Hi All

I recently discovered that the date picker was removed from office 2010, I followed the widely publicized instructions to return this to Office (and it works well)

BUT... for the life of me I am unable to find any explanation as to why MS removed this?!

Does anyone know the reason?

Well... it certainly seems to be the case! But seriously why remove a date picker, how random!

How infuriating!!

It wasn't the DatePicker that was removed, but the Calendar control.  There is still a little DatePicker control for Access textboxes, though.  Here is a link to a Microsoft KB article on this topic:

MacroShadow was probably right... Helen's info was somewhat more useful ;-)
