Use a Popup Calendar In Microsoft Word.


I believe that someone once showed me how to pull up a calendar in Word, but I just can’t remember how or find it anywhere in the menu. Was it my imagination?

Let’s start with Word 2007 and 2010. The first thing to do is make sure you have the Developer tab displayed on the ribbon. You only have to do this once. If you don’t see it there, go to the Office Button in Word 2007 and clickWord Options. Choose the Popular tab and select Show Developer Tab in the Ribbon.

 

In Word 2010, go to the File tab and click on Options. Go to the Customize Ribbon tab. In the Customize the Ribbon list under Main Tabs, select the Developer check box.

Once you have the Developer tab visible, the rest is easy. Whenever you need to insert a date and you need to look at a calendar, just place your cursor in the spot where you want it, go to the Developer tab and click theDate Picker Content Control button in the Controls group. It looks like a little blue and red calendar.

A control will appear on your document. Click the drop-down arrow on the end and a calendar will pop up. You can scroll backward and forward through the months and years, and then simply click on the date you want to enter.

 

In addition, if you want to change properties of the calendar or the way the date is displayed, simply click on the Date Picker Content Control button and then click onProperties to make all of your desired changes.

Nice way to add Date and Time in your document.!!
