Last Modified: 2014-01-18
I have two date fields on a form.  If I enter, for example 7/1/2013 in the start date field I want the end date field to be one year after the start date.

What is the after update code for the start date field?

What I mean is if I start with 7/1/2013 and want to end with 6/30/2014 I have to have:

    Me.txtEndDate = DateAdd("yyyy", 1, [txtStartDate]) - 1

It works!
