Enabling & Disabling Child windows (1 Viewer)

I have a table that involves a tick box with an associated date field. I want to be able to enable the date field when the tick box field is set to TRUE. Also, when the date field is enabled I need to place the system date plus 30 days into it as a default value.

Also, if it is possible, can the tick box be set to FALSE when the system date equals the date in the date field? (ie the tick box stays TRUE until the date specified)

Try this,

1. On the AfterUpdate Event of the Tick Box add this code.

Private Sub TickBox_AfterUpdate()
Select Case Me.TickBox
Case True
Me.DateField= DateAdd("d",30,Date)
Case False
Me.DateField = Empty
End Select
End Sub

2. Add this code to the Form_Current Event of the Form.

Private Sub Form_Current()
If Me.DateField=Date then Me.TickBox=False
End Sub

Note: For the DateAdd Function here is a list of the variables possible.

yyyy Year
q Quarter
m Month
y Day of year
d Day
w Weekday
ww Week
h Hour
n Minute
s Second
