Help with DCount Syntax

thandel asked
Last Modified: 2017-11-08
I am using Dcount to look if a field (CL - String) in a table has a particular date of another field (DiscoDiag - Date) in MS Access 2003.

I'm testing with the following VBA line but getting an error.  I believe its just my syntax or placement of quotes.  I want to put up a message when the date of DiscoDiag is after todays date.  Any help is appreciated.

If DCount("*", "tCl", "CL = """ & sFindODBrand & """ And DiscoDiag < Now()""") > 0 Then MsgBox "BAM!"
