Add a day field to your query like this:

DaysAgo: DateDiff("d",[YourDate],Now())

This will tell you how many days ago it was.

Then add a criteria to this field like this:

>=29 And <=38

This will limit the result to all records that are between 29 and 38 days old.

Thank you very much.. I am going to give it a shot. Because I will use this query on a regular basis, I am wondering if I will have to the current date every time i run it ..
