How to Open Date Picker Automatically in Access


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to make sure your Date Picker is on, how to insert the current date and time in a field with a keyboard shortcut, how to open the Date Picker dialog with a keyboard shortcut, and then with VBA we'll learn how to open the Date Picker automatically when you tab to a text box, and also how to programmatically turn the Date Picker option on or off.

Abby from Madera, California (a Platinum Member) asks: Is there any way that I can have the date picker pop up automatically when a user tabs to or clicks on a field? It's not always evident to my users (some of whom seriously need training) that they can click on the date picker box.
