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 - 06/01/2015

 the query would pull only the dates starting 06/01/2009 to 05/31/2010

Use something like
WHERE DATE BETWEEN DATEADD("yyyy",-6, Date Passed) and DatePassed

is my thinking correct on this?

If I am going back 6 yrs from a date ( 06/15/2015 ) would that be in between 6/01/2009 to 5/31/2010?

or is it between 5/31/2008 to 6/01/2009?

Not sure  - open the immediate window of VBA and type in the expression as ?Datevalue(with your details) and see what it returns.
