Date Format for Import to Access

Date Format for Import to Access

I am attempting to pull data from large (20 million + records) Teradata tables into access.  The tables contain records for an entire month, and I want to be able to pull only the records for the previous day.  I have not been successful in pulling records by date using traditional SQL (#9/26/2006#).  The field in the Teradata table is a DATE field, so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  Any ideas?  Thanks!!

RE: Date Format for Import to Access

Use the current date and subtract 1, you don't need a parameterized query:

Select * from Tab1
Where Tab1.datecol = Current_date - 1;

RE: Date Format for Import to Access

Thanks for the quick response, Bill.  However, Access does not recognize the Current_date function.  Our goal is to pull data from Teradata tables into Access directly, without having to use SQL Assistant.  Is this possible?  Thanks again!

RE: Date Format for Import to Access

Access does have a current_date function, DATE().  The following was put in the Criteria Row of the query design wizard:  >=Date()-30.
