Solution 1

In Access, dates are denoted with a hash #.
 
Try:
 
select AMT from SomeTable where DateValue(TestDate) between #"+ format(fromdate, "yyyy/mm/dd") + "# and #"+ format(todate, "yyyy/mm/dd") +"#"
 
Also, it's a good idea to format your dates yyyy/mm/dd to avoid regional issues.

In most cases your query will resolve problem, but sometimes we need to use another formatting (US format): MM/dd/yyyy.
Anyway, +5!
