Auto populate date field with current date IF anything on the form is revised.

I have a form with two date fields.  One is DateCreated  (txtDateCreated), which is a manual entry field.  The other is DateRevised (txtDateRevised).  If the user makes a change in the form OR sub-forms, I want DateRevised to populate with the current date.  How can I do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What about using the Before Update event to set the DateRevised value

Me.DateRevised = Now()

And to update DateRevised if anything on the subform(s) is changed, use

Parent.txtDateRevised = Now()

in the BeforeUpdate event of the subform.
