Access Calendar Control
Replacement for Microsoft Access Calendar Control
This database template is a replacement for the Microsoft Access Calendar Control which was removed in Access 2010 and replaced with a simple date picker. If you want more control over how your users select dates, or want to design forms that look like a real calendar, then this template is for you.
You can use my Calendar as either a popup form or as an embedded subform. Either way you have complete control over picking of the date. I teach how to design forms and reports that look like monthly calendars (as well as storing and displaying appointment data) in my full Access Calendar Seminar, but if all you want is a quick form you can plug in to your database, then this template will do the trick.
If you'd like to download a sample copy of the database template, you can do so here. This is a non-editable version of the template which will let you see it work in action. Sample databases are available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Access.
Full Developer Database
Once you have purchased the full developer database template, come back to this page and click on the Download button below. This will give you access to the ZIP file containing the Template ACCDB file. The full version will run on 32-bit or 64-bit Access 2013 or higher (possibly 2007, but I haven't tested it). There is also an older database for Access 2007 users with the old Calendar Control, and a database for 2003 users in MDB format.
Full Video Seminar
If you would like to learn how this database was built, again, pick up a copy of my Access Calendar Seminar. It covers all of the basics. If you want to see how this database, specifically, was built, then let me know. if enough people are interested, I'll record it as a separate lesson.

Not a Finished Product
Please keep in mind that most of my template databases are not designed to be finished products that are ready to go in a working environment. My templates are meant as starting points for you to customize for yourself so you don't have to reinvent the wheel. This requires that you have a basic understanding of Microsoft Access development. To work on most of my databases you should have completed my Access Beginner series and the first couple levels of my Expert series at a minimum. Most of my databases require knowledge of SQL and VBA as well.
Customize For Your Needs
If you would like to discuss customizing this template for your needs, and integrating it into your current setup, please see my consulting page for details. While I no longer accept custom jobs that are specific to a single user, I may include your features in a future version of this template if they have mass appeal. If you are looking for custom enhancements made to this template just for you, visit my Developer Network.
Please note that technical support is NOT guaranteed for any of my courses, seminars, or templates. If you require help with modifying this template, you may post a question in the Forums, however an answer to your question is not guaranteed. If this template comes with an accompanying Seminar, then you should purchase that Seminar to see how the database was constructed. If not, then you should have taken the suggested courses. Most of my templates are designed on a Developer level and you should have a thorough understanding of SQL and VBA before attempting to modify them. If you have a problem with one of my databases, I will only support the unmodified database exactly as it's downloaded from my site. If you have modified it in any way, it may not be something I can help you with. You can post in the Forums, and I may be able to help you, but if the issue doesn't exist in my unmodified database, it's not something I can support.
