Calendar Control in Visual Basic

Hello all, I am writing a program in visual basic 6 which is to be an appointment booking system for a salon. I want to use Calendar Control so the user can click on a date and all appointments for that date will be displayed in text boxes to the side of the calendar and then a button by each of these texts boxes will bring up a detailed description of the appointment. I have already created the databases and the layout but am finding it hard to find any  information on Calendar Control. Any help would be much appreciated...

Not sure I follow that...
If you've saved appointments to your database - to retrieve them - you would initiate a database query using the appointment date (datepicker.value) as your parameter...
How are you saving to the database now?
