Add a timer control to your form.  And enter the following code to your command button code, or your form load code if you wish.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim stDate As String

stDate = Format(Now, "short date")

If stDate = "2/22/2003" Then
Call MsgBox("Take out the garbage", vbInformation, "Today's Duties")
End If

End Sub

Good luck.
