I need to have a date entered in Column Q, I'd like this to be done with a simple drop down calendar. I cannot find the "Date Picker". I've tried in excel 2007 and 2010, read a little about adding the function but it does not succeed on every attempt. Seems like a very simple task is turning out to be difficult.

Thank you. The month/day/year must be in one cell. Was actually looking for a calendar to appear so they could choose directly from a calendar.

I've tried that, the problem is that the "Microsoft date and time picker control" is not an option. It's just not there, i've tried to install it with no luck!
