Experts,

Is there a way to code first day of current month and first day of next month in an SQL query in Access.  I want to do this so the query does not have to change and can be run automatically each month.

Use the DateSerial Function.  Here are some examples:
FirstDayOfMonth: DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date()), 1)
LastDayOfMonth: DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date())+1, 0)
FirstDayOfNextMonth: DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date())+1, 1)
