Hello all.

I have a date that I import that is formatted YYYYMMDD. So I created a query with this SQL:

Time Period: Left([Time Period Code],4) & "/" & Mid([Time Period Code],5,2) & "/" & Right([Time Period Code],2)

Then I used Date Formatted: Format(CDate([Time Period]),"mm/dd/yyyy") and the date now appears as MM/DD/YYYY like I want it to.

However, when I use Between[Start Date]AND[End Date] in the criteria I get the message "You tried to execute a query that does not include the specific expression ...... as part of an aggregate function".

I need to be able to query by date range. Any suggestions? Thanks.

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

That's nothing to do with the date format; sounds like you have a totals query and the date expression is not set up as Group By.

Even by changing it to a Group By .... I don't get the desired results.

When you have a date that was obtained from an expression, how does one query between two dates? Thanks.

You will most likely need to use the whole expression again, in the new calculation. Access generally doesn't store those intermediate results.
