How search for records based on a specified date range

I have several unbound field on a "Search Form".  I also have a command button in the footer of the form.  The onclick event of the command button currently has this code:

Dim s As String

    If Nz(Me.txtRecordID, "") <> "" Then
        s = s & " [RecordID] Like '*" & Me.txtRecordID & "*'"
    End If

    If Nz(Me.txtPRn, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [PRn] Like '*" & Me.txtPRn & "*'"
    End If

    If Nz(Me.txtSKUn, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [SKUn] Like '*" & Me.txtSKUn & "*'"
    End If

    If Nz(Me.txtRevisionDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] Like '*" & Me.txtRevisionDate & "*'"
    End If

    If Len(s) > 0 Then
        s = "SELECT * FROM [tblRecords] WHERE " & s & " Order by [RecordID]"
    Else
        s = "SELECT * FROM [tblRecords] " & " Order by [RecordID]"
    End If

    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmRecordsHeader", acNormal, , , acFormReadOnly, acWindowNormal
    
    Forms!frmRecordsHeader.Form!subfrmRecordsDS.Form.RecordSource = s

Open in new window


But on the form I will have two date fields.  txtStartDate and txtEndDate.  So instead of this part of the code:

    If Nz(Me.txtRevisionDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] Like '*" & Me.txtRevisionDate & "*'"
    End If

Open in new window


I want to search where RevisionDate is between txtStartDate and txtEndDate.  How would I handle this?  What would the code:

    If Nz(Me.txtRevisionDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] Like '*" & Me.txtRevisionDate & "*'"
    End If

I've tried this but it doesn't work:

    If Nz(Me.txtStartDate, "") <> "" And Nz(Me.txtEndDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN # & [txtStartDate] & # AND # & [txtEndDate] & #"
        
    End If

    If Nz(Me.txtStartDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then s = s & " AND "
        s = s & "([RevisionDate] >=  #" & Me.txtStartDate & "#)"
    End If

'I use the following syntax to make certain that if the RevisionDate field contains a time
'component, then all of the records pertaining to that date are included in the results.
    If Nz(Me.txtEndDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then s = s & " AND "
        s = s & "([RevisionDate] <  #" & DateAdd("d", 1, Me.txtEndDate) & "#)"
    End If

Dale,  Your suggested code doesn't seem to be working.  I'm getting no records when I click the command button

You just miss some quotes and - to play safe - to apply a forced format of the date expressions:

s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN #" & Format([txtStartDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "# AND #" & Format([txtEndDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "#"

Still getting no re3cords with:

    If Nz(Me.txtStartDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then s = s & " AND "
        s = s & "([RevisionDate] >=  #" & Me.txtStartDate & "#)"
    End If

    If Nz(Me.txtEndDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then s = s & " AND "
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN #" & Format([txtStartDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "# AND #" & Format([txtEndDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "#"
    End If

Just for kicks I put this after the last line:

MsgBox s

And got:

you need to remove the first set of code

    If Nz(Me.txtRevisionDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then
            s = s & " AND "
        End If
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] Like '*" & Me.txtRevisionDate & "*'"
    End If

get rid of that and just use the code for txtStartDate and txtEndDate

Still no records with:  (Note I changed the formatting because I thought that might be the issue.  It didn't work either way)

    If Nz(Me.txtEndDate, "") <> "" Then
        If Len(s) > 0 Then s = s & " AND "
'        s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN #" & Format([txtStartDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "# AND #" & Format([txtEndDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "#"
        
        
        s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN #" & Format([txtStartDate], "mm\/dd\/yyyy") & "# AND #" & Format([txtEndDate], "mm\/dd\/yyyy") & "#"
        
    End If

Your message clearly shows your error.
I assumed your second code, thus:

If Nz(Me.txtStartDate, "") <> "" And Nz(Me.txtEndDate, "") <> "" Then
    If Len(s) > 0 Then
        s = s & " AND "
    End If
    s = s & " [RevisionDate] BETWEEN #" & Format([txtStartDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "# AND #" & Format([txtEndDate], "yyyy\/mm\/dd") & "#"
End If

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.  Please see attached test file.  Enter 9/6/2005 and 4/11/2007 in the bottom two fields.  Then click [Search].  Nothing shows up in the results form.  Two records should show up.
