More information:
This is a agenda with a adressbook and a calendar with alert function. You can create as many Adrdess book and calendar databases as you need; e.g., one for private use and one for work, or for each user of the computer.

The Address book lets you store all the common contact info and you can search it in several ways.

The calendar stores a short description of the event and a full description, on what time/date/dates the event is to occur. And you can choose to be alerted of the event by a sound you choose; e.g., your favorite mp3 song.

I have cheated a bit with the alert, it uses default player. I have not been able to figure out how to code with API to be able to play mp3 coded with VBR Variable Bit Rate that are so common today. If someone know please post an example.

All the functions are available from the systray.

The project is made with VB 6.0 SP5 and MDAC 2.5
