I have a clock that I'm working with. I found the code on this website:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/add-clock-control-functionality-to-a-form-in-access-HP001121061.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA001054662

It tells you step by step what to do. However, there is one part of the code that I wasn't sure about and it is the following step:

Paste the following line of code into the subroutine in the Visual Basic Editor code window to call the user-defined function ClockLoadDate, which will update the clock controls. Replace ActualArrivalTime with the name of the control that is bound to the underlying date/time field.
ClockLoadDate Nz(ActualArrivalTime, "")


For "ActualArivalTime" Im not sure what underlying date/time field should be which text box do I replace "ActualArivalTime" with.
Below is the form.

ActualArrivalTime is the name of the textbox to the left of the h/m/s controls in the example.

My clock is still not working. I keep getting a error,"Can't find End Sub". I look at the bottom and there is  a End Sub.

No - you are looking at the bottom of the module.

Each sub procedure must have its own end sub.
The Form_Current sub does not have an End Sub.  

Private Sub Form_Current()
ClockLoadDate Nz(txHour, "")
'// This routine will change the time part + or - 1.
End Sub '  ADD THIS LINE HERE
Public Sub ClockChangeTime(oCtl As TextBox, fIncrement As Boolean)
