Extracting Month and day from Date field


G

Guest

I need to create a query based upon the anniversay of employee hire dates.

Records should be limited to only those employees with anniversaries within
the next 60 days, so we can do annual reviews. How to I create another field
in a query that extracts just the month & date from the DateHired, and search
that field to see if the month and date are within 60 days from the current
date.

Several ways to do that. A relatively simple way is to use
a calculated field:

MonDay: Format(annivdate, "mmdd")

and the criteria would then be:

Between Format(Date(), "mmdd") And Format(DateAdd("d", 60,
Date(), "mmdd"))

Try the following

Field: DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(DateHired),Day(DateHired))
Criteria: Between Date() and DateAdd("d",60, Date()) OR Between
DateAdd("yyyy",-1,Date()) AND
DateSerial(Year(Date())-1,Month(Date()),Day(Date())+60)

You need the second part of the criteria to catch those whose DateHired is
in the last 60 days of the year
