Hi,

Can someone tell me how I would check a text field of mine, which has an input mask of date, for null values. I usually do the following;

If Nz(Me(TextDateFrom), "") = vbNullString Then

But for some reason it is saying MS Office cant find the field "01/11/2007" (Which is the value in the field, not the field itself).

the (...) around the field name cause that value to be evaluted, hence you are seeing 01/11/2007  rather than the name for the field.  Your code should read:

If Nz(Me.TextDateFrom, "") = vbNullString Then

You could/should check for Null directly:

If IsNull(Me!TextDateFrom.Value) Then
