For custom calendars in Word, insert a table into a new document, and then manually add dates, holidays and so on.
On Timeanddate.com, choose a template, and then fill in data fields that specify calendar type, year, number of months, first day of the week, holidays and other observances. After customizing your settings, click the Create PDF button to download your calendar.
To use a template in Word, click the Office button, and choose the New option. Choose Calendar from the list of available templates, or use the Search bar to search Microsoft Office online. Click on the calendar template of your choice, and follow directions in the Setup Wizard. The template automatically fills in the dates for the months and years you specified.
To make a custom calendar in Word, create a table with seven columns and six rows in a new Word document. This sets up a simple calendar grid where you can add dates, holidays, and more. If the calendar is for a special event such as a vacation or wedding, it’s also easy to add custom decorations and colors.
