MORE INFORMATION

Add Holidays to the Calendar

To add holidays to the Calendar, follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Preferences tab, click Calendar Options and then click Add Holidays.
  3. Click to select the appropriate country, and click OK.
If you have already added a country's holidays, you will see a check next to the country name. If you try to add the same country again, you receive the following error message:
Holidays for <country> are already installed.
Do you want to install them again?
If you click Yes, the holidays will install a second time and you will see duplicate holiday entries.

Remove Holidays from the Calendar
