Hello here is the function

Private Sub txtInvDue_GotFocus()
   Dim th As String, td As Date
   If (txtInvDue.Text = "__/__/____") Then
      'Reformat Invoice date to MM/DD/YYY in order to increment by 30 days for Due date
      th = txtInvDte
      'Mid$(txtInvDte.Text, 4, 2) + "/" + Mid$(txtInvDte.Text, 1, 2) + "/" + Mid$(txtInvDte.Text, 7, 4)
      td = CDate(th)
      td = td + 30
      txtInvDue.Text = Format(td, "DD/MM/YYYY")

It means that the text in variable 'th' cannot be converted to a date. I suggest that you display it in some way (debug.print?) so that you can check its validity.
