Force AfterUpdate event

I use the ActiveX Calendar control on several of my forms.  I just noticed that when a calendar is used to insert a date into a field on the form, the After Update event is not triggered.

Is there a way I can force the event to happen with VB code?

Thanks for your help.

Try the On Change event instead ...

and use the .TEXT property of the text box

Private Sub yourTextBoxName_Change()

   ' some code
   ' example
   If Me.yourTextBoxName.TEXT = <somevalue> ' or whatever ...

End Sub

DatabaseMX, the OnChange didn't work either.  However, I found by using the AfterUpdate on Time entery(Immediatelyfollow date entry) I can use its event to do my testing.

I accepted you comments as the solution, since you did give me something to try.  Thanks.
