How do I check for a blank date field? I think I am on the right track. If I enter a date, the code line - MsgBox "Expiration Date: " & Me.dtpExpDate, displays the date, but the date is left blank the check I do -
If dtpExpDate = "" Then
doesn't execute the line...
MsgBox "Expiration can not be Empty", vbExclamation

        MsgBox "Expiration Date: " & Me.dtpExpDate
        If dtpExpDate = "" Then
        'verify that Expiration Date is not empty
            MsgBox "Expiration can not be Empty", vbExclamation
            Me.dtpExpDate.SetFocus
            Exit Function
        End If

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

If memory serves, when you a have DateTimePicker with a checkbox like that and the checkbox isn't checked, the value is Null. You can test for that with IsNull(dtpExpDate.Value). Hope that helps.
