Hello Experts.

I need the following query to also identify all records where the calculated field [fiveDayWarningIrDue] is between now() and (now()+5).  For example, if today is 2/17/2014, I need to the query to also return all of the records where [fiveDayWarningIrDue] is between 2/17/2014 and 2/22/2014.

Here's what I have so far:
SELECT fraudTbl.fraudID, infoRqstTbl.irDt, infoRqstTbl.irDueDt, infoRqstTbl.irDelDt, DateAdd("d",-5,[irDueDt]) AS fiveDayWarningIrDue
FROM fraudTbl INNER JOIN infoRqstTbl ON fraudTbl.fraudID = infoRqstTbl.fraudID
WHERE (infoRqstTbl.irDueDt<NOW() AND isnull(infoRqstTbl.irDelDt))
GROUP BY fraudTbl.fraudID, infoRqstTbl.irDt, infoRqstTbl.irDueDt, infoRqstTbl.irDelDt
ORDER BY infoRqstTbl.irDt;

Open in new window


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
J

Are you certain you want NOW() and Now() + 5 and not Date() and Date() + 5?

There is a big difference.  If you data is stored with the irDueDt as a simple data mm/dd/yy, then

WHERE [irDueDt] Between Now() and DateAdd("d", 5, Now())  

will not return records that were due today (2/17/14) but will actually select records which are due on the 22nd.  Where as:

WHERE [irDueDt] Between Date() And DateAdd("d", 5, Date()) will return records including 2/17/14 and 2/22/14.

Personally, I perfer:

WHERE [irDueDt] >= Date() AND [irDueDt] < DateAdd("d", 6, Date())

Which will capture all of the records where [irDueDate] is on 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, regardless of whether they have a time value embedded in the due date.

If we are always concerned with values relative to the current date.

If you are looking for 2 distinct windows of time, you can use the 1=0  option

SELECT * FROM STUFF 
WHERE (1=1) --Some absolute conditions
AND (1=0 
    OR (value between v1 and v2 )
    OR (value between v3 and v4)
)

Thanks fyed!  I added WHERE [irDueDt] >= Date() AND [irDueDt] < DateAdd("d", 6, Date()) to the existing WHERE clause and it worked as needed.
