Full Version: Default Today's Date?
UtterAccess Forums > Microsoft® Access > Access Forms
I am sure this is a fairly easy question for most of you, but I have searched through the posts here on UA and I cannot seem to get a clear answer.
I have a data entry form that contains a date field for inputting the date the entry was made. I have a pop-up calendar which is activated on the double click event and the date can be selected from there. However, about 90% of the time the entry date will be today's date.
Is there anyway that I can have today's date automatically stamp itself into this control when starting a new record entry?

=Now() is todays date with the current system time
Date() is today's date
and set those under Default value either on table design or on the form
Thanks! That worked fine.
knew someone would have the answer.
