The calendar can be activated in two ways - automatically, or manually.

Activate the Calendar Automatically

Pop-up Calendar for Excel displays an in-cell icon button automatically when you click a cell which:

  • Has a date format. To set the format of a cell in Microsoft Excel, right click the cell and choose Format Cells. On the Number tab choose Date in the Category list, and then choose a proper date format in the Type list.
  • Has a date value. For example, if a cell is formatted as "General" but has a date-like value "September 1 2006", Pop-up Calendar for Excel will display the in-cell icon button when you click the cell.
  • Underneath a cell with a date value or format in it.
  • Underneath a cell that has some form of the word "date" in it

You can enable or disable the above options respectively in the Settings window.

Activate the Calendar Manually

If you want to enter a date value in a cell, but the in-cell icon button is not shown automatically when you click the cell, you can display the calendar manually by the following operations:

  • Click the Calendar! button on the Pop-up Calendar for Microsoft Excel toolbar (Excel 2000/XP/2003).

    Display the calendar manually by clicking the button on the Pop-up Calendar for Microsoft Excel toolbar

In Excel 2000/XP/2003, if the Pop-up Calendar for Microsoft Excel toolbar is not visible, click Excel menu View -> Toolbars -> Pop-up Calendar for Microsoft Excel to display it.
