Adding Between to stLinkCriteria


I just can't seem to get the syntex right for adding "Between" to link criteria when opening my report:

stLinkCriteria1 = "[ActualDate]=#" & Me![DateChecked] & "# And [EntryPoint]='" & Me![EntryPoint] & "' And [Background]='" & Me![Form1] & "'"

Open in new window

I want to add:

Between EntryPoint AND EntryPoint1  (a date range)

You were using ' instead of # around EntryPoint.  Dates require the #.  I also removed the noise square brackets.  They aren't necessary unless your controls contain non-standard characters.  I left them around Background since that could be a reserved word.

sorry, I changed this a still a syntex error...I used a field that wasn't a Date field by accident...

        stLinkCriteria = "[ActualDate]=#" & Me![DateChecked] & "# And [DateChecked] >=#" & Me![DateChecked] & "# And [DateChecked] <=#" & Me![DateChecked1] & "# And [EntryPoint]='" & Me![EntryPoint] & " And [Background]='" & Me![Form1] & "'"

You are missing an ending ' in this part of the expression.
