I have a problem where I have to create a calendar in ASP.net(VB.net) where the day(number) is posted
off to the corner of each block in the calendar, and in the center of each block is a number,
preferrably a font size no smaller than 28(48 or 72 would be fine), that is pulled from an SQL2005 table, the
number will be either positive or negative(-##).  Also if possible, the calendar day should change colors if
the number is negative (Attached is an example of what it looks like in Excel, which we are now using). I need this as soon as possible, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Calendar-ex.doc

You can customize the way that the ASP.NET Calendar renders, by handling the DayRender event, and customizing each cell.

Example:

Protected Sub Calendar13_DayRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs) Handles Calendar13.DayRender
 	 Dim onmouseoverStyle As String = "this.style.backgroundColor='#D4EDFF'"
	 Dim onmouseoutStyle As String = "this.style.backgroundColor='@BackColor'"
	 Dim rowBackColor As String = String.Empty
            
	 e.Cell.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", onmouseoverStyle)
	 e.Cell.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", onmouseoutStyle.Replace("@BackColor", rowBackColor))
    
     If Not e.Day.IsWeekend Then
                e.Cell.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", onmouseoverStyle)
                e.Cell.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", onmouseoutStyle.Replace("@BackColor", rowBackColor))
     End If
 End Sub

Solution was not complete, but it did help to point me in the right direction. For that alone, and for being the only one brave enough to even give it a go, I award all points to you.
