need help with syntax for a date

Hi,

I have this expression in a query. I can't figure out how to get the date the user will enter to work with the criteria.

DLookUp("res_begin_start","zoom meetings tab","zoom_meeting_date=" & #[Please enter meeting date: mm/dd/yyyy]#)

Thank you!

RE: need help with syntax for a date

It might help if you provided the entire SQL view of the query and tell us what happens when you try your expression.

You could try:

CODE --> Expression

DLookUp("res_begin_start","zoom meetings tab","zoom_meeting_date=#" & [Please enter meeting date: mm/dd/yyyy] & "#")
