Using Microsoft Word to Create Calendars
You can use Microsoft Word and Calendar Creator to create good-looking calendars free. To create a calendar using Microsoft Word, open the program and then click the Office button. Choose New to begin the creation of a new document. Select the Calendars option to see the available calendars available to you.
You can browse calendars available by year, by academic year, by multiple years, or by "other calendars." The latter category includes a huge assortment of calendar templates including a monthly calendar builder, panning calendars, monthly calendars with a theme, and the calendar wizard. A single click on a calendar thumbnail gives you a larger preview of it in the panel on the right.
When you find the calendar you want, click the Download button at the bottom right of the New Document window. This example uses the Monthly and weekly planning calendar. The template will download and then open in Microsoft Word.
Some calendars in Microsoft Word are pre-filled with dates, but this particular calendar needs to be manually filled in by the user. This varies depending on the calendar template you choose. All you have to do is enter your information, format your calendar as desired and then print it out. Next, you will learn how to use Calendar Creator, an alternative option for creating calendars using Microsoft Excel. By learning how to use both Microsoft Word and Calendar Creator, you will have more choices available for each specific need.
