2. Input the Year and the Month You Want to Generate

You need to input two quantities: the year and the month. Input the year to the cell B7 on the right of the cell with the label Year. Afterwards, select the month from the dropdown box in the cell D7 on the right of the cell with the label Month.

For our example, we want to generate the calendar for February 2024. We then input 2024 to cell B7 then select February in the dropdown box.
