    If you just dragged a textbox onto the form its probably called TextBox1 not Text1

    No , the name is text1  ;).

    Still doesnt work. any other alternative, or maybe an example?

    using vb6.0

    You've inadvertantly posted this thread in the .Net forum so I gave you .Net syntax.  instead of DateInterval.Minute you need to use "m" or something like that.  Just do a Google search for DateAdd in VB6

    It's been a while since I have used VB6, but try this:

    text1.text= "Your dinner will be ready at about " & dateadd(n,45,now)
    ' n represents minutes
    ' 45 obviously means add 45 minutes
    ' now is the constant for the current system time
