Date buttons

I have a date displayed in a text box
i then have 2 command buttons.
Saying forward and back
if the user presses the forward date button it will increment the date by 1 and so on and the same for the back button. It must automatically be able to move from one month to the next
my date format is yyyy/mm/dd

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe this is what you are looking for.

For this demo I have
1 text box   Text1
2 Command buttons  Command1 and Command2

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Text1.Text = Format(DateAdd("d", 1, Text1.Text), "YYYY/MM/DD")
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Text1.Text = Format(DateAdd("d", -1, Text1.Text), "YYYY/MM/DD")
End Sub

This code should probably be modified to first check for a valid date in the text box etc.

Hope that helps.
