Grid Planner

Posted on 2011-04-24

I have had a look for some examples of a planning grid linked to a calendar control to show assets being booked out to incorporate into my project but cannot seem to find anything on the web. Basically I would like the grid to show when our minibus has been booked out on a weekly view. I remember having an example some time ago in Access 2000 but seem to have lost it. I'm currently working in access2002. I would appreciate some pointers or examples of how I can achieve this.

Thanks in advance

    Loath though I am to go against EE guidlines and risk getting a whippin' (I ain't really skerd ;-)...
    I don't know of another way to easily point you to potential examples other than by link to external site for which you'd need to be registered to perform actual downloads.
    I leave that up to you.

    The concept of filling a mock "grid" of controls is simple enough though.
    In the example page link in my profile, there's the "RecordsetBind Example" which fills in textboxes with data from a non-linear source.  That's the entire concept there really. But you'll want the headstart of an existing application I'd say.  
    I have nothing I can directly offer you that isn't proprietarily owned (i.e. was paid to do :-s).

    I guessed that it would be a case of creating a calendar using text boxes. Many thanks for the link too I forgot that I had already have a login for that site and found it very useful. You have saved me a lot of trial and error.

    Many, many thanks
