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.

In the load event:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Me!ActiveXCtln = Date
End Sub

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.
