Converted from LINUX time ok, but having issues with the between date.

Hello,

I have a Microsoft Access database linked ready only into another DB. All times in this DB are in numbers. For example 1423496703 is actually 02/09/2015 3:45:03 PM. I was able to convert this using DateAdd('s',[open_date],"1970-01-01"). My issue is now doing a greater than or between date in criteria. I tried > '2014-12-31' and I got data type mismatch. So I tried
WHERE ((DateAdd('s',[open_date],"1970-01-01")>'2014-12-31'));
and got the same error. Any ideas?
Below is my SQL that works.

SELECT dbo_call_req.summary, dbo_call_req.description, DateAdd('s',[open_date],"1970-01-01") AS OpenDate
FROM dbo_call_req;

I tried
SELECT dbo_call_req.summary, dbo_call_req.description, DateAdd('s',[open_date],"1970-01-01") AS OpenDate
FROM dbo_call_req
Where DateAdd('s',[open_date],"1970-01-01") > "2014-12-31";

and I get the "Data type mismatch criteria expression."

Any ideas?

Date literals in Access must be delimited with octothorpes, not quotes, and
must be in either American mm/dd/yyyy format or (better) international
yyyy-mm-dd:

#1970-01-01#

will work in the above expressions.

True. But it does need volunteers. There have been fewer than ten questions
answered here in the past SIX MONTHS.

Thank you so much that worked. It was a hand slap to the head moment. I didn't realize this group was inactive. It has been a while since I posted anything.
