I'm having a problem witht he currentdate part:
if I substitute "02/15/2004" for CurrentDate it works
Do I need to format CurrentDate? how should I decalre it?

You shouldn't have to worry about formatting.

WHERE dateColumn <= Date()

or better yet, if dateColumn has time information,

WHERE dateColumn < DATEADD("d", 1, Date())
