Access 2003-DTPicker

P: 41
Hi Everyone,
I am using Access 2003 to design a DB. I had a DTPicker data type to get the date from a user but I recently converted it to a text box. However now when I try to call the new date from the text box it throws an error. Do I need to specify the new date as a long type or can i still use the Date type. Thanks in advance.

Sorry Todd but I'm not following your question.
What do you mean when you say :
... when I try to call the new date from the text box...
I can't make any sense of that :(

But '... when I try to call the date entered from the text box...' makes no more sense than '... when I try to call the new date from the text box...' did.
Does it make any sense to you if you read it back to yourself?
I don't think this is just me being thick.

What's DTPicker? I've never heard of this.

I've only heard of it on here but, from what I can gather it's a Date/Time Picker - a sort of calendar control that lets you select a date.

The DTPicker is an ActiveX control letting you select a date from a list. i just went ahead and wrote a seperate program running off a command button to select and display a date. Thanks anyway.
