    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
