I have an active X calendar control that I use to lookup data from a table. I click on a date and it returns data from table using a query into a subform. I have been asked if it would be possible to click on more than one day at a time on the calendar control to get data. Want to be able to click multiple days, say a week at a time and have it displayed in my subform.

Passky helped me out with the calendar control to start with. Maybe your still around?

Hello bneuman,

I'm afraid that's not possible to select multiple dates, because Calendar control's Value property is not an array so it can have only one value (date) at the time.

But you could do a query which have WHERE clause like this:

WHERE format([DateField],"wwyyyy") = Format(Forms![form1]![XCalendar],"wwyyyy")

ww = week
yyyy = year

It would show all the dates from the selected week.

Regards,
Paasky

I don't remember which question it was, but I know sometime in the past month someone had this question . . . and the answer was that someone has created a calendar control that lets you do this. I'd do a search to see if you can find the old question.

Otherwise, of course, paasky's idea could work, or having the user click the calendar control several times and storing the values in an array yourself. That's a little work, though. :o)

I created a popup form with a calendar control incorporated which allows you to select = data, < date, > date, <= date, >= date, or combinations of > date and <= date.  It has two text boxes which are used to store the dates - lower / upper.  Below the calendar are two click frames.  One for the = & > combinations and the other for the < combinations.  You select a date and click what type of date this is.  It goes into the appropriate box.  Select another date and so the same.  There is logic that looks at the date and swap them is they are in the wrong sequence.  Clicking done passes the date(s) back as a string.  The form works off the field to be used in the SQL.  The field to search is stored in the Tag.

It wouldn't be too hard to add a week, month, or year.  When you click that date type and the date, the appropriate week, month, or year would be returned.

Is that something like you are looking for?

bneuman, glad I could assist you.

I have also been very busy with my projects recent days and have a very little time to watch what's going on here in EE... :-(

JimMorgan's suggestion sounds interesting...

I'm not always hanging around EE so I might not see a question but if you make a comment to this one, I'll get the email notification.  I do check my email regularly.
