DatePicker Control Problem

P: n/a
Two machines look to a shared folder to use a database that resides on a third
machine. Microsoft date picker version 6.0 controls are placed on a form to
allow users to establish search criteria by selecting a beginning date and an
ending date. The form operates correctly on the host and one of the remote
machines, but on the other remote machine the date picker controls trigger
MouseMove Event errors, and will not accept any input. The MCCOMCT2.OCX file
resides in the C:\Windows\System32 folder on each machine, and the file has
been registered on each machine by using the Access menu combination Tools |
ActiveX Controls | Register. What am I missing?

Don't use the controls. Use forms instead.

See the Calendar Tips page at my website
http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/calendars.htm

One alternative is MonthCalendar is a completely API generated Month Calendar derived
directly from the Common Control DLL. There are links to several downloadable
calendar forms at my website. As these are forms you can also do anything with them
you want.

You can also use the calendar form which comes in the Access <insert your version
here> Developers Handbook by Litwin/Getz/Gilbert, publisher Sybex
www.developershandbook.com. These books are well worth spending money. Every time I
open one I save the price of the book.
