My where clause that is suppose to bring up the records from the current day is not working. The where clause is:

WHERE (((DateValue(Nz([qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded],#1/1/1950#)))=DateValue(Now())) AND ((qryBookingDayswithYear.FirstDay)=[qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded]))

Open in new window


I am using a very similar where clause in another query that pulls up the records from the current week. This work perfectly. It is:

WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Now(),"wwyy")) AND ((qryBookingDayswithYear.FirstDay)=[qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded]))

Open in new window


Is there a way I can change my first where clause for current day that would work properly. When a originally designed this query it was working properly... that was a month ago. Not sure why it is not working. Thanks!

The trick is what you said 'very similar'. Look at this section:

[DayRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Now(),"wwyy"))

[DayRecorded],#1/1/1950#)))=DateValue(Now())

Make sure your date formats match or they will never return what you need.

Another thought. You can look at the data when the query was working. Maybe something changed in the way the data was entered.

WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"yyyymmdd"))=Format(Now(),"yyyymmdd")) AND ((qryBookingDayswithYear.FirstDay)=[qryBookingDayswithYearIIIB].[DayRecorded]))
