How to Find a Calendar in Word 2007

By Lily Medina

You can find calendars in two places in Microsoft Word 2007, depending on how you want to use the calendar. If you want to insert a one-month calendar into a larger Word document, you can use the built-in calendar templates found in the Tables function. You can also create a new document that is a calendar, using one of the many calendar templates provided by the Office.com community.

Insert Calendar into Document

Step 1

Open the Word document and click on the spot where you want to insert the calendar.

Step 2

Click the "Insert" tab on the Ribbon.

Step 3

Click the "Table" icon on the Ribbon; a menu will drop down.

Step 4

Hover the cursor over the drop-down menu's bottom option, "Quick Tables." The menu will expand.

Step 5

Click "Calendar 1," "Calendar 2," "Calendar 3" or "Calendar 4," depending on the style and format you prefer. Word will insert the calendar you select.

Step 6

Change the month and days by selecting the month or day by clicking and dragging, and then typing the new month or number. To add text to a day, click at the end of the day's number, then begin typing.

Create a Calendar

Step 1

Click the "Microsoft Office" button, then click "New" in the left column.

Step 2

Click the "Calendars" tab, in the left column of the New Document dialog box. Word will then show you multiple links, each leading to different types of calendar.

Step 3

Click the proper folder, depending on what type of calendar you wish to create -- for example, "2011 calendars," "Multiple-year calendars" or "Academic year calendars." After you click to open the link, Word will show you a myriad of calendar templates, each using a different month or set of months and a different visual style, design or format.

Step 4

Select the calendar template you prefer. Pay attention to the months included as well as the template's visual design; some templates only contain single specific months, so if you want a calendar for May, don't download a template for February. Other templates contain the 12 months of the year or other sets of months.

Step 5

Click "License Agreement for Community Templates Terms of Use," in the right column of the dialog box, to read those terms in your computer's default Internet browser.

Step 6

Click the "I accept" button in the right column of the dialog box in Word to accept the terms of use.

Step 7

Click the "Download" button in the lower right corner of the New Document dialog box. Word will begin downloading the template; you may have to wait a minute or so.

Step 8

Click on any day and then type to add text.
