State of the Art Replacement for Active X MS Calendar
Everything revolves around time and Microsoft Active X Calendar is(was?) the perfect tool to use in a lot of applications we've prepared over the years. This gem works seamlessly even in continuous forms while current datepickers associated with textboxes won't do and subforms won't do and equally seamlessly integrates with VBA code and queries and control sources SQL. It doesn't work in Access 64 bit so it's about time to come up with a state-of-the-art replacement but even simply enabling it for 64 bit would suffice.
Here's another non ActiveX replacement that works in both 32-bit and 64-bit http://www.mendipdatasystems.co.uk/better-date-picker/4594398118
I loved the old Active X calendar. I used 12 of them on several of my forms and reports. I have tried the replacements but they just do not do the trick.
The Microsoft date picker is one of the worst ever! Like most things done by Microsoft it is limited and short sighted.
Add to that ActiveX control should be avoided.
There are numerous form based date pickers that are 100% VBA and this don't suffer from bitness or versioning issues. Furthermore they can be automated unlike Microsoft's date picker.
So remove Microsoft's crap and install any number of much better replacements (Allen Browne, Lebans, UA time pieces, ...).
Deleting or deprecating almost always is undesirable.
