I have a Training details form which has a control, Training_Date text box and then a combo box Frequency which has a number of set days.  This is calculated in the query and I would like to have the result displayed in the form control Due_Date once the choice from the combo box is chosen.
This will then allow the value to be recorded in the table allowing for reports and queries on training due.  
I have tried a number of methods without any luck as yet.

Cheers

You can do it in after update event for your combo box. Something like:
Me.[Due_Date] = Dateadd("d", [Frequency], Datevalue([Training_Date]))

Many thanks for the reply
I placed your code in the update event for cboDue_Date and it still didn't work, I then put the Control Source for txtDue_Date as =[qryTraining Query]![Due_Date].  I am now displaying #Name? in the text box.

This is the code in the form module.

'Code to display calculated field from Training_Query in form

Private Sub cboFrequency_AfterUpdate()

 Me.[txtDue_Date] = Dateadd("d", [cboFrequency], Datevalue([txtTraining_Date]))
 
End Sub

Hi als315
I have attached the database with some info though please excuse the errors as I am trying to fix them with another expert from this forum as we speak.

When you open the database if you close the error message and double click frmPPS_Training_Register the tabbed form will open and then click on the Training Details tab to see the Due Date text box.

Many thanks for your help.

Look at sample. txtDue_Date field should be bounded if you like to store it in table. Change cboFrequency and you will see changes
