Sure thing, you can use the.. hold on to ya hat now... the Year(Date), Month(Date), Day(Date), Hour(Date), Minute(Date) functions. For example...

Me.Caption = Year(Now)       'shows the year number
Me.Caption = Month(Now)    'shows the month number
Me.Caption = Day(Now)        'shows the day number
Me.Caption = Hour(Now)      'shows the hour number
Me.Caption = Minute(Now)   'shows the minute number
Me.Caption = Second(Now)  'guess what?

Guys,
Using the following code how do I seperate the Day,Month & Year into
seperate textboxes so that they can be entered by the user.
I.e 2 Day textboxes,2 Month textboxes & 2 Year textboxes.
Thanks

Code (thanks to emoreau)

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim dtm1 As Date
Dim dtm2 As Date
Dim lngDiff As Long
Dim lngDays As Long
Dim lngHours As Long
Dim lngMinutes As Long

dtm1 = "2000/03/08 13:40"
dtm2 = "2000/03/09 2:00"

'Returns number of minutes
lngDiff = DateDiff("n", dtm1, dtm2)

'Extract days
If lngDiff > (24 * 60) Then
lngDays = Int(lngDiff / (24 * 60))
lngDiff = lngDiff - (lngDays * 24 * 60)
End If

'Extract Hours
If lngDiff > 60 Then
lngHours = Int(lngDiff / 60)
lngDiff = lngDiff - (lngHours * 60)
End If

'Extract Minutes
lngMinutes = lngDiff

MsgBox "Difference between dates: " & _
lngDays & " days, " & _
lngHours & " hours and " & _
lngMinutes & " minutes."
End Sub

Thanks

You can use the CDate to build your date:

dtm1 = CDate(txtYear1 & "/" & txtMonth1 & "/" & txtDay1 & " " & txtHour1 & ":" & txtMinute1)
dtm2 = CDate(txtYear2 & "/" & txtMonth2 & "/" & txtDay2 & " " & txtHour2 & ":" & txtMinute2)
