Does anyone know how to create outlook like calendar and scheduling in Ms Access.adp?

I have been told that, it is possible to import .net into Ms Access.. And that .net has some built in functions that lets you create outlook like calendars and scheduling.. But, I can't find any reference to do that..  Any ideas?

If not, then are there any coms out there that will do it?

Here are a few possibilities:

This one is a demonstration of how to create "Outlook style" calendars within an Access form without
using any ActiveX controls.  It is a free download and includes all source code:

I'd recommend trying the free download first.  If it doesn't do exactly what you want, you can always
customize it.  If that's too much hassle, you can always purchase a set of controls like the first three
examples; however, you will need to learn some VBA to get them to work for you.
