How do I test for null condition of date datatype variables in MS-Access 2003

EE Experts,

I have the following 3 lines of code that give me an error message

     If Not (datShipDate Is Null) Then
                    !ShipDate = datShipDate
                End If

Open in new window

Thank you Anders Ebro. That worked for just fine. I am embarassed to ask such a simple question. I found an answer in my wife's Alison Balter book that looked good, but yours was more complete and specific to my situation. I am a bit behind on this project so getting a quick answer was most helpful to me. Thank you.

If its any comfort, switching back and forth between T-SQL and vba, I probably by accident (or because I am forgetfull) use the T-SQL syntax at least once a month, and then scratch my head until I remember my mistake.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
