What Is Excel Date Picker

Pop-up Excel Calendar is an Excel add-in program that allows you to easily enter dates into Excel with a few mouse clicks.

For a quick example, click your mouse on a cell in which you must enter a date. An in-cell icon button appears. Click the icon button to display the calendar. Click the date you want to enter, and you are done!

Why you need it

One of the common problems many users encounter with Excel is incorrectly entering dates. People seem to get confused about entering dates. Should they enter dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy? Do they enter slashes, dashes, or dots? And what was the date of the third Thursday in September last year anyway?

When a date is not entered in the correct format, Excel will not recognize it as a valid date. This often means you cannot perform calculations with the 'so-called' dates. It also means any charts, Pivot tables, etc. based on the dates will not be valid.

What you really need is Pop-up Excel Calendar, or a date picker running right within Microsoft Excel!
