Its all in the title, i want to get 2 dates from user then view them in a data report text labels so we have idea what the report is displaying

I might be missunderstanding you but it looks like you are just trying to display a number from a text box into a label so you just do this

Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
        Label1.Text = TextBox1.Text
        Label2.Text = TextBox2.Text

    End Sub
