    Past Due Query

    I have a table with a "date created" field that marks when that paticular record was imported into the table. The analyst is supposed to render a decision using the decision combo box within 30 days.

    So in the criteria i have the no decision part down, but I cant seem to get the query to only show me items that have been out there for thirty days or longer. Any help with how I would write this criteria?

    Try

    WHERE DateCreated < Date() - 30

    Thanks! Tried the first one and it worked. The second suggestion did not return any results at all so I am not sure why the second one didn't work. Thanks for the help!

    Glad it worked for you. Alan's would have returned those with a date created greater than 30 days from today (Aug 5 or later).
