I ave an access form with two date textboxes and I want one textbox to display the current date if another textbox is NULL. I have made several attempts but can't get this to work. Here is what I think should work but doesn't:

In the textbox NextDueDate I put this in the expression box after Expression Is:

IIf(IsNull([LastDateCompleted]),Now(),[NextDueDate])
Also
IIf(IsEmpty([LastDateCompleted]),Now(),[NextDueDate])
