RE: Date Functions

You really need to define what you expect your expressions to return for instance which Monday, Tuesday, ...? Is PreMonth all February or the same day of the month in the previous month?

Why add all the extra ()s. Some () as needed while those pairs on the far left and right are confusing.

There is a decent reference at Examples of using dates as criteria in Access queries
