On a form I have a date field... txtInvDate   After the user has entered a date in this field (short date format), I would like 4 other fields to automatically populate. They are:

(using for example 12/5/13 as the date entered in txtInvDate)

txtInvMonth (should populate with 12)
txtInvYear (should populate with 2013)
txtInvQuarter (should populate with 4 since December is in the 4th quarter)
txtFinancialyear (should populate with 2013)

What would the code be for the afterupdate event of txtInvDate ?
