    Does Access support Event Alarm similar to Outlook's Reminder?
    Say, when a reminder (field) sets to 07:00AM, Access will automatically pop a MsgBox conveying a reminder of the event.
    Thank you.

    There's no built-in functionality for this.

    You could create a form that remains open all the time (it can be hidden if you desire).
    Set the Timer Interval property of the form to a reasonable value, e.g. 60000 (milliseconds, corresponding to 1 minute), and write VBA code in the On Timer event to check the current time and display a message box at the appropriate time.
