Access 2007 Calendar control

I was developing in Access 2007 for the first time today (I was using Access 2000 the last time I developed in Access) and found a nice thing for entering dates into a text box. If you format the text box as a date it automatically shows a calendar control so the user can select a date from the calendar removing data entry formatting errors. So much easier than using the Active X calendar control in previous versions of Access. I was so glad/surprised to see it I’ve felt the need to write a post about something released 4 years ago 🙂

    “If you format the text box as a date it automatically shows a calendar control so the user can select a date from the calendar removing data entry formatting errors”. It was useful for me to reach this forum. I was working on access for the first time and found difficult to work with the calendar control. Then I stumbled up here and all solved..Thanks again…
