[mso] Re: Access 2002: Date Filter Formula Calculation Help Needed!

Cathy--

My gusee would be that the dates from the alien table probably aren't stored
as dates. You can try coercing the data into a date first using the Cdate
function:

DataFilter: IIf(DateDiff('yyyy', CDate([Year]), Now()) > 2, "Yes", "No")

Please let me know.

Thanks, Jim, I'm always forgetting about DateDiff.  I'm wondering if there's
something about the 'Year' field that's not right.  Still getting all 'Yes'
unless the field is null.  Here's a sample of results.  Also noticed a
couple of the dates are 2 digit.  I really don't know that much about how
they have their table set up, I only extract the data, then do
calculations/reporting on it.  Could there be a problem with this field is
why only the nulls are returning a 'No', and not the dates 2 years and back?
What do you think?  Thanks again, Cathy

Year  DateFilter
2004  Yes
04    Yes
2005  Yes
2005  Yes

Cathy--

You gotta love the DateDiff function. Give this a try:

DataFilter: Iif(DateDiff('yyyy', [Year], Now()) > 2, "Yes", "No")
