I need help with a query on one of my tables. On one of the table fields there is a date mm/dd/yyyy. I need to have the user input a future date and then count back 6 years from the table field date. I only want to see the dates that fall in the 6 year window.

ex: user input - 01/01/2015

the query would pull only the dates starting 01/01/2009 to 01/01/2015

Sorry, I just realized that I posted the query wrong.

ex: user input - 01/01/2015

 the query would pull only the dates that are in the 6th year, which would be all of 2009
