What is wrong with:  (the WHERE part of it must be wrong)

Me.txtSprayDate = Me.txtDatePlanted + Me.txtGR1 WHERE [PlantedID] = me.txtPlantedID

Here is what I have but it doesn't work:

Me.txtSprayDate = Me.txtDatePlanted + Me.txtGR1 WHERE [ReadyID] = me.txtReadyID

Note that we need a plus mark not AND since it needs to add a number of days to the txtDate Planted

Is this in a query, VBA code on a form or what? A little context would help.

What's wrong with it it's that the keyword WHERE is used inside a query or a SQL string and not in the context you're using it in. What exactly are you trying to do?

Like other says you can use WHERE only in a Query or SQL, not in middle of VBA

so you should change it to
Me.txtSprayDate = DLookup("DatePlanted + GR1","tbl","PlantedID=" & me.txtPlantedID)

depends what you need
