,  Its not returning any names.  I have one person that meets that criteria and they are not showing up.  Here is what I did:

The three fields it is supposed to return are policy name,   WCF POL#, and Exp Date.  I put this =DatePart("ww",Date())+1  into the criteria under exp. date.

Sorry, my error. That's what happens when you rush. It should be:

=DatePart("ww",[YourDateField]) = DatePart("ww",Date())+1

Just change [YourDateField] to the name of your date field in the query.

Thanks for the points, but I just thought of one slight problem with the submitted solution. It will work for the first 51 weeks of the year, but not the last. Here's a better one that will work no matter what time of the year it is:

DateDiff("ww",Now(),[Day])=1

So when it gets to the end of December, it will still know that January is just 1 week away!
