Date() function in MS Access 2010

3,653 Recognized Expert Moderator Specialist
Hey coders,

Has anyone heard anything about the Date() function no longer working (or working differently in MS Access 2010? I have an MS Access 2007 DB that has worked perfectly, however, we have a bunch of machines running on the same front end, and the machine with MS Access 2010 generates an error that the function cannot be found in the line of code that uses that function.

Any ideas?

This is the line of the query that generates the error:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. (((tblProjects.ReleaseDate)<=Date()-60) AND ((Sum(IIf([Status]=4,0,1)))=0))

I use the date function in Access 2010 alot, without noticing any problems.

Is the application "Trusted"?

Our Network Nazis may have changed that for the new systems. I'll give a look and see what I can find. Thanks!

Did I read that correctly???
You have a single front-end that multple users are opening from the same file?
You have v2007 and v2010 opening that same file?

Ouch. I think you may have a file-locking issue

What you've posted I suspect is only a part of the actual code: Please post the err.num , err.desciption that your V2010 is tossing your way.

I have had the same issue in Access 2010 where I have the default value of a textbox being Date(). How I ended up fixing it was to create a new database and copy and paste everything into the new one, including the form that was having the issue. It worked fine. It seems like it might be a bug where the function just stopped working. I had even tried using the Now() function and it didn't work until I made the new database.

No, it's not the same file. The same FE is downloaded locally, then opened. Experience taught me not to do otherwise.....

Here's the latest: The file is trusted; no apparent security issues. But, here's the real kicker, when I download a non-compiled version of the FE to the 2010 machine and compile it there, I have no issues. But, if I compile it on my 2007 machine, I get the

"Function is not available in expressions in query expression '(((tblProjects .ReleaseDate)<= Date()-60) AND ((Sum(IIf([Status]=4,0,1)))=0)'.

as an error. So, it could either be the Date() or IIf() or the Sum() functions..... Either way, it's not like it's some sort of strange user created function that gets all jacked up 'n' all. These are pretty standard features.....

What is even STRANGER, is that this db worked fine YESTERDAY--same code, compiled on same machine. Are there some 2007-2010 compatibility issues that would cause this?

I've been trouble shooting this all day, but to no avail....

Any guesses?

OK.... More gouge. When I recreate this query, and use the Date() function in the criteria, the db tells me

"The function you entered can't be used in this expression."

Supplementary reason given:

"You may have used an aggregate function, such as Count, in a design grid or in a calculated control or field."

What? Did MS Change the rules for their queries all of a sudden? This is really whacked, as I have been using functions in criteria like this for years.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrr.....

I've read where the references vba\tools\refer ences can get buggered when the database is used between the two 2007/2010.
I'd double check those first - see if anything thing is marked as missing on the 2010 machine.

Z- Good thought.... all referenced references present. I'm in the processs of trying Seth's suggestion. Believe it or not (Oh my!) I've done this before for other DB stoppage issues. A total copy and paste of all objects sometimes does the trick, so we will see how this goes......

Twinny, You may find Converting to Access 2007 or 2010 to be useful in your looking into this issue.

I am having the strangest problem. I use the Date function in several of my forms and modules in an Access 2000 mdb. Lately, wherever in my code (in this one mdb) I use the Date function, it changes to date (lower case vs proper case). I can fix this very temporarily by reconstructing the database (importing all objects to a new mdb) or using the decomplie option to open it. But in either case, once I compile it reverts back to lower case....

I made a simple public function to set and return a date value (see below). I have a number of queries that call up the function to get the "As Of Date," which is typically set to today's date.

This generally works fine, but, sometimes, the date gets reset to something WAY in the past...

I have numerous applications built in Access 2000/2003 that all use ODBCdirect workspaces to access various non-Access databases. Unfortunately, ODBCdirect is 'no longer supported'in Access 2010 and when my associates get new PC's, the applications fail. The error message says to switch from DAO to ADO. This is a little curious since ADO is dying/dead as well. I'm hoping someone can add a little insight/best practice to my situation.
