I have a commonly distributed scheduling workbook that i would like to add in a pop up calendar to a date field. I have no problems adding this with proper functionality to my machines, however as soon as it is sent to a customers, they run into errors due to missing reference libraries. How can i ensure that a control such as 'Microsoft Date & Time Picker' or 'Month View Control' work on every machine in which it is run on. Sending Customers specific libraries and explaining them how to install them is not really a viable solution, if there is a solution at all. (Workbook is xlsm, and Excel 2007 or above is assumed/ required)
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

The only way to be absolutely sure your file works on each Office installation is by NOT using that control to start with.
If you Google for "userform calendar" you should be able to find example workbooks which have implemented the date-time picker as a normal userform. Example:
VBA Express : Excel - Userform Calendar Control

Thanks a lot. At least i know its not going to work with the toolbox option. I downloaded the sample from your link and that will work just fine. Thanks so much.
