Hi,

Here is my question, I'm new to databases and handling them.
I like to read out an date filed in a access database, and set in a Calendar monthview the date bold.
So if the date exists set it to bold in the monthview.

The access database has an table with: ID | Event | Date | Location | Description | Category

I do not know how to query a access database so if you could give an example it would be very pleased.

Kind Regards, Joleen

I'm sorry MYLim,

But you didn't read the question at all.

I can't help but say something here, but...

'I do not know how to query a access database' and this is in a VB newsgroup so I guess MYLim assumed you wanted to query a database in VB. You should probably be more specific if you want something else.

Do you mean set a date bold in the flyout calendar view on a date picker? AFAIK it can't be done unless you want to develop your own custom control.

No I Don't, it should be on a MonthView Control, Do you mean that I have to draw it on a form?

OK Thanks MyLim.

use this syntax to set a date bold

MonthView.DayBold(#12/20/2003#) = True



So, using some of Lims code...


Rs.Open "Select YourDateField from Table1", Cnn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly

Do Until Rs.eof

  if IsDate(Rs.fields(0).value) then
    MonthView.DayBold(CDate(rs.fields(0).value)) = True
  end if
 
  Rs.MoveNext
Loop


rs.close
set rs=  nothing



This is the basics, what has to be incorporated in here is:

1. The correct name of your MonthView control
2. The correct field and table names
3. Valid MinDate and MaxDate settings
4. A filter on the current month to speed things up, as only one month will can be viewed at a time

If you need any help sorting out those issues, let me know.

Keep in mind that the Bold settings are forgotten when you change the month.
