Hi... I would like to insert TWO calendars in a WORD document. I can do that but how do I change the year & month dates? I would like to have (for instance) a May 2010 and a separate June 2010 calendars. Muy inserts keep coming up as 2006! <br>
Thanks, Jack

Hi Jack:

Date calculation is not something Word is strong at :-)

This kind of thing is a job for Excel. I made a sample, here:
http://www.john.mcghie.name/Calendar.xlsx

I took a standard Word calendar template, carved the middle out of it, and
replaced it with a lump of Excel.

The entire calendar is handing off the Date entered in Cell A1. By default,
it will create a calendar for the current month, but you can insert any date
you line, provided that you insert it as an Excel Date. It will, of course,
display as a month :-)

Copy the cells out of the sample and paste them into your document :-)

Cheers

2. Merge Date Error with change in calendar year

I have a word 2003 merge document that pulls data from an excel 2003
sheet.  The specific field I am pulling from (AFRMonth) has the date
12/01/2005.  In word, I have the field formatted as follows:

{MERGEFIELD "AFRMonth" \@ "MMMM yyyy"}

so that it should show as "December 2005" in the document.  However,
the formatted field is showing as "December 2006" instead.  If I change
the system date to 2005, the field shows properly as "December 2005".
If I remove the formatting switches, the field shows "Dec-05"
regardless of the system date.

Any suggestions?
