Today's date is not highlighted in a pop-up calendar control in ACCESS 2003

I am placing a pop-up calender control on a access form . In the design mode I see today's date highlighted on the calendar.....BUT when I run the form, I have the calender hidden...when they click the date text box it appears but today's date is not highlighted..

How do I make today's date be highlighted when the calender control becomes visible.

Any help or insight would be much appreciated.

ActiveXCtln is the name of the calendar control on your form.  It will look like this unless you have changed it from the default - n is any number.
