A new year brings in a new set of holidays that need to be in your calendar. Adding holidays for Outlook 2003 and 2007 is VERY easy to do by following the below directions. For Outlook 2000 or 2002 it is a bit more challenging, but can be done by using a file that has the holidays in it and doing an import of that information. The holiday file can be found on the Internet be searching for “outlook.hol” but make sure the file has the latest holidays in it since it could be stale or incorrect (Microsoft’s earlier version had wrong information for some holidays).
For Outlook 2003 and 2007
- Open Outlook
- Click on Tools then Options
- Click on the Calendar Options button
- Click on the Add Holidays button which is half way down on that window
Have a great holiday!
