You can enter up to 128 personal in a “Notes” sheet and associate them to a specified date. The sheet “Holidays” includes in this version the official United States holidays, either as a fixed date (for example the New Years’ Day) or as calculated dates (for example the Memorial Day, which is defined as the last Monday in May). Of course, you can add more specific holidays for your country or state. The holidays and notes are automatically displayed in the calendar views.

One sheet includes various settings for the calendar, for example options for selecting the current year, some display options or an option for choosing the calculation method for the week number. Finally, the sheet “Welcome” contains some information how to use the calendar. All sheets are password protected; however you can easily remove it as the used password is an empty string.
