MS Access: Pop up a calendar to choose a date?

Is there a relatively easy way to pop up a calendar and pick a date?

In a fill-in form I have it so that the date will default to today.

It would be cooler to pop up a little calendar window (the MS Contact sample database does this but I don't see how) and pick a date and have scrolling months and years.

Maybe there's something out there somewhere available to pick up?

Yes, in access 2k with SP4 you have access to the "microsoft data & time picker control 6.0" control.

this gives a popup calendar where you can select the day and scroll through the months. if you click on the year you can scroll years

I have a similar function on some of my programs. I'm using Access 97, and I use the ActiveX calendar control. I've placed it on it's own small form, and placed a button next to the text box that is to contain my date. then on clicking the button, the form pops-up and stays there, until the user selects a date or clicks cancel.

This is a great forum - I've really gotten some excellent help from you guys who contribute to it.
