For over a decade I've missed two things in Excel. (Okay, I've really missed more than two, but this post is about the two that are on my mind at this moment.) One, a ruler like in Word and PowerPoint. And two, a Make Calendar button that lets you select a list of events, dates in the one column, text in the other column, and when you click the magic button it displays the list in a calendar layout. I see they added the ruler in 2007. Yipee! I'm still looking the magic Make Calendar button??? (I'm not looking for a blank calendar... I've seen the templates.) I want to turn my list into a calendar.

What are your favorite ways to calendarize Excel data?

Re the Calendar, my suggestion would be to use Outlook.

Outlook has built in calendar functionality and, while I've not done it myself, I know it's possible to import an Excel list into an Outlook calendar.

I am looking for the exact same thing - any luck? I imported data from an Excel file into an Outlook Calendar and it worked, but there's not a lot of functionality associated with it. Need a solution bad!!!:confused:
