I have an Access 2010 database with a form containing two unbound text boxes. I'm referencing the two unbound text boxes to specify from and through date/time criteria for a query. I'm trying to find a way to have the default value of the "from" text box to be yesterday's date at 7AM (Example: "9/23/2014 07:00:00 AM") and the through text box to have a default value of today's date in the same format. If I use the functions "=date()-1" and "=date()" as default values I get the dates I need, but I can't seem to find a way to get the 7AM time to appear. I tried using "=date()-1 " 07:00:00 AM"" but that just generates #type! error.
