Calender control dates.

Hi,

I have a form with a combo box that is populated with a range of dates from a row in excel.

        With .lsDates
            For i = 1 To rngDates.Cells.Count
            .AddItem Format(rngDates.Cells(i).Value, "dd mmmm")
            i = i + 5
            Next i
            .ListIndex = 0
        End With
    End With

This works fine but I was wondering....
Is it possible to use the inbuilt 'calender control 8.0' in excel VBA to do this, but make it so only the dates in my worksheet are available to choose from. Maybe make the other dates greyed out?

Thanks for any help

check the following code

Private Sub Calendar1_Click()
For i = 2 To 30 Step 2
    If Calendar1.Day = i Then
        If Calendar1.Month = 5 Or Calendar1.Month = 7 Or Calendar1.Month = 9 Then
            Calendar1.Day = 7
            Calendar1.Month = 8
        End If
    End If
Next

End Sub


it checks if the day is even and month is 5 , 7 or 9 then set the date of day 7 and month 8..

here u can replace the loop with ur loop...comparing te current date with the database values..

like

while not rs1.eof
 
  for i = 0 to lstdates.listcount -1
   if datepart("d",format(rs1!DateVal,"DD/MM/YYYY")) = lstdates.list(i) then
       'do something  since date found in the list controls
   else
    'continue with the loop
   end if
  next
  rs1.movenext
wend
