I have a report built in Excel 2013 using an OLE DB query to pull activity details from Act! (Sage ACT! Pro 2013 Version 18.104.22.168) into a table. I'm using Windows 7 on my computer.
I want to only pull data from Act after a certain date (01/01/2015). Is this possible? As it is it's pulling all the activity history, making it take too long to run.

here is an example of an SLQ query that uses the create date. Consider a similar query
SELECT dbo_TBL_CONTACT.FULLNAME, dbo_TBL_CONTACT.CREATEDATE

Thanks Jon, but when I pasted that into my query it said 'initialization of the data source failed', although it was able to refresh without that code. The current code I'm using is;
Provider=ACTOLEDB2.1;Data Source=<location>;User ID=<username>;Password=<password>;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=(Default);Extended Properties="";Location="";Mode=ReadWrite

i'd have to defer to a sql guy. It's tough for me to do an autopsy without seeing it.
I use both Crystal Reports and sometimes ACCEss to create reports
