Hi Richard Still working on my calendar to make it more fabulous.  Hope you can help cause I think this would be cool to add to your seminar or tech help video. So remember when you helped me with picking the nth day of the week and the nth week of the month to calculate a date?  That works and is super cool.  But.... Is there a way to have that populate EVERY MONTH once selected? I can think of other use cases for this where someone wants a standing appointment.  Like a Landscaping business where the customer wants the 1st Tuesday of every month, or Salons, or Barber shops, nail salons, House cleaning, etc.  I'm so excited to see if/how  this can be done.

Hi Richard. LOVED the Calendar Seminar. It really helped with a work project but I want to expand on it. One of the columns in the appt. list box is called "Type". The type effects scheduling capacity for that day so I'd like to show each type's count for the day in a textbox as stop light colors.  I got the color part working, (yay)! The SELECT COUNT statement works in SQL query view but not the text box row source.  I tried using DCOUNT in the default value field instead.  Not sure what I'm doing wrong or maybe it can't be done?  I have screenshots if needed

Type is a reserved word. Either change the field name or you have to remember to put brackets around it everywhere. [Type]

Richard,

I completed your Calendar Seminar, and I was showing it off to a friend who asked if there was a way that you could see at a glance that an appointment/task was completed without having to click on it and open the information. What do you think? Read More...

Yeah, I'm sure you could easily add that as another column. I'm actually going to be working on an updated version of that seminar that's going to include different color-coordinated events and will look much cooler and focus on more of the scheduling aspects. The goal of that older seminar was to focus on making the monthly-formatted form and report. It's on the list for this summer. Stay tuned.

In the Calendar Seminar your reference the calendar control that no longer exist in access 2013. I was wondering if there was a work around in place for Lesson 7 that would handle the grey out days from different months. Thanks

How ca we update the calendar form when we double click a record in one of the ListBox and make a change to that selected record.

Have you finished the Seminar yet? I'm sure that's covered.

Hi Richard,
I have finished the seminar, including the 2 addendum. I can make a change by double cliking an item in a list box in the Calendar Form but when I close the editing form, it does not update the Calendar form unless I close it and reopen it. As far as the completed seminar, I have built the calendar in my application and everything works very well.

Backcolor Listbox Upload Images   Link

How can I change the BackColor of the list box in Access 2016 since there is no calendar control available and the date is only entered in an unbound text box. Up to this all the code to create the calenderForm works as expected.
Richard Rost

Changing the Backcolor property of a Listbox should be exactly as I show it in class for EVERY version of Access.

ListboxName.Backcolor = VALUE

I like using the RGB function now instead of the codes. You can specify how much Red, Green, and Blue you want, so:

ListboxName.Backcolor = RGB(0,0,0) ' black
ListboxName.Backcolor = RGB(100,100,100) ' gray
ListboxName.Backcolor = RGB(255,255,255) ' white
ListboxName.Backcolor = RGB(255,0,0) ' red


And so on.

I think we are not talking about the same thing. The back color property of the list box is not the problem. In the calendar form, the days that are not part of the actual month are grayed out using code that refers to the current month of the Calendar Control. Since there is no calendar control available in Access 2016, the code can not get a Month value and gray out the days that are not part of the current month. My apologies if my first question was not very clear.

It always comes down to spelling. What's the SQL statement?

As I couldn't get it to work, I used your Embedded Calendar and changed all the commands in the list boxes, it was completely messed up and I couldn't get it to work no how so I have deleted the calendar completely from my Database.

Are there any instructions how to put your Embedded Calendar into the Monthly Calendar Form?

Stay Safe.

Sounds like you're calling a function that doesn't exist. Spelling is usually the problem. Without seeing all of your code, it's impossible for me to say.
