Access 2010:

SELECT Count(dbo_Desc_Search_Log.ProcRun) AS CountOfProcRun, dbo_Desc_Search_Log.QueryDate
FROM dbo_Desc_Search_Log
GROUP BY dbo_Search_Log.ProcRun, dbo_Desc_Search_Log.QueryDate
HAVING (((dbo_Desc_Search_Log.ProcRun)="1"));

I need to run this same query but only include records from todays date from the field.

 dbo_Desc_Search_Log.QueryDate

The format for this field is like this:
7/21/2014 8:35:35 AM

Just need with todays date(everyday)  


Thanks

If QueryDate is a Date field, then adding a Where clause should do it:
WHERE QueryDate = Date()

If not, then you would need to convert it to a Date value using CDate().

1      7/21/2014 8:57:15 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:59 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:34 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:25 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:24 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:21 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:21 AM
1      7/21/2014 8:56:18 AM

Just trying to get everything starting with todays date... without say explicitly 7/21/2014...the time does not matter.

It looks as if you are getting the results you want -- all those records have today's date.  Is there still a problem?  If so, what is the problem?

Make a calculated field like this:  Format(QueryDate, "m/d/yyyy"), and do a count on that.  This will eliminate the times that are causing separate records.  You may have to tweak the query to make sure that other fields don't cause extra records.  It would help if you could post the database, or a cut-down version of it.

Try:

SELECT Count(dbo_Desc_Search_Log.ProcRun) AS CountOfProcRun, 
              FORMAT(dbo_Desc_Search_Log.QueryDate,"mm/dd/yyyy")
 FROM dbo_Desc_Search_Log
 GROUP BY dbo_Search_Log.ProcRun, FORMAT(dbo_Desc_Search_Log.QueryDate,"mm/dd/yyyy")
 HAVING (((dbo_Desc_Search_Log.ProcRun)="1"));
