CNET Editors' review
There's no shortage of calendars for Windows if you use the Gregorian calendar, the standard Western date-keeping method. However, millions of people use different systems, such as the Hijri calendar, also known as the Islamic calendar. Hijri-Georgian Calendar and Converter is a small, free add-in for Microsoft Excel that converts dates between the Gregorian and Islamic calendars. It can also export Hijri calendar pages in as Excel spreadsheets or PDFs.
We extracted the add-in's installer, which placed Hijri-Georgian calendar as a tab on Excel's add-in ribbon. When we clicked its icon, Hijri-Georgian Calendar opened as a dialog with two tabs, Converter and Calendar. The Converter tab consists of two identical Hijri-to-Gregorian and Gregorian-to-Hijri conversion tools. We merely had to enter the appropriate dates in either tool's field, and the program automatically converted the dates and displayed them by day, month, and year. Clicking a button labeled Today's Date restored all fields to the current date. The Calendar tab offered a monthly calendar with color-coded dates for both the Gregorian and Hijri calendars. We could also enter a Hijri year and export that year's calendar in PDF or Excel files from a small embedded tool that also displayed the number of days in the selected year. A Help file explains what the add-in does, but this tool is essentially self-explanatory: It converts dates between two calendar systems. How hard can it be to use? But Hijri-Georgian Calendar's attractive use of color brings clarity to a layout that is basic by nature of the functionality.
Excel is the business world's spreadsheet. This free add-in expands its ability to take care of the world's business.
From Mohammed Fahmi:
HijriCalendar is a small Microsoft Excel add-in that provides you the facility to convert dates from Hijri to Gregorian and vice-versa. Hijri years from -100 to +3000 and Gregorian years from 525 to 3532 are available for date convertion. In addition, any full year Hijri calendar within available Hijri years can be exported in Excel or Pdf formats.
