Calculating Lead time

I would like to learn how to calculate leadtime in VBA.  I have a txtbox that has a date.  Formatted as date.  I have a txtbox that has a number.  I have another box that is a calculation of the two.  Example

txtbx1
10/29/08

txtbx2
10

txtbx3
needs to equal 10 weeks in the future starting on 10/29/08.  

I have a work around adding another txtbox4.  which is calculated as =txtbx2*7.  Then
txtbx3 is calculated as =txtbx1*txtbx4.

There has to be another way.  This question is strictly for learning and not any emergency. It would be nice to learn a new trick

  Take a look at DateAdd() in the on-line help, which is used to add a date plus a period.  It can be used anywhere an expression is valid (ie. a control source), and the arguments passed can be references to other controls on your form (ie.  Forms![<myFormName>]![<myControlName>].
