Adding to open record on form, from unbound textbox

I have a DB that tracks work for employees, the employee logs in and that information is stored in a temp table/query. Them the employee goes to a form and works based on date range for the assignments.
So the problem that I am running in to is, I am trying to add the person and date of when the assignment is complete. So I tried adding VBA to OnClick for the yes/no for the completed field. I created two text boxes one is a d-lookup for the employee and the other is the text box for the date.
Please let me know if addition information is needed.

So the two items in Item1 contain the data you wish to use to fill the two items in Item2? And you want to do this when the user checks the Complete box?

If so, then you could do this in the AfterUpdate event of the Completed checkbox:

Me.CompletedBy = Me.QNumber
Me.CompletedDate = Me.QDate

Of course, I have no idea of the names of your Controls on that Form, so you'd have to change those to match the ones in your form. In the example I gave, the two items on the left side of the equal mark are the items in #2, and the two items on the right side of the equal marks are the items in #1.

Where are you adding the Date the Assignment is complete?

And how do you determine if it is Complete?

Remember that we cannot see your screen, so referring to things like "completed field" means nothing to us.

If your goal is to "stamp" records with the current user and time, then I generally leave the login form open but hidden, and refer back to that form to get the username. If you want to get the current date, just use Now() or Date()
