    Sorry I am very new to Access programming so maybe a simple question. I
    want to use a DateTime control on my Access form. How would I do this? do
    I need to insert an ActiveX control? Can I just use the Windows date/time
    control? How to add to my form?

    How do you expect to use it?

    If you look at Outlook (I have Outlook 97) and click on Start Time you get a
    month view type display. I would like to emulate something like that.

    Although it would be quite a bit of work can you insert ActiveX controls on
    an Access form? I could create a control and use that? Or is there an
    easier way.

    I found a datepicker on an Access forum - which is coded as a Form. But it
    is a bit crude.
