Need a code for VBA to populate date combo boxes

Hi,
I am working in VBA custom programming inside of another software (NOT MS Office). I need to create a date field and am not wanting to use the calendar control since there is a limitation to admin work involved with installing and registering ocx files. Either I need something by which I can create the calendar myself or I create the combo box which will load the values for date/month and year. Are there any other suggestions

Regards,
Ganesh

there are really many options for that you could e.g use the Calendar active x.

You can bind a datasource to a combo box if you are in Access.

You can simply implement you own calendar class.

Or you just can look around for other calendar controls see. e.g:

The Steve Lebans example as reference by Friedrich is great I use it in virtually all the systems I build. There are no ocx registrations to worry about, it uses the windows API and it's simple to control.
Steve Lebans gives many examples of usage. http://www.lebans.com/monthcalendar.htm

Hi, While the examples provided are good, these are access forms. As I mentioned I am working in a product which allows for basic customization in VBA, so require something in pure VBA userforms.
well VBA is bound to some Windows Office package. So what office Package are you using?
VBA is not a standalone product. So please be more specific about what you are really looking for.

I am working on a product - iGrafx (www.iGrax.com). This product can be customized to add some new forms etc, so I am working within that domain. I have attached the screen shot of the extensions available

I disagree, the example uses Excel, so my answer was on the point. If you like the posted code well, so be it, but the given answer was technically correct.

I never mentioned that your answer is wrong. The difference is that your code uses Access Forms, while the excel example uses vanilla VBA forms which was my requirement in first place. Hope it clarifies. I am not able to copy an Access form into my application user form to replicate..
Well it uses VBA for Excel and that is what I wrote. There does not exist a VBA form itself it's always part of one office-package. And the code would work in Access the same way. However this VBA code is one of the really bad pieces of code around.....
