Give this a try in the AfterUpdate event of your weeknumber field:


Me.txtFridayDate =  (Me.txtWeeknum  * 7 + DateSerial(Year(Date), 1, 1) - Weekday(DateSerial(Year(Date), 1, 1))) - 1

Open in new window


- txtWeekNum is the name of the textbox where the week number is entered
- txtFridayDate is the textbox where you want the results displayed

You may also want to provide handling for nulls, 0, negative and invalid entries... here are some ideas, but you can customize it as needed:


      ' if nothing is entered, just exit without doing anything
       if Trim(Me.txtWeeknum & "")  = ""  then exit sub
 
      if isNumeric( Me.txtWeeknum)  = false then
              msgBox "Please enter a valid weeknumber"
               exit sub
      end if

       if Me.txtWeekNumber <= 0 Or Me.txtWeekNumber > 53 then
             msgbox "WeekNumber must be between 1 and 53"
             exit sub
       end if
        

        Me.txtFridayDate =  (Me.txtWeeknum  * 7 + DateSerial(Year(Date), 1, 1) - Weekday(DateSerial(Year(Date), 1, 1))) - 1
