VBA Filter problem

VBA Filter problem

VBA Filter problem

Can someone help me with the following, which is not working for me.

Thank you Mark

CODE -->

Me.Form.Filter = [Ten_Lease_Start_Date] < DateAdd("yyyy", -6, Int(Now())) 

RE: VBA Filter problem

What makes you think it's not working?
Have you tried just Date() in place of Int(Now())?

RE: VBA Filter problem

The code sets True/False to Filter, a string should be instead:
Me.Form.Filter = "[Ten_Lease_Start_Date] < " & DateAdd("yyyy", -6, Date())


RE: VBA Filter problem

I my opinion, the safest way to do it is:


Dim strFilter As String
strFilter = "Ten_Lease_Start_Date < " & DateAdd("yyyy", -6, Date())
Debug.Print strFilter
Me.Form.Filter = strFilter 

So you can actually SEE your filter before you apply it.

BTW, you do not need [] around your field's name if you do not use spaces or reserved words in your fields' names.
