What do you mean when you say "add a date picker to a text box"? Do you mean that you want the result of the selection in a date picker to appear in a textbox?

You can achieve what you want by following these steps:

1.    Go to the Visual Basic IDE
2.    Select or add your userform
3.    If the Toolbox does not appear then click 'View' in the menu bar and select 'Toolbox'
4.    Right-click on the Toolbox and select 'Additional Controls...'
5.    If 'Selected Items Only' is checked, un-check it.
6.    Scroll down to 'Microsoft Date and Time Picker' control and select it.
7.    The control will now be in the toolbox and you can then select it and draw the control on your userform
8.    Finally, add this code

Private Sub DTPicker1_Change()
TextBox1.Text = DTPicker1.Value
End Sub

Open in new window

I'm not sure which "option" you mean, so please explain. But here is a demo workbook that shows the results of the above steps.

I suggest you use the Change event instead.

Private Sub Calendar1_Change()
TxtDate.Text = Calendar1.Value
End Sub

Open in new window


But in any case I'm glad I was able to help.

In my profile you'll find links to some articles I've written that may interest you.
