    Default ACCESS: Default Value for a Table Feild

    I have a field that is a Date/Time. It is a required field so I want to put a default in it. I want to add an expression that will give me 90 days from the date the record was entered.

    I don't think it is =NOW()+90 because I think that includes time. Is it Date()+90?

    Why not just try it?

    I was away from my Access Program when I created the question. I had to leave for a Flight. Since then I did try it and it did not work.

    Date()+90 is ninety days from now, so it should work.
