I sometimes get the Run time error 94 - invalid use of Null

Private Sub txtDOB_AfterUpdate()
  Me.txtDOB = CDate(Me.txtDOB))
End Sub
' *****

I changed the code to the one below the error disappear but I am not too sure if this was the right code.

 Me.txtDOB = CDate(Nz(Me.txtDOB))

You have to remember that while a date can be null, the function Cdate always has to work off a number.  
CDate(null) will always yield an error message.

1. if this is a bound control, MSAccess will not allow non-date data to be entered.
2. proper protective code example:
Private Sub txtDOB_AfterUpdate()
  If IsNull(Me.txtDOB) Then
  Else
    Me.txtDOB = CDate(Me.txtDOB))
  End If
End Sub
