Re: [MS_AccessPros] Dcount in a Query



Try this:

DCount("id","matches", "[Books] = 0 AND [Div] ='" & [Div] & "' AND [Refid]=" & [forms]![referees]![id] & " AND [mdate] BETWEEN IIf([date1] IS NULL,#2000-01-01#, #" & Format([date1], "yyyy-mm-dd") & "# AND IIf([date2] IS NULL,#2099-12-31#, #" & Format([date2], "yyyy-mm-dd") & "#")

It's clear from the date constants you provided that you're on a non-US machine.  Date literals in SQL (which is what DCount generates from your parameters) must always be in US format in Access or some "universal" format such as I used above.

I seem to struggle with the criteria syntax in the Dcount function used in a query!

I have a fairly complicated query but I will try to condense it down to the minimum required to answer my question

In this query I have one table called Matches and the fields in the table I am interested in are called






It is a query grouped by Div and I want to include all the records for a given refid and between entered dates (Date1 and Date2)

But then for that set of records I want to count the number of records where Books has a certain value (say 0) for each of the grouped Divs

The first bit is not an issue but my Dcount to achieve the 2nd bit is confusing

I am using Dcount("id","matches", "Criteria")

where I want "Criteria" to do the following 

[Books] = 0 and

[Div] ='" & [Div] & "' and                (this is to give me the count per grouping)

[Refid]=[forms]![referees]![id] and

[mdate] between Iif([date1] is null,#01/01/2000#,[date1])

            and        Iif([date2] is null,#31/12/2099#,[date2])

it is the syntax for the date bit that I am struggling with.

If anyone can help to clarify this I would appreciate it.
