I need to execute code at the exact point a date is selected in a text box using the date picker. After Update only seems to fire after the cursor exits the text box, not when a date is selected.

Try the OnChange event instead of AfterUpdate  event

And also ... refer to the .TEXT property of the text box - Example:

Private Sub txtYourDateBox_Change()

dim x
x = txtYourDateBox.Text


End Sub

I thought that would work also but I tried the following and it does not change the text box named TD1 upon changing a date selected:

Private Sub txtStartDate_Change()
 
    Me.TD1 = txtStartDate


End Sub

I think the asker is close to winding up in the weeds.
The DatePicker is a fussy thing.
Even with OnChange you can be in the weeds with conditional formatting

And the OnChange is problematic if some user starts typing in the box INSTEAD of using the DatePicker

@pabrann
You'll be a lot better off trying to get away from the operational requirement of "the exact point a date is selected in a text box" and moving to a "after a button right beside the textbox changed by the DatePicker is clicked."  Your present operational requirement is supremely difficult to execute flawlessly in all cases.

I'm just saying.  Have a look at the link

Excellent suggestions. My application is running and my client is very happy with me. I did not take credit and told them where I got the solution.

THANK YOU!!
