    More Controls in Access 2007 (Win XP Access 2007)

    More problems with Access 2007. Now I can't find the additional ActiveX controls that are available when you click More Controls on the Toolbox, such as the Calendar control?

    Access 2007 has a built-in calendar. From What's new in Microsoft Office Access 2007:
    <hr><big>Automatic calendar for date picking</big>

    Fields and controls that employ the Date/Time data type automatically gain a new feature: support for a built-in interactive calendar for choosing a date. The calendar button automatically appears to the right of the date. Want to know the date for this coming Friday? Click the button and the calendar automatically appears to let you find and choose the date. You can optionally turn off the calendar for a field or a control by using a property.<hr>
    The property referred to is 'Show Date Picker'.

    As far as I can tell, you should still be able to use ActiveX controls in Access 2007. Make sure that they are installed - the Calendar control has always been optional.

    Yes, I have used the new date control, and can understand why it would no longer be available; however, there are probably a hundred additional controls located at the end of the tool box, and I just don't know where to look in 2007. At my level of experience, I don't use many of them, but for compatability purposes, I would like to know where to find them.

    I opened a form from Nothwind in design view, design tab on the ribbon, and there are all of the old stand-bys, but no More Controls button.

    Found it! The Spanish translations are not the clearest.
