    I need a query that will grab records in the current month only. I know how
    to do this in visual basic using datepart("m",[recorddate]) =datepart
    ("m",now()) but how can I do it in the query?

    WHERE DateField >= DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date()), 1)
    AND DateField < DateSerial(Year(Date()), Month(Date()) + 1, 1)

    Tsison,

    Your Visual Basic example will only work if the data only covers the
    current year, otherwise you will get records for the same month in other
    years. If this is the case, in Access you can do...
    Month([recorddate])=Month(Date())
    Otherwise...
    Format([recorddate],"yyyymm")=Format(Date(),"yyyymm")

    Thanks Rick,

    Before your post I added two extra fields to grab the month and the year and
    filtered it that way using datepart. But your suggestion is much cleaner.

    I realized that once I ran the query. I went ended up using the dateserial
    function instead.

    Thanks,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
