Hi,

onclick event I have this code.  the problem is I am not getting any result within the date range result. I know that I have data with the date range I am putting in the form.

1. I don't know why I have this [DateField] when I open the report.  (why do I need that?)
2.  I am not able to generate any output.

Private Sub CmdDailyContainment_Click()

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

stDocName = "Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment"

If IsDate(Me.FromTxt) And IsDate(Me.ToTxt) Then
    If Me.ToTxt > Me.FromTxt Then
    Else
        MsgBox "End Date must be greater than start date.", vbOKOnly
        Me.ToTxt.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If
Else
   MsgBox "A valid date range is required to run this report.", vbOKOnly
    Me.FromTxt.SetFocus
    Exit Sub
End If

stLinkCriteria = "[DateField] BETWEEN " & Me.FromTxt & " AND " & Me.ToTxt
DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , stLinkCriteria

end

you have to change [DateField] with the actual name of the field for the date in your report.

also use this code

 stLinkCriteria = "[DateField] BETWEEN #" & Me.FromTxt & "# And #" & Me.ToTxt & "#"

Rey,

Can you please, tell me what you mean with the actual name of the field

on my form I have two input box one ToTxt and the second is FromTxt

I am new to access so I am not sure what I need to replace it with

 stLinkCriteria = "[DateField] BETWEEN #" & Me.FromTxt & "# And #" & Me.ToTxt & "#"

in the Record Source of your report  "Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment"

what is the name of the field that shows the Dates that you want to filter?

get the name of that field and use that in your code,
assuming the name of the field is "Date Purchased"

the code will be

 stLinkCriteria = "[Date Purchased] BETWEEN #" & Me.FromTxt & "# And #" & Me.ToTxt & "#"

You should do like this:
Private Sub CmdDailyContainment_Click()

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

stDocName = "Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment"

If IsDate(Me!FromTxt) And IsDate(Me!ToTxt) Then
    If DateValue(Me!ToTxt) < DateValue(Me!FromTxt) Then
        MsgBox "End Date must be greater than start date.", vbInformation + vbOKOnly
        Me!ToTxt.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If
Else
    MsgBox "A valid date range is required to run this report.", vbInformation + vbOKOnly
    Me!FromTxt.SetFocus
    Exit Sub
End If

stLinkCriteria = "[DateField] BETWEEN #" & Format(Me!FromTxt, "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "# AND #" & Format(Me!ToTxt, "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "#"

DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , stLinkCriteria

End 

Open in new window
