I want to query data based on a form.  The form has a single date field named txtEndDate.

But in the query criteria I have:

Between [Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]-365 And [Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]

which I'm sure isn't the right way to do it especially if it was a leap year.  I want to end up querying from a year ago through the date entered on the form.

How should my criteria read?

I would suggest

Between DateAdd("yyyy",-1,[Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]) And [Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]

Just bear in mind - today is Oct 28. If someone types in Oct 28, 2014, and you have something with a date and time of Oct 28, 2014 12:00, then it won't be caught by "Oct 28, 2014", because Access will assume that it is midnight of that day.

Therefore, you may want

>=DateAdd("yyyy",-1,[Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]) And <[Forms]![frmDate]![txtEndDate]+1

or

>=DateAdd("yyyy",-1,[Start]) And <DateAdd("d",1,[Start])

if that is a possibility.
