I have a date field that needs to be updated.  I created a query with criteria that my field [StartDate] is = or < date() -365.  This returns only the records that are 1 year or older. I then used the query to make thae form.  What I'm trying to do is increase that [StartDate] by 1 year on the form.  I am using a macro set the value, and the value I'm using is:  DateAdd("yyyy",1,[StartDate]), but I get the 1230/1899 date.  What am I doing wrong?

"10/22/2007" is the date I am testing.  I've changed my query criteria to DateAdd, thinking it was a format issue, but I get the same result.  I should be getting "10/22/2008", at least that's what I want to get.

Well, nevermind.  I copied my setvalue formlua from the macro that wasn't working into a new macro (copy and paste) and it now works???  I have no idea why it didn't work in the first macro, it was the only item in the macro.
