Calendar control doesn't work on Access 2000

Hi, I have a calendar control, straight out of the Access 2003 (ActiveX). It works fine in an .mdb and .mde.

But it doesn't work with the .mde (created in Access 2000) ON Access 2000. The rest of the app runs fine on Access 2000.

But the calendar shows blanks for each date, and when you click on a (blank) date nothing happens. The calendar works fine on other systems.

Please advise.

Hi Bill,
Whatever the reason, my advice is to use a calendar control that is not an activeX, but  rather a native Access form like the one in this link:
                                http://allenbrowne.com/ser-51.html

The link explains the justification for not using an activeX control.

Now, having said that, the most likely reason why your activeX is not working, is that it just needs to be registered with Windows via Regsvr32.  The easiest way I found to do that is to open to windows, one for the directory that the activeX is in, and another window to do a windows search (Start button, search all files and folders on C:) for that file, and when the file icon appears, just drag your activeX to the Regsvr32 icon......you should get a message that it is registered.

PDB, looks excellent. I had  a problem on another machine and it turns out to be the same - it choked on the ActiveX control. Silly me - I thought since I found it in Access "More Controls", it was native Access :-(

So, the link you posted is better anway, since the arrows make it easier to scroll through months and years, as opposed to the drop-down boxes on the ActiveX control.

Hopefully, I'll have done by this weekend, but you hit the mark (again).

Thanks.
