i am trying to read two numbers out of a textbox(date of birth) and compare those numbers with two other numbers(today's actual date) but for some reason it is only picking up the first digit.  It is not recognizing the second digit.  I have cut and pasted a copy of code.  Can you please help me correct my problem?

Option Explicit
Private Sub cmdCalculateAge_Click()
If txtDOB_month.Text = Month(Date) Then
If txtDOB_day.Text <= Day(Date) Then
    txtCalculatedAge.Text = Year(Date) - txtDOB_year
Else
    txtCalculatedAge.Text = (Year(Date) - txtDOB_year) - 1
End If
Else
If txtDOB_month.Text < Month(Date) Then
    txtCalculatedAge.Text = Year(Date) - txtDOB_year
Else
    txtCalculatedAge.Text = (Year(Date) - txtDOB_year) - 1
End If
End If
End Sub

Hi
Use Val function for textbox.text. For example Val(txtDOB_year).

Hi
This code works
Option Explicit
Private Sub Command1_Click()
If Val(Text2) = Month(Date) Then
If Val(Text3) <= Day(Date) Then
    Text4 = Year(Date) - Val(Text1)
Else
    Text4 = (Year(Date) - Val(Text1)) - 1
End If
Else
If Val(Text2) < Month(Date) Then
    Text4 = Year(Date) - Val(Text1)
Else
    Text4 = (Year(Date) - Val(Text1)) - 1
End If
End If
End Sub
Cheers
