by Erika DeanUpdated September 28, 2017

If you have Microsoft Excel, there are many different visuals you can add to your spreadsheets. You can insert charts, graphs or objects. If you would like to insert a calendar in Excel it is easy to do so, but first you must download a calendar template. After you download and save the calendar template you can then insert it into a spreadsheet as often as you want.

Download a calendar template from Microsoft Office Online. Search through the available templates and, after you find one you like, click the calendar link and select "Download."

Click "Accept" to agree to the service agreement and click "Save" to save the template to your computer.

Open the Excel workbook that you want to insert a calendar into. Click the "Insert" button at the top of the page and select "Object" from the menu that drops down.

Select "Create from file" in the Object box that opens and click "Browse" to search for the calendar template. When you find it, select the template and click "Insert." The calendar will then appear in your spreadsheet.


You can change the size of the calendar by clicking one of the four corners and dragging the corner in or out.
