Calander in MS Access

Hi,

How do you create a calendar box in MS Access?  I have a date field and I would like the user to be able to select from a calendar drop box.

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What version of Access?

There is a built in Calendar in A2010.  Open a text box property sheet ... look to Date Picker.

If text box has a date, calendar icon will automatically appear to right to text box ... in normal view.
