I have a button on a form that opens a calender. But the date on the calender does not change. In other words, it does not display the current date, month and year. Below are my codes

Private Sub Cal_Click()
    Forms("frmReject").[Date Released].Value = Cal.Value
    Cal.Value = Date
    DoCmd.Close
End Sub

Private Sub Cal_Click()
    DoCmd.OpenForm "calender"
    Close
End Sub


Thanks for the help

Hi Bill

Yes I am using Microsoft Activex Control. When I added the property on the Onload event, I got error message, "Compiler error, can't find project or library"

thanks

Make sure that you have a reference set for MIcrosoft Calendar Control 9.0

While viewing the module code for your "calendar" form Select the "Tools' menu item, select "References', then scroll the list and select the checkbox next to "Microsoft Calendar Control 9.0'

You may have to register your calendar control.  
Locate mscal.ocx on your hardrive.  (Mine lives in:  C:\WINNT\system32)

Then, from a module, click <Tools><Active X Controls>.  Next, click register, and scroll to the location of mscal.ocx.

Also, use the code Bill posted.

HTH,

JK

Hallo there,



I use the following


Private Sub Form_Load()

     YourCalenderName = now()

End Sub

This will hightlight the current date as per your PC system time.

Cheers

I checked the Reference and the system does not have Microsoft Calendar control 9.0, only 8.0

Thanks

Checking 8.0 should do the trick.  

Calendar Control 8.0 is installed by Access 97 (Access Ver 8.0).

Calendar Control 9.0 is installed by Access 2000 (Access Ver 9.0)

Have you been able to pass the value of the control back to your original form (frmReject)?
