I'd like to put code in a textbox's control source that returns the total number of Sundays in any given month. For instance, this month would return the #5. Thanks

This is a function that uses a brute force method:

Function GetSundays(dtDate As Date) As Long
Dim I As Long

For I = DateSerial(Year(dtDate), Month(dtDate), 1) To DateSerial(Year(dtDate), Month(dtDate) + 1, 0)
   If Weekday(I, vbSunday) = 1 Then GetSundays = GetSundays + 1
Next
End Function

Set the control source of your textbox to:
=GetSundays(Date())

to get the number of Sundays in the current month, or a date in any particular month to retrieve the number of Sundays in that month.
