Default Conversion part of string to date

Hello Experts,

I have a date inside a string. I would like to extract the date from this string. I made a query which extracts part of the string.

Code:
SELECT Mid[IDCode],3,11) AS date, Unit, systemvalue, Type
FROM qryUnit
If I want to apply an filter with
 
Code:
 WHERE date BETWEEN #1/1/2000# AND #1/1/2003#


the query result is empty. I think that the problem lies in the filter date vs string.

How can I change this??

Your help is appriciated very much

Marc

How about this?

Code:
SELECT CDate(Mid([IDCode],3,11)) AS date, Unit, systemvalue, Type FROM qryUnit

My date is a string in the format of MMDDYY eg: 012904

I want to write a query to pull all the records with date greater than '01/29/04'

I have oracle background and there were nice functions like TO_DATE(columnname,'MM/DD/YY') to use in my query and I am wondering if there is anything like this in MS Access. If not, how do I solve this?

Thanks
Shanti

In your query, simply put this in the criteria row for your specific date field

  >=#1/29/04#

Oh, wait... your date is a string... you have to convert the string into a real date. See the post on that topic in this forum section.
