Update Access table with Account Period based on date in table

I am trying to create a query that will update the accounting period based on the date in a table.

Attached is an example.
The tblCalendar has the accounting calendar.  The Date field is the first day of the accounting period.  
The tblTestDate has test data (dates).  I want to update the Period field based on the date in the TRX Date field.
What expression can I use in the qryPeriodUpdate query to return the correct period for the date in tblTestDate?

I appreciate any help.  Thank you.

This is quite simple as you have the week count for each period.

Hi,

it depends on what you think what is "correct" for you.

First some points about your queries:
Avoid using VBA domain aggregate functions where not really needed. Use subqueries instead.
"Date" should NEVER be used as a field or other object name as this is a keyword in VBA. At least set such words in square brackets like "[Date]", otherwise Access may try to use the Date function instead of using the field name.
If you want to use a date field as a constant value you need to surround that by "#" and also format the string in a way Access can accept. For example, this would work:
DMin("Period","tblCalendar","[Date]>=#" & Format([TRX Date],"yyyy-mm-dd") & "#") AS Period01But I'm not sure if the result you get is the one you want. I tried this instead, maybe this is what you want:
SELECT tblTestDate.[TRX Date], (SELECT TOP 1 Period FROM tblCalendar WHERE [Date] <= [TRX Date] ORDER BY Period DESC) AS Period1, (SELECT TOP 1 Period FROM tblCalendar WHERE [Date] >= [TRX Date] ORDER BY Period) AS Period2 FROM tblTestDate;

Cheers,

Christian

See attached. qryPeriodLookup lists all the combinations between the dates in tblCalendar and tblTestDate. Filter shows "Yes" when [TRXDate] falls between [Date] and [ToDate]. [ToDate is achived using Lookup. qryTestDatePeriods shows only the dates in qryPeriodLookup where filter ="Yes". qryPeriodUpdate uses the information found qryPeriodLookup to update tblTestDate.
