Add A Calendar Tool To Word

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. Is there some way to add a calendar to a Word document? It sure would be convenient.

A. There is a tool that does just that. While it lacks the full flexibility of a dynamic calendar tool like the one in Outlook, it’s a handy add-on to Word. To access it, place your insertion point where you want to locate the calendar and click on Insert , Object and select the Create New tab and Calendar Control 11.0 , as shown in the following screenshot:

Click on OK and presto! A calendar of the current month appears alongside a box with multiple buttons (see screenshot below).

Click on the icon in the upper left corner (a ruler and a triangle) to change the date in that month. Or click on the inverted arrows to change the month and year. When you’ve settled on the calendar image, click the icon again.
