Microsoft Access Data base date reminder?

  bigwheels33 18:02 13 Jan 2008

Hi, i am new to this forum. Can anyone tell me if i can have a date reminder system for my database in Access? Basically its a licence database and each year a form has to be isgned by each licence holder. is there a way the program can remind me for each name when the form needs to be resigned each year on a particular date?

many thanks

There doesn't seem to be that facility in Access.
Just as easy to use Outlook I would think.

Yes, it can be done:

It depends how you want to be reminded. As fdcusa says, if you are regularly using the application you might have a reminder screen. If not you'll need some kind of scheduled task that queries the database and emails you. Easier just to put an entry in your Outlook schedule to check the database once a month/week or whenever.
