Open form based on date field criteria

I'm designing a database for my company and am attempting to create a calendar-like form for scheduling and whatnot. I want the user to be able to double click a specific calendar date and have a form pop up with all the items scheduled for that day.

However, I'm having trouble using a date as a criteria for the pop up form. This is what I have so far:
Unfortunately the form loads blank, because the date criteria doesn't pass anything.

Query criteria based on a form field
I am trying to open a report from a form using data from a field on the form as the criteria for the report query. I will try to explain.

I can get the report to open when the form field reads a single criteria like "Cross Country". My problem comes when I try to get the report to open when the field says Varsity Soccer or JV Soccer.

If I put *soccer* directly in the query criteria the report opens. If I put *soccer* in the form field and then get the query to read the criteria from the form, the report will not open.

I have also tried "Varsity soccer or JV soccer" in the field and it still does not work.

What other wording can I use to get all the Varsity soccer and JV soccer names to open in the report? Or what other approach should I use?

Filtering a Report
I will never again put ACCESS on my resume.serves me right for lying…

I am currently lost with what should be the easiest thing.

I have a report, based on a query, that is opened through an "open report" button on a form. This form also includes 2 filter criteria: "client" and "date" The appropriate criteria is setup on the query so that when I fill in these blanks, the report opens up nice and filtered.


What if I ONLY want to filter by ONE of these criteria, e.g date, leaving the other one blank? And vice versa? or what If I want to leave both blank, and just open the report with no filters? Is there a way to do this?

I tried having two buttons to open two duplicate reports, one with and one without filters. This is most likely not the most efficient way, but it works. However, it only works with one filter. I need 2, possibly more.

One more thing. The DATE criteria is entered by specifying a start date and an end date. So if I want to look up the records for March, I'd select the first and the last day of march.Ideally, but not necessary, I would like to have 2 dropdown lists, one with the 12 months and one with a list of years, and filter it that way.

Sub Form Disappears When I add new field
1. I have a main form, single form, where you select criteria. Meal name, Meal ID, Start Date and End date.

2. You click the button Find Meals which only has the code me.refresh.

3. The sub form is based on a select query that reads the criteria off the main form and refreshes the sub form (continuous form) with the correct data. See Pic 1.

4. The select query is based on one table. See Pic 2.

I add one additional field from the table to the query. I then add the field to the sub form.

When I reopen the main form the sub form has disappeared from the screen. I select the same criteria in the parent form and click the button and nothing shows up. See Pic 3.

How To Open A Subform Based On A Criteria
Basics: I'm running a SQL server 2008 R2 back end with an Access 2007 Front end.

I need to find a way of opening up a main form and one of several possible sub forms depending on a criteria. A more literal way of putting it is
I'm trying to, based on an on click open up a form and also open up a sub form within that form based on state. We have a main table and several other tables that contain information based on state. The main form will be based on the main
table and holds our ID# and State. What I need to do is be able to open a states
table in the sub form based on what state is listed in our main table.

there a query I can create that will do this using Joins between all the different state tables?

Query Criteria Question
I have a sub form in MS Access 2010 that is based on a couple of textboxes on the main form. One of those textboxes is for the user to enter a date value.

In the query I have a date field where the criteria is set for that text box. The issue is that sometimes the user doesn't know the date and leaves it blank. Instead of getting all dates for the person on the main form it returns nothing. I tried adding a column that referred to that textbox and set the criteria = Null and set that criteria in a different row then the date field so in SQL my query looks like

Select field1,field2,.
From MyTable
Where entereddate = forms!myform!dtvalue Or forms!myform!dtvalue Is null.

I have the main form and subform linked on the memberid but as soon as I add that to the query save and test MS Access crashes and exits.

Date Criteria from form to query!
I work on a form where I have four comboboxes for : Category , Product, Month , Year , 2 buttons for search and clear .
When I open the form there are all data displayed on a subform.When I choose criteria and hit search the subform filters out the results.
Now I have to add 2 more textboxes for Start Date and End Date.
I ve done this and have put the following expression to the criteria field in the query I am working with:
Between [Forms]![SearchForm]![StartDate] AND [Forms]![SearchForm]![EndDate]

So now I have the problem that I have to enter some dates on the two textboxes so that the subform displays some results else I get a blank subform .

Does anyone know how to display all data bypassing the criteria and if there are dates entered filter them by date?

Weekday excluding weekends
I have a query that pulls data from a Due Date column based on the date. I want to see what I missed from yesterday.

However on Monday it shows me Sunday. I want it to instead skip Saturday/Sunday and use Friday if it is Monday but I cannot for the life of me accomplish this. I've used Google and attempted to use Weekday, DatePart and VBA code but cannot get something that seems to simple to work.

The Due Date field is in date/time format (1/1/2010 4:30 PM) I have it formatted to just the date as it made pulling the data based on the criteria easier (Format([Due Date],"mm/dd/yyyy")
The criteria currently used with the Due Date field is Format((Date())-1,"mm/dd/yyyy

Examples of query criteria
When you want to limit the results of a query based on the values in a field, you use query criteria. A query criterion is an expression that Access compares to query field values to determine whether to include the record that contains each value.

Date and Time Filter
I've tried searching for a solution to my problem but to no avail.

I have a query with a field name Date

Field: Date
Criteria: Between Date() and Date()-1

The criteria above works just for filtering between those two dates, but what I would like to do is to filter with date and time I would like to filter between todays date starting at 8:00 AM and Yesterdays date at 8:00 AM how would I go about doing something like this? I've tried many different combination but none seems to work

I tried putting something like this in the criteria:
Criteria: Between Date()<#08:00:00AM# and Date()-1>#08:00:00AM#
that does not work either I'm pretty much out of ideas

Open a from on todays Date
I have a form where I need to open it based upon the present date. The query has a date field in it. Each day is one record and cannot be dupicated either. So basically, I want to be able to have the form open and point to either a new record - Now()- and also reopen and point to dDate=Now(). Does this make sense. For example - I open up the form for the first time today and it would open up to a 'new' record since today has not been recored yet. I then close the form and reopen it later today to update todays information and it would open up to today again. I tried different methods in the properties page using a filter and does not work

problem with date criteria
I have a query in which I add a number of days to a given date. This gives the "next date due" for the particular function. In the criteria of the expression field, I have entered "between[start date] and [end date].

Generating a Query based on specific data
I generated a query to pull date based on a date range entered.

For the Date Field I entered under the criteria:
>=[Enter Start Date:] And <=[Enter End Date:]

I want the query to generate only for the records that have "Pick Up" under the Delivery Type field. (this field in the table is a drop down menu with 3 options.

For the Delivery Type field I entered under the criteria:
="Pick Up"

I thought this would work but I get this error message:

"This expression is typed incorrectly, or it is too complex to be evaluated. For example, a numeric expression may contain too many complicated elements. Try simplifying the expression by assigning parts of the expression to variables."

Date range query using data from form
I currently have a query that has the user enter a starting date and an ending date. What I would like to do is use a form with two date pickers and have the query use the two date pickers for the criteria, but I'm not sure what the syntax would be in the criteria field in the query. If I new what the structure of the criteria had to follow I can fill in the text box names, control box names, form name, etc. Sorry for so many posts, but it just seems that all of the google searching in the world just keeps giving me VB code that someone has written.

IIf(([Forms]![Switchboard1]![Issue_Filter_Form]![NewTransmit])=1,Is Null,[Date Transmitted])

Can I change a FONT based on condition?
I have two different date fields. One for the date due, and one for the received date.

What I want to do is this.

If the Received Date is past the Due Date, I want the received date to be RED.

I don't need it to do this in the table, just in the report, which is based on a query. Can I put a criteria formula in the Query for that field?

Date and Time Criteria from a Control on a Form
If you want to change the criteria argument for an operation based on a user's decision, you can specify that the criteria comes from a control on a form. For example, you could specify that the criteria argument comes from a list box containing order dates from an Orders table.
