Creating an Outlook style calendar in vb.net

Hello -

I am new to the calendar control in VB.NET and need some help.  I regularly use the calendar in MS outlook for things like basic scheduling, etc.  I want to eliminate the Outlook calendar and begin using a VB.Net app.  I have exported all of my calendar information from outlook into an MS Access table.  I would like to create a calendar in a VB.NET windows application that looks and acts similar to the Outlook one and accesses its values from the Access database.

Is there any way to do this?  I have played around with the MonthCalendar feature as well as a DataGrid, but so far haven't been able to come across anything substantive.  I have looked on the web for several days now off and on, but have not seen any really clearcut solutions to this.

Please give me a clear and concise solution to this problem.  I do not want any links to other articles.  I will award the full points to the first person who can answer this question while staying in these two guidelines.

Thanks a lot!  I really appreciate it!

I don't know of any controls right now, but this should be asked under the VB.NET Channel.  It's in Programming / Languages / .Net / VB.NET.  

In regards to just getting a control though, this is one that should work quite nicely...

You will have to adapt the source code to work with VB.Net though

Hmm, that sounds a bit odd.  I found a control once I started typing.  :o)
