Question
I have an access 2007 database and I need to set up a criteria to only pull the last 5 of our data so that we can calculate and average

Answer
Use a TOP X query. Create a query with the data you need sorted by DATE DESCENDING. Then in the options at the top select TOP 5 VALUES. I cover this in my Access Beginner 5 class.
