Default Selecting the last 10 records from a specific date

A query that would look something like the following.

SELECT TOP 10 NameField, DateField
FROM SomeTable
WHERE DateField = Date()

In query design view
== Add the table
== Add the two fields
== Under the DateField enter criteria
= Date()
== Set the datefield to sort DESCending
== In the query properties, set Top Values to 10

This will return ties for the last position.
