I have an ADP database that when entering a time with Short Time format as a textbox allows 00:70 and then freezes my system.  How can I trap this somehow before it locks up the system.  Maybe in the validation rule or something.

You could have an on change event that does a right for two characters and check to seee if they are less than 60.

example;

Private Sub Text0_Change()
Dim val As String, valMin As Double
val = Right(Me.Text0, 2)
valMin = CDbl(val)
If valMin > 60 Then
Me.Text0 = "00.00"
MsgBox "Problem with the minutes"
End If
End Sub
