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))
