That's because your dates include time. So have the expression DateValue(RecordedDate]) and filter on that, or ensure that clean dates without a time part are entered.

Hi

This should also work

SELECT tblRecords.ID, tblRecords.RecordDate
FROM tblRecords
WHERE (((tblRecords.RecordDate)>=Date())) and (((tblRecords.RecordDate)<=Date()+1));

Open in new window

The second part of Wilder's suggestion needs to be just < rather than <=.  You don't want midnight tomorrow to satisfy the criteria.

That would include dates of next day at Midnight as well.
But you could use:

WHERE tblRecords.RecordDate Between Date() And Date() + #23:59:59#;

or

WHERE (((tblRecords.RecordDate)>=Date())) and (((tblRecords.RecordDate)<Date()+1));
