Total text between two dates.

Post by adam »

I want to create a sql query for my excel vba that would total the text "SL" between the last 2nd of June and today.

For example;

Textbox1 has  date as 06/02
Textbox2 has 07/31/2021

When I run the query the total of SL between these two dates will be displayed in Textbox3.

Any help on this would be kindly appreciated.
Best Regards,
Adam

You'd don;t provide sufficient relevant information, so I can only provide vague help. You'd need to open a recordset based on a SQL string like this:

Code: Select all

    strSQL = "SELECT Sum([SL]) AS Total FROM [MyTable] WHERE [DateField] Between #" & _
        Format(Me.TextBox1, "mm/dd/yyyy") & "# And #" & Format(Me.TextBox2, "mm/dd/yyyy") & "#"

Apparently I haven't interpreted your question correctly. Can you explain more clearly what you want?

I want to count the total number of records that has "SL" in column "status" between dates in textbox1 and textbox2.

The date in textbox1 should be formatted as "mm/dd" only where the date in textbox2 is formatted as "mm/dd/yyyy".

Let's say for an example;

The user writes 06/02 in textbox1 and if the access table date column has 06/02/2020 and 06/02/2021 I want the code to count from 06/02/2021 and todays date in textbox2 where then the code would count/sumup or total the text "SL" based on that date and todays date.

I hope I've made the question clear.

Adam

Does TextBox2 always contain today's date?

Try

Code: Select all

    strSQL = "SELECT Count(*) AS Total FROM [MyTable] WHERE [Status]='SL' AND ([DateField] Between #" & _
        Me.TextBox1 & "/" & Year(Date) & "# And Date())"
