Sorry - txtCalDate is the name of a field in a form.  If the date value is greater than 30 days then I'll take it from there.

<If the date value is greater than 30 days > you need two dates to do a comparison?

assuming the second date is todays date


if datediff("d",Date(),me.txtCalDate) > 30 then



end if

or

if datediff("d",me.txtCalDate,Date()) > 30 then



end if
