Dates in Microsoft Access

I am working on an Access database to store clients info. On my field, I have got Next_Guarantee_Date. I am trying to create a button so that on click of that button, a query should be run, and the list of all clients who have guarantee dates due in 3-4 weeks time would be displayed. I have tried adjusting the SQL statement on the design view in the query, but all to no avail. Please, how can I go about that?

Can't help you with the button (perhaps The Access Web can), but the SQL is straightforward --

select * from clients
 where Next_Guarantee_Date
       between DateAdd("ww", 3, Date())
           and DateAdd("ww", 4, Date())

Enter this in SQL view and then you should be able to see how to do it by switching to Design view.
