    Ok, I am entering all of our companies contracts into an access database.
    Some of the contracts are autorenewals and the date needs to be automatically
    updated after the year has lapsed. Question 1: How do I create a check box
    for those which are autorenewals and make it change the dates once that
    passes?

    Also, I am trying to get this to automatically send out an e-mail to the
    signee of the contract when the expiration date is up, How would I go about
    doing this?

    I appriciate your help in advance, thank you.

    >>contracts are autorenewals and make it change the dates once that passes?
    Better than changing the date (Update query) would be a new record on
    renewal. Create a macro named Autoexec so that each time the database is
    opened it checks what needs to be done.
    Use an append query to create renew records. Have a flag field that
    indicates not to renew/renewed. A second query, update query, will set the
    flag after the new record is appended.

    >>I am trying to get this to automatically send out an e-mail to the signee of the contract when the expiration date is up

    The macro can also run select query and e-mail the signee.

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!
