Default Set form.field default value based on entry in another form

In a date field in an Invoice form, the user enters a value. Then they move to a Line Item form which also has a date field.

How can I get the date field in the LIneItem form to default to the entry in the Invoice.Date form-field?

The system is set so that the user makes entries in the Invoice form and then a button opens another form for the LineItem entries. Thus, when the LineItem form opens, the Invoice form will be open and a value will exist in the Date field which I want to be the default in the Date field of the LineItem form.

Pardon me, but how is this a SQL question???

There is no such thing as forms in SQL.

Are you really asking about Access, perchance?? If so, you should ask in the Access forum. Access is not just a database; it's also a form and reporting system, but in ways that have really almost nothing to do with SQL.
