I have three fields on a form.

Field #1 is a combobox from which a user can select a year.  For example, "2013"

Fields #2 and #3 are fields which I want to populate on the afterupdate event of field #1.

If the user selected 2013 from field #1, I want field #2 to populate with "7/1/2013"  (It will always be July 1st).

and

If the user selected 2013 from field #1, I want field #3 to populate with "6/30/2014"  (one year after field #2).

How can this be done?

place the codes in the afterupdate event of the combo

me.field2=dateserial(me.field1,7,1)

me.field3=dateserial(me.field1+1,7,0)

The above answer is correct.  Also, what I typically see is if a business has years that follow certain logic, such as 7/1/XX to 6/30/XX + 1, then there should be a table that stores all of these values, such that any year logic can use the table without having to recalculate it every time.

Or in the case of this combo box, bring along for the combo box row list the two date columns, then in VBA the Combo Box's AfterUpdate event can just do a

Me.SomeTextBox = Me.MyComboBox.Column(x-1), where x is the ordinal position of the row, meaning if StartDate is the 5th row then a 4 would go here.
