I have a date stored in a field called gDate.

 As the user creates a new record in the table I want to make this the default value of the date entry field called TTrack_Date_In.
I have the following logic in the Current event of the form:

if me.newrecord then'
    me.TTrack_Date_In.DefaultValue = gDate

This results is a very strange value (12/30/1899) in TTrack_Date_In.  I remember that defaultvalues always have to be characters but I'm not sure how to get the date in gDate to show up correctly as the default value in TTrack_Date_In.

Any one know the syntax?
