Access 2003: Make a combo box value equal todays date

P: 19
I tried setting up a new combo box to have todays date as a user choice by setting its property to a value list. Then for the row source it set it to =Date(). Access will not show what the expression equals but only the expresion formula itself. What am I doing wrong here? Thanks in advance!

I figured out another way to get around this by entering todays date on an afterevent is called.

You should have also put
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. =Date()
as default value ..
This way you can have the chance of editing/changing

If you have a ComboBox that includes today's date as a value, then all you need do to select this value is set the value of the ComboBox to today's date :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.cboDates = Date()
Where you put this depends on what exactly you're after, but the Form_Open() event procedure works for most cases.
