Hi:
I am trying to develop code for my Calendar program that will allow me to print the appointments of a specified date
(ex:30/01/03).
Presently my program will add appointements,identify duplicate
appointments and has a method that will remove appointment but I have
not bee able to get the program to print appointments for individual
dates as selected by the user.
Can someone please help me?
Thanks
