Hi again,

I asked a similar question before and realised that I still don't understand!

Here goes;

Sub Start_Click()
Update.DTTo.Value = Date - 1
Update.DTFrom.Value = Date - 1
Update.DTFrom.Day = 1
Update.Show

End Sub


Specifically, what does "UPDATE.SHOW" mean?

I believe it displays the form named "Update" to the user.

See the section "Displaying a Userform" at this link:
http://www.excel-spreadsheet.com/vba/userforms.htm

Displaying a Userform

Once the userform has been created, the next stage is to test to see how the user form will look. You can use the Run (F5 function key in design time mode) command when the active form is displayed.  But, writing code is ultimately how a user form will be used.

Decide where the code is to be stored (in a Module, Worksheet or Workbook).

Use the name of the form with the Show method command.

Example:
Sub DisplayMyUserform()
    MyUserForm.Show
End Sub


The user form is known, as ‘MyUserForm’ and the Show method will display the user form.

There is one optional argument called Modal which can be explicitly defined and has a value of 0  or 1 .
 
1 = a modal state which means that users have to complete the form and can not click anywhere else (in the background).
 
0 = a modeless state which allows users to click outside the form area.
 
The default is 1  if omitted.
 
MyUserForm.Show 0
MyUserForm.Show 1 or MyUserForm.Show

Ah ! got it now!

The confusion arose because the author of the sheet called the form "Update"...

I had assumed that the "Update" was some served word in VBA etc.
