    I am creating a form from an existing table. I would like to add a field to
    the form that automatically generates the date. The date is showing up in
    the form but not in the table. I am using a simple expression =Date(). Could
    someone please help?

    Do you have the control in your form bound to a field in your table? Where
    are you putting the expression you mention?

    Orpen up the from in design view.
    Right click on the date field and bring up Properties.
    Go to the Data tab.
    What does it say under Control Source?
    If nothing, you do not have it linked to your table. You need to have a
    Date/Time field in the table AND it must be in the Control Source of the text
    box. If the form is based on a query, you may also need to add the date field
    in the query.

    I recommend putting the =Date() as the default value in the field within the
    table and not the form. You will still see the current date in the form for
    new records.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
