    Filter not effective

    I have a report where its code sheet is coded as follows:



    Option Compare Database
    Option Explicit
    Dim Indate As Date
    Const Prompt As String = "Enter date after which funds have been received" & vbNewLine & _
    "and which are now subject to deposit."

    Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.lblHeader.Caption = "Registrar's Bank Deposits for " & gblRetreatYear

    Indate = InputBox(Prompt, "Deposit Summary Report")
    Me.lblDepositDate.Caption = "(For funds received after " & Indate & " )"

    Me.Filter = "RetYear = " & """" & gblRetreatYear & """" & " AND RecDate > " & Indate
    Debug.Print Me.Filter
    Me.FilterOn = True
    End Sub


    In the immediate window, the value for Me.Filter is: RetYear = "2013" AND RecDate > 03/19/2013

    "RetYear" is text and "RecDate" is date, as included in the RecordSource query for the report. gblRetreatYear is global and is Dim'd as text.

    The report IS NOT being filtered to exclude "RecDates" prior to "03/19/2013", as entered via InputBox.

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Try

    Me.Filter = "RetYear = " & """" & gblRetreatYear & """" & " AND RecDate > #" & Indate & "#"

    Paul,
    That did the trick.
    WOW! That's a new one on me. The use of pound (#) suggests clarification of formatting. Is that what's going on here?

    The # is generally needed as a delimiter for a date value. Quotes for text, # for dates, nothing for numbers. You'll notice in a query if you type in a date as a criteria on a date/time field, Access will add the #.

    You realize you're getting closer to a FREE lunch.
