Excel Date Picker Tool

If you’d like a quick and easy way to add dates in a worksheet, you can use this handy date picker tool, from Jim Cone. It opens to the current date, and you can scroll through months and years, by using the scrollbars at the top of the date picker form.


Just select a cell, and click the insert button, to add the date. If you hold the Shift key, and click the Insert button, it will append the date to the cell’s contents.


Create Calendars on a Worksheet

In addition to inserting the date, Jim’s date picker will also add a calendar to the worksheet – either a single month, or a full year.


Download the Date Picker File

To see all the details, and to download the date picker file, please visit my Contextures website: Excel Date Picker

The file is in Excel 2003 format, and contains macros, so enable macros if you want to test the file. The VBA code is unlocked, so you’ll be able to poke around in the code, and see how it works.

Jim hasn’t tested the file in Excel 2013, but a quick test in that version worked fine for me.
