I want to create a date picker or a drop-down calendar. I tried to create it by installing an ActiveX control, but it keeps showing me this message: 

"The selected file does not contain any self- registration ActiveX controls."

 

How to solve this issue? And is there another way to create a drop-down calendar?

Hi,

I think below site will be helpful.

 

Register the calendar control in your system

regsvr32.exe XXXXX.ocx

Hi Kinuasa and thank you. But unfortunately, I followed the instructions to add it, and it succeeded. I restarted Excel and still the Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control does not appear under the more controls option. How can I resolve that?
