(It isn't with all versions of Excel 2013, but if you have some of the higher-priced versions that include Access, it may be there.) If it is not on your system, you can try installing the correct control, but the process is not for the timid or faint of heart.And, besides, Bruce said he wanted something that allowed dates to be "easily selected," a definition which seems at odds with going through the convoluted steps to install the correct control.If you manage time tables, schedules, to-do-lists, etc. Calendar app does exactly that: Calendar is a web-based application.in Excel – you know that entering dates in cells can take unjustified amount of time. It means you can insert the app to Excel sheet – and share the file with colleagues or other users.
Backwards compatibility between versions may be questionable, as well. Only Microsoft knows, and they are not saying.) Even so, here's how you can insert the built-in calendar control, in this case in an Excel 2010 worksheet: Figure 1. At this point the Date Picker control should be active in your workbook.
(It happened on two different machines using both Excel 2007 and Excel 2010.) I had to hop back into Design Mode (at which point the control in upper-left corner of the worksheet disappeared), click the control I drew to select it, and then stretch it to be very large.
When I turned off Design Mode, the spurious copy of the control at the upper-left of the worksheet was gone and I could use the version I drew just fine.
But check out our desktop Popup Calendar add-in (requires installation).
It is a drop down date picker with wider functionality.
