DTpicker control lost

Hi
I have developed an access 2000 db and used the date picker control. When I try to install the db on another machine using the same OS and same access version, the dtpicker control is blank. I have tried copying and registering the mscomct2.ocx file but the control won't show. The reference to the ocx file is registered and there is no problem with creating new dtpicker controls, but the existing one won't show.

Please help.

Go here - http://www.mvps.org/access/ and do a search for calanders, there are a few examples.  and while you're there, bookmark the site, it comes in handy for lots of stuff, its a great access resourse

Seems like a great access source, although I'm looking for a solution on the problem using the dtpicker control. Could you be more precisely on which example that will be a substitute for the dtpicker control?

ltoen,
Have you tried using the Microsoft Calendar Control (MSCAL.ocx) to get the DTPicker? Someone sent me a database that he used this in and it works fine.

God bless!

PS. If your version of office, does not have this installed already you can download it from here:

I created the dtpicker control with a new mscomct2.ocx and distributed that ocx to all other computers. Seemed like a versioning problem with the ocx file.

Actually ltoen,
The link I supplied above seems to be dead. You can get it here:

I had the exact same problem - so I created a form with a calendar control on it - and have used that ever since with zero problems.  It actually works better than the date picker control - plus no headaches like you are describing.
