Microsoft Date And Time Picker Control 2016 LINK


In many cases, you want people to enter a valid date, and no other type of information, when they're putting data into a cell in Microsoft Excel. For example, you might be asking people to record days when they worked or when they met with a particular customer. To ensure that a date column is used correctly, you can effectively insert a calendar in Excel, using an Excel date picker. You can either do this through features built into Excel or using a third party plugin.

In many versions of Excel, you can use a Microsoft date picker control to create an Excel date drop-down in a cell. Unfortunately, this won't work in 64-bit versions of the popular spreadsheet program.

Then, click the "Developer" tab in the ribbon menu. Under "Controls," click "Insert" and then click "More Controls" under "ActiveX Controls." Select "Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control 6.0 (SP6)" in the menu and click "OK." Then, click the cell where you want to add the date picker. Click the "Design" tab in the ribbon menu and click "Properties" to customize various options of the pop-up date picker and the cell, including its size and color.

Then, once you're done placing and customizing the date picker, click the "Design" tab in the ribbon menu and uncheck "Design Mode." When someone clicks the cell from then, a date picker will pop up, ensuring data is inserted in correct date format.

If you're using 64-bit versions of Excel, using Excel Online or you aren't satisfied with the Microsoft date picker for some reason, you can always use a third-party date picker plugin. You can find them in the Microsoft AppSource business app marketplace. Search for one that has the features you need and use AppSource to install it in your spreadsheet.

Now, if you want to set multiple columns with a date picker, you have to make a simple change. Remember, before you set multiple columns with date pickers, you have to insert another date pickers again.
