Either highlight the specified dates on the calendar or circle them or somehow define dates defined from a table or query reference

what calendar are you using?
did you create your own calendar?

<highlight the specified dates> dates ? in the calendar controls you can only select a date.

Actually I found a 2008 yearly calendar on the web and am manually identifying the dates for training classes.  My boss requested this to make sure he didn't double book any class and also just to be able to get a quick view of the classes.  So my calendar is just a .tif pic that I have put colored squares around specific class dates and dropped on to a form in the database.  Just wanted to know if there was anyway possible to create this automatically instead of manually.

deer777,

Why not use Outlook for this?
It can do this, an much more without any programming or manual updating at all.
(Can be updated automatically, email notices, track availability, List attendees, check room availability,... ect)
