Many calendar templates are available for use in Excel. A template provides a basic calendar layout that you can easily adapt for your needs.

You can download calendar templates with useful and creative themes when you click File > New in Excel.

  1. Select Search for online templates, type calendar, and select the magnifying glass Start Searching button.

  2. Click on a template that you are interested in and then click Create.

  1. On the File menu, click New from Template.

  2. On the rightmost side, in the Search All Templates search box, type Calendar.

  3. Pick a calendar template you want and click Create.

    You can easily apply your own look to a calendar. Calendar templates are formatted by using themes that enable you to apply fonts, colors, and graphic formatting effects throughout the workbook with just a click. On the Page Layout tab, under Themes, select from dozens of built-in themes available in the Themes gallery or find options to change just the theme fonts or theme colors.

    Important: Formulas exist in all cells that display a date, as well as in those cells in the date rows that appear blank. These formulas enable the calendar to update automatically. If you manually change the data in those cells, the calendar will no longer be able to update automatically.
