MS Publisher 2007 - calendar options missing

Post by aaronr »

Good morning all. I hope someone can help me. I have been using MS Publisher 98 for awhile to create my monthly newsletter. I recently upgraded my pc and also got an MS Office upgrade to 2007. The issue I am having is that I can no longer edit the calendar. Normally, when I click on the calendar, the "wand" appears and I can choose a new calendar style or change the dates, however the calendar options seem to be missing from my Format task pane. I can create a new document with a calendar page, but even there, the calendar options are missing, and they aren't in any of the pulldown menus.

Do I have to reinstall Publisher ?

thank you in advance for your assistance.

Welcome to Eileen's Lounge!

In Publisher 2007, you can't edit the calendar once it has been inserted. You have to insert a new calendar and select the month and year then. From Create a calendar:
Add a calendar to a publication
1. On the Insert menu, click Design Gallery Object.
2. In the Design Gallery dialog box, click Calendars.
3. Click the calendar design that you want.
Note Some designs do not include a calendar object.
4. Under Options, click the month and year that you want.
Important You must make any changes now. You cannot go back and change the month and year after you insert the calendar.
5. Click Insert Object.
Best wishes,
Hans

Thank you, Hans. I had no idea they changed that. I will give it a try tonight.
