Unanswered: On New Record Add Value to Control
Okay, I have 2 bound fields. One called GirlID and one called Last Contacted. I want the date to be entered into this field (Last Contacted) when the user enters a new record. Should the code be On Current or on exit the GirlID control or what ? The control Last Contacted is a date field with m/d/yy as it's format and 99/99/00;0;_ as a input mask.
What do you suggest ?

If you're saying that you want Last Contacted to be populated with the current date whenever a New Record is created, in Form Design View
- Right-Click on the Control named Last Contacted
- Click on Properties
- Click on the Data Tab
- In the Default Value Property enter =Date()
That's all. Remove the Input Mask you have in place. They're frequently problematic, and since you're populating the Control with the Default Value Property, there is no need for it.
Linq ;0)>Hope this helps!
The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
