When I first did this and hard-coded 12/31/2008 in the if staement, it worked fine.  But I need this to update for 12/31 and a new year.  So, how do I tell the variable that add the year from my form?  I need either the Year(maxDate) for 12/31 & FORMS!frmSalesPayroll.txtForecastYear.  I think it has something to do with the pounds but I am not sure as everything I tried still does not work.
Public Sub AppendCalendarDate()

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

Dim addDate As Date, maxDate As Date, i As Integer, strAppendDate As String, dteEOY As Date
 

maxDate = DMax("CalDate", "tblSalesDaily445_and_Calendar")

dteEOY = #12/31/Year(maxDate)#

If maxDate < dteEOY Then

    i = DatePart("d", maxDate) + 1

Debug.Print maxDate

Debug.Print i

Debug.Print dteEOY
 
 

For i = i To 31

strAppendDate = "INSERT INTO tblSalesDaily445_and_Calendar ( ForecastYear, CalDate, CalMonth ) " & _

    "SELECT DISTINCT Year([CalDate]) AS " & _

    "ForecastYear, #12/" & i & "/" & Forms!frmSalesPayroll.txtForecastYear & "# AS CalDate, " & _

    "MonthName(Month([CalDate]),True) AS CalMonth " & _

    "FROM tblSalesDaily445_and_Calendar "

    

DoCmd.RunSQL strAppendDate

Next i

End If

Exit_ErrorHandler:

Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:

    MsgBox Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description

    Resume Exit_ErrorHandler

    

End Sub

How about...
dteEOY = CDate("12/31/" & Year(maxDate))
