i have some code that is assembled in code see below, the code is assembled see below for the result

strSQL = "SELECT DATE1, RaceNo, Gate, Track, Distance FROM greyhound " & _
                " WHERE (((greyhound.DATE1)=#" & DateVal & "#) AND ((greyhound.RaceNo)='" & rsDao![RaceNo] & "') AND ((greyhound.Track)='" & rsDao![Track] & "')) And ((Distance) Is Null)"
     '   MsgBox strSQL
        Set recExists = dbs.OpenRecordset(strSQL, dbOpenDynaset)
        Do While recExists.EOF = False
            recExists![Distance] = rsDao![Distance]

result of assembled sql result

SELECT DATE1, RaceNo, Gate, Track, Distance FROM greyhound  WHERE (((greyhound.DATE1)=#2/11/2017#) AND ((greyhound.RaceNo)='9') AND ((greyhound.Track)='GOS')) And ((Distance) Is Null)

the date that is returned is the   #2/11/2017#
there are records there but does  not find them but they do exist.

photo of query with date translation
if the sql is copied form the code and then placed in the sql build area then switched to the design view the date gets transposed from 2/11/2017  to 11/2/2017
my question is why is this happening
i have run it using 31/10/2017 and it works fine as there is no 31 month doe not change
but the 2/11/2017 does
any ideas on what is happening why and what i can do about it
thanks for you help in advnce
