If you want the textbox to have today's date just do

TxtDate.Text = Now()

And if you want the calendar to show today then

Calendar1.Value = Now()

Neither of these worked

Private Sub Calendar1_Click()
'TxtDate.Text = Calendar1.Value
'Calendar1.Value = Now()
TxtDate.Text = Now()

I still need to change the date when I select it on the calendar.  These won't let me.  

I also need to have any data in this text box to clear after the add key is selected

Private Sub TxtA_Change()

End Sub

Can you attach your workbook and post a detailed explanation of what you are trying to do?

I'm sorry but the workbook is too big for me to open. Here are some common ways to make it smaller. Or perhaps you could copy it and cut the copy down to just the parts that are needed to demonstrate the problem.

It is much smaller now.
The Vlookup and the UPH calculation are no being carried down to the next ROW with a new entry
Thanks in advance

Your "explanation" document unpacked into some xml, etc files. Can you explain here what you expect to have happen?

Wait, if all you want to do is to have the calendar show today's date when the form opens then you had the Calendar1.Value = Now() line in the wrong place. Move it to the UserForm_Initialize() sub.

This is a timesheet entry and employee update doc to track productivity.

1.      I would like the cursor to start in the INITIALS box.  Currently, when the initials are entered it auto pops the FNAME, LNAME, STATUS and HDEPT.
a.      I would like the cursor to jump to the FUNCTION CODE box and using the tab to the A#, TIME, UNITS, ADD button.
b.      After pressing enter when the ADD button is active, can the A# box be cleared?
2.      All this data updates the Timesheet Tab
a.      When I ADD, I get an error
 Runtime error 424
the debugger highlights     .Cells(lastrow + 1, "G").Value = TxtUPH.Text


Private Sub ccmdAdd_Click()
   Dim lastrow As Long
   
   With Sheets("Timesheet")
     lastrow = .Range("A1048576").End(xlUp).Row
    'lastrow = Sheets("Timesheet").Range("A2").End(xlDown).Row
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "A").Value = ComboBox1.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "B").Value = TxtDate.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "C").Value = CB2FunctionCode.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "D").Value = TxtA.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "E").Value = TxtTime.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "F").Value = TxtUnits.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "G").Value = TxtUPH.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "H").Value = TxtFname.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "I").Value = TxtLName.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "J").Value = TxtHDept.Text
   
   End With
 
 End Sub
 
b.      When I enter a new line item through the TIME SHEET ENRTY it removes the functions that are in place.  I have a VLOOKUP function in the DESCRIPTION column to add the description by the code entered and in UNITSperHR.  It doesn’t update the rest of the information LNAME, FNAME and HDEPT.  See row 35 and 36 for example.
Thanks for your time
