Spreadsheets are quite versatile, and they can be used for everything from creating a household inventory for insurance purposes to building a comprehensive budget for a Fortune 500 company. Spreadsheets can also be used to create daily, weekly, monthly and yearly calendars for both home users and office workers. All you need to create a custom calendar is a spreadsheet program and a good calendar template.
To create your custom calendar using Microsoft Excel, just follow these simple steps:
- Log on to your computer and open your spreadsheet program. Create a new spreadsheet and save it to your hard drive or network share. Give the spreadsheet a descriptive name like “Monthly Calendar.”
- Download a calendar template from Microsoft if you are using Excel, or from the maker of your spreadsheet program. Review the list of calendar templates and choose the one that best matches your need
- Enter any additional information you wish into the calendar template. The days and dates will already be filled in, based on the calendar template you chose. Save the spreadsheet with your changes, or print it out for display.
