Form won't save record

I have form that has just an auto-populate date field on it.  The default is set as =Date()

Then on that form I have a sub-form, actually as a datasheet where records are entered.  

My problem is that the main form record isn't being saved to the main forms table unless I manually enter the date.

Why?

That's by design. You have to enter/change something in a form to make it "Dirty", then you can save it.
Until then, it is just a new record with default values or not.

Ok.  I just added a field that I ended up needing anyway.  Thanks.
