Using form to enter "query criteria" (between values)

Good morning everyone,

I want to create a form with two boxes, where first box is lower limit of 
the value and the second upper limit. This values should be used in my query 
as filter criteria.

Like this (query filter criteria): > "textbox1" AND < "textbox2"

Does anyone know how I can build this in a form (i.e. connect my textboxes 
and query criteria)?

By thinking about for another minute I found the (simple) answer.

In the query criteria I put the following expression:

BETWEEN [forms].[nameofform].[NameofDatefield1]  AND 

Where 1 and 2 are the names of the textboxes in my form.

That will work... if the table field contains only pure dates without a time
component. Otherwise it will miss records on the last day of the range. 

It may also cause problems if users enter variant date formats (day-month-year
in a system defaulting to month-day-year for example).

I'd suggest doing two things: include 

PARAMETERS [forms].[nameofform].[NameofDatefield1] DateTime,
[forms].[nameofform].[NameofDatefield2] DateTime;

prior to the SQL statement, and use a criterion

>= CDate([forms].[nameofform].[NameofDatefield1])  AND < DateAdd("d", 1, CDate([forms].[nameofform].[NameofDatefield2]))

IN SELECT Query Criteria
I think I read somewhere that using an "IN SELECT..." type of query will speed up your query performance in Access 2003 better than linking the two tables by their common field. Is that correct? If so, what is the proper syntax for creating this type of query criteria? My scenario is that I have a very long list (1000's) of employees and a select group of managers (about 30). I only want the employees whose manager is in my table of selected managers. I should end up with a list of <200. Is this a good way to use the "IN Select.." as my criteria? -- THX cs ...

If I put Is Null or Not Like "CL", it will return the blank rows.

How to select fields using either query criteria or a macro
I have created a database which logs operational data for an industrial water plant. I want to output a table of the data, based on inputs from the user. I've created a form where the user can enter a date range for the data they want to view, and a series of check boxes which correspond with the fields in the underlying table. In order to restrict the output data to the date range and fields required by the database user, I have created a query. My problem is that I can't seem to find a way to link the check boxes on my form to the 'show' checkbox in the query. ...

Numerical query criteria and quotation marks
I have a query that uses a criteria of >"269.9". I realized it was not working because the format of the field being queried was text. I successfully altered the format of the source field to double.

What I have is a table listing vehicle inspection standards. A vehicle tag number, and then 50 fields such as, wipers inop, headlight inop, etc. My fields are numeric, because there is a point system used to determine a pass/fail. I input the tag number, and if the specific area is deficient, I enter either a 10 or a 25 for point values. What I end up with, is a table with tag numbers and then fields showing p...

I know I can do one form NotPaid, the other Overdue, then show both pages. I am trying to avoid that. You need an Or statement.

Problem with using query criteria
I have a column named "DATE". The way the information is set up is, YYYYMMDD. I need to run a query by YYYY. In other words, i need to filter everything that is in year 2000 but i have information from 1999-2003. How can i run this query with this criteria. First you need to change the name of the Date field. Date is a reserved word and should not be used for a field name. YYYYMMDD is a text format so you can use a text function to get the year.

using text box as query criteria
I have a form with a subform. My main form has a text box wich is used in the query expression of my subform. In the KeyUp event of the text box I refresh the forms. This works to filter my subform each time a new character is entered into the text box. My problem is every time a key is pressed the refresh selects the entire contents of the text box. each new letter you type replaces the last making it impossible to type an entire word. Is there and easy work around. Is there a way to mimic the end key behavior in code? TIA, Tim On Fri, 23 Feb 2007 16:11:05 -0800, "Tim ...
