Description -
This sample db demonstrates an appointments planner featuring audiovisual alarm 
for events becoming due.    

The Planner opens with appointment grid pre-selected for today's date and the 
cursor moves to current time slot.

If any other date (not older than yesterday) is selected in the Date  Picker control, 
fresh appointment grid for that date is presented (if not already existing).

When put into standby mode, the utility goes into minimized state and keeps 
scanning the status of scheduled appointments at specified time intervals.

As & when an event becomes due, an audio alarm is sounded accompanied by a 
pop-up form displaying the current status of various appointments.

The time in advance of an event for sounding the alarm, as well as the frequency of 
scanning is amenable to customization by the user.

Audio alarm is governed by the *.wav file located in the same folder as that 
containing the sample db. If it is desired to use a different sound, simply replace this 
file by the one desired.

The zip file contains two versions (Access 2000 file format), developed as follows -
        (a) Access 2002 installed on Windows XP
        (b) Access 2000 installed on Windows 98
Caution - 
        (a) An activex control named 'Microsoft Date And Time Picker Control' has 
been used in this database. This control is required to be registered in the access 
installation on user's computer, before attempting to open & use the sample db.
        (b) For registration - file  mscomct2.ocx  should be available in System32 folder 
of windows operating system. Open any access database other than this db (even
