You really need to give it a shot yourself, and come back to us if you run into difficulties in the code. We're not a programming school, we're more oriented toward helping developers overcome specific problems in the programming.

(As for doing it when the computer starts up, just put a shortcut to your program in the Startup group.)

Store DOB in database and check with system date = DOB in database.

You realise of course, that would only work once per person? And only if you set it up before they are born? :D

Yes. Okay, how about month and date of DOB is equal to Month and date of system date?

I assume that was what you meant. I was just being especially nitpicky today. :)

You mean, System date is changeable?

Of-course. All our process date will get from system (if it is net work, then ‘Server’) only. And one more thing, interested to get your solution.

A reminder is not much defficult to erite.

Just use timer text boxes and fso for this purpose. I have also made my own reminder for me with sound features like siren etc. When the selected day comes let 4 then after computer turns on siren sound played.

If you want it i will send you with source only for you. But i dont know how to make an icon in right side of task bar beside soundcontrol i just want that thing other wise my reminder is good.

Hi,

As all the above say, Store DOB and Names in a Database,
Create a New Project, Add A Form, In Form Activate Event , Compare System Date (Day/Month) With the Stored Values, If Any Thing Matches, Pop-Up the BDay Wish. Else, End the Propgram. Compile and Place the Exe in "Start up".

So whenever the system starts, the Exe is Run...

The basic idea would be... let's say you have the array with dates called DOB()
and an array of strings with the names in the same order Names().

When the program initializes, it just has to do something like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim i As Long 'yeah, we've got a lot of friends
  2. For i = Lbound(dob) To Ubound(dob)
  3.      If Year(dob(i)) = Year(Date) And Month(dob(i)) = Month(date) Then Msgbox "Today is " & names(i) & " BD!!!"
  4. Next

Great!
Have you used database at back end?
I have also start making an but i have to pause it in the middle.
But now you have made it.
To make install package use any type of software like setupfactory, installshield etc by using these you can make you software setups quickly and conveniently. And you can also make shortcuts automatically after installation.
Use one of these softwares.
GOODLUCK
