An update macro for Microsoft Access

Hi, Experts

I have been trying to create a macro to update a colum for sometime now but i wont work :(

Here is what i want to do.

i have a field call Deliverystatus with two choice "Not delivered" and "delivered"
I have another field call Delivered date

I want to create a macro so that when someone change Deliverytstatus to "delivered"
The Delivered Date gets populate but the todays date.

Please some point me into right direction :D

Thanks in advance

Access is limited and do not have the trigger feature built-in, hence we can't execute a DML command by detecting update of a field.

>>I want to create a macro so that when someone change Deliverytstatus to "delivered"

we need to know how the end user update the DeliveryStatus? if it's via a Form, we need to execute an update sql statement after the change is completed.

you're welcome :)

Now() gives you date and time.  If you only want date, use
Date()

Open in new window

... and change the reference to Me.Delivered_Date (says Me.Delivery_Date)
any of the experts that have worked with access Web app in sharepoint?
