Filter using a textbox date value on form

Filter using a textbox date value on form


Hello I am struggling with some code to get my form filer working.

Bacically I have a continuous form and I am filtering the records on an after upadte event. All is working OK with the code below:

CODE -->

Me.Form.Filter = "[Cand_Joint_Name_Long] LIKE '*" & Me.txt_Find_Name & "*'"
Me.Form.FilterOn = True 

I would like to modify this filter so it only displays records which have an added date on or equal to the value in a textbox on the form called: txt_Filter_Date_Added

Help much appreciated.



Me.Form.Filter = "[Cand_Joint_Name_Long] LIKE '*" & Me.txt_Find_Name & "*'"

RE: Filter using a textbox date value on form

Did you try:


Me.Form.Filter = "[Cand_Joint_Name_Long] LIKE '*" & Me.txt_Find_Name & "*' AND DateField = #" & txt_Filter_Date_Added & "#"
Me.Form.FilterOn = True

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
