I need mscomctl2.dtpicker.2 in my choices of ActiveX controls. How do I get
it in there and from where? I have MS Access 2003.

Billy,

What you are refering to is the "Microsoft Date and Time Picker control"
which is part of the Microsoft Common Controls 2 Object Library also known
as "Microsoft Common Controls 2 ActiveX Control DLL." This is included in
all development suites from Microsoft (Like Visual Studio, FoxPro, .Net,
SDKs, etc).

To use this control depends whether or not you have this file:
%system folder%\MSCOMCT2.OCX

The latest version is 6.01.9782 dated February 23, 2004, by Microsoft.

Try dowloading and applying the Common Controls DLL (Platform SDK
Redistributable) at:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f94d31a-d1e0-4658-a566-93af0d8d4a1e&DisplayLang=en

ActiveX controls are nice, but using them forces you to distribute them with
your application or Access project.

Randy,

Does that mean that if I create a form in an Access application that
uses the Date Picker that I can't just distribute the MDB file? I have
to also distribute the Common Controls DLL? I was hoping that the Date
Picker would be standard if people had MS Office or something.
