Does anybody know of a way to display data in a table on a form that looks like a calendar?

If the data in the table looks like:

Date                      Name
1/30/2015            John
1/20/2015            Bill
2/20/2015            Tony
2/15/2015            Steve
3/28/2015            Joe

Then the calendar (form) would look like:

1              2              3              4              5              6              7
8              9              10           11           12           13            14
15Stev    16           17           18           19            20Tony    21          
22           23           24           25           26            27             28

And then you could toggle between months.  To show the different events in the table.

It'd be nice if it could look like an Outlook calendar.

Did you just want to display the data onto a calendar or did you want it to have more interactions such as single-clicking or double-clicking on an empty date or on an event to edit it?  

If it's just for viewing then check out this thread and see if the zip file posted there by Peter would work for you:

If you wanted it more interactive then let me know.

Is a great start.  Would be nice if you could click on the event and have the form open for edit.  Or double-click in the white area on a date and have the form open for new record.
