XLCalendar is a simple program that allows users to create custom calendars in Excel. Combining intuitive operation with professional results, this program is a great way to make calendars quickly and easily.
The program's interface is basic, just a gray box with a few buttons and drop-down menus. Users select the calendar template that they want to use and then modify it as needed. Users can select whether they want to abbreviate the names of the months and days, for example, or change the cell in which a particular characteristic is displayed. There are multiple templates, allowing users to create calendars that have all 12 months on one spreadsheet or workbook, with one calendar per sheet. A space for notes can be included to the side of each month. Users can optionally include holidays on their calendars and can even create custom holiday files to be used with the program. We liked that the calendars look good to begin with and that the program offers options for further customization, allowing users to create calendars that fit their specific needs. The built-in Help file could stand to be a little more detailed, but overall the program is quite intuitive and easy to figure out. It's definitely not fancy, but it is a quick and easy way to produce surprisingly nice-looking calendars.
XLCalendar is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users; we don't think we've seen an easier or more intuitive way to create custom calendars.
