I have an ACCESS 2003 form with a calendar contorl, Calendar1.  When the user clicks on a date, I want that date toappear in a text box.  I tried using the On Updated event in the Calendar control, but that did not change the date in the text box.  So, how is this control used?

ssmith94015,

Is the code you tried a secret?
;-)
Why not post it so we can see what you may have done wrong...?
Is the Calendar on a separate popup form, or is it on the same form as the textbox?
...etc

This is typically done on the "AfterUpdate" event of the calendar control (not the "On updated" event)

This works fine for me...

No, the code is not a secret, I just thought it gave enough information.  Am going to try both sample suggestions later today.  Just tired...

But investigate the samples that capricron1 and I posted first, to see if they resolve your issue.

THey both worked, but wound up using Capricorn's.  So split a bit.
