    Unhappy Unanswered: Crosstab Query Error please help!

    Let me start out by saying I am the most basic user on the planet. Everything I have read allready has mostly just confused me.

    I am trying to have a Report that I built from a Crosstab Query open between specified dates.

    I have.....

    Entered in the Criteria under Date:

    Between "[Forms]![Which Date?]![Start Date]" And "[Forms]![Which Date?]![Finish Date]"

    Entered in the Paramaters:

    [Forms]![Which Date?]![Start Date] with a data type of Date/Time

    [Forms]![Which Date?]![Finish Date] with a data type of Date/Time

    Built a form (called Which Date?) with:

    2 unbound text boxes called Start Date and Finish Date

    I am getting an error message that says:

    This expression is typed incorrectly, or it is too complex to be evaluated. For example, a numeric expression may contain too many complicated elements. Try simplifying the expression by assigning parts of the expression to variable.

    What is that about?

    Other details I should mention

    -The Crosstab Query is built from another query that is built on a couple of tables.

    -I really am not up on database lingo, so please talk down to me.

    Hi Alesha, and welcome to the forum,......

    try your phrase without the quotes ("), that should work

    Between [Forms]![Which Date?]![Start Date] And [Forms]![Which Date?]![Finish Date]
    if that fails consider explicitly telling the query to excpet a date value
    Between cdate([Forms]![Which Date?]![Start Date]) And cdate([Forms]![Which Date?]![Finish Date])
    if that fails consider putting the date between hash symbols (#).

    However I'm pretty certain that removing the quotes will do the job.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Smile Thanks, but......

    Thanks, it did work, but for some reason I get four promts. (2 for start Date and 2 for finish date)

    Any idea why?
