I have three fields on a form.

Field #1 is a combobox from which a user can select a year.  For example, "2014"

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

If the user selected 2014 from field #1, I want field #2 to populate with "7/1/2013"  (It will always be July 1st).

and

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

How can this be done?  (This is similar to a question answered previously by an expert but the combobox selection is different)

Sure, the combo boxes afterUdate event would look like:

Private Sub cbo_Year_AfterUpdate

   me.field2 = DateSerial(Val(me.cbo_Year) - 1, 7, 1)
   me.field3 = DateSerial(val(me.cbo_Year), 6, 30)

End Sub

Getting error... wrong number of arguments.

Here is the code with real field names:

    Me.txtStartDate = DateSerial(Val(Me.cboSelectYear, -1, 7, 1))
    Me.txtEndDate = DateSerial(Val(Me.cboSelectYear, 6, 30))

(I had to add ) to end if each line)

You put the closing ) of the VAL ( ) function in the wrong place.  It should have gone immediately after the cboSelectYear combo box reference.  This ensures that the value in your combo is interpreted as a number.

    Me.txtStartDate = DateSerial(Val(Me.cboSelectYear) -1, 7, 1)
    Me.txtEndDate = DateSerial(Val(Me.cboSelectYear), 6, 30)
