Enter new date based on record plus combo record

Enter new date based on record plus combo record

Hi All

thought this would be simple, turns out for me its not...

I m trying to do the following

I have a "Startdate" field on a form, and a combo box "comboMonths" and an enddate field, based on the user choosing a date in startdate and then selecting either 3, 6 or 12 from the combo box, I m looking for the enddate to be calculated using startdate+combomonths value

I ve tried this on after combo update function but get errors...

Dim Enddate, Startdate As Date

If Combo49.Value = "3" Then
Enddate = Startdate.AddMonths(3)
ElseIf Combo49.Value = "6" Then
Enddate = Startdate.AddMonths(6)
ElseIf Combo49.Value = "12" Then
Enddate = Startdate.AddMonths(12)
End If

would appreciate if anyone can help!


RE: Enter new date based on record plus combo record


EndDate = DateSerial(Year(StartDate), Month(StartDate) + ComboMonths, Day(StartDate))

for a NUance!tongue

RE: Enter new date based on record plus combo record

EndDate = DateAdd("m", ComboMonths, StartDate)

Have fun.
