Hi,

 I only like to list PO_No when Entry_Date is Older than 7 years from the Entry Date.
 So based on sample records below, I like list any POs that is older than or equal to 3/26/2007.
 How do I crate a query to do that?

Thanks.

Something like this?

SELECT Table1.[PO_No], Table1.[Entry_Date]
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.[Entry_Date])<DateAdd("yyyy",-7,Date())));

You will need a proper function calculating age like the one below.
Then:

SELECT
    [PO_No],
    [Entry_Date]
FROM
    Table1
WHERE
    AgeSimple([Entry_Date]) >= 7;

Public Function AgeSimple( _
  ByVal datDateOfBirth As Date) _
  As Integer

' Returns the difference in full years from datDateOfBirth to current date.
'
' Calculates correctly for:
'   leap years
'   dates of 29. February
'   date/time values with embedded time values
'
' DateAdd() is used for check for month end of February as it correctly
' returns Feb. 28. when adding a count of years to dates of Feb. 29.
' when the resulting year is a common year.
' After an idea of Markus G. Fischer.

  Dim datToday  As Date
  Dim intAge    As Integer
  Dim intYears  As Integer
    
  datToday = Date
  ' Find difference in calendar years.
  intYears = DateDiff("yyyy", datDateOfBirth, datToday)
  If intYears > 0 Then
    ' Decrease by 1 if current date is earlier than birthday of current year
    ' using DateDiff to ignore a time portion of datDateOfBirth.
    intAge = intYears - Abs(DateDiff("d", datToday, DateAdd("yyyy", intYears, datDateOfBirth)) > 0)
  End If
  
  AgeSimple = intAge
  
End Function
