How to create a drop down list calendar (date picker) in Excel?
With drop down calendar in Excel worksheet, you can easily select a specific date from it without manually typing. This tutorial shows you how to create a calendar in Excel worksheet using the ActiveX Control.
For creating a drop down calendar in Excel, please do as follows.
Note: This method works with Microsoft Excel 2007 and 32-bit versions of Excel 2016, 2013 and 2010.

- 1). In Excel 2010 and the later version, click File > Options. And in the Options dialog box, click Customize Ribbon in the right pane, check the Developer box, then click the OK button. See screenshot:
- 2). If you are using Excel 2007, click Office button > Excel Options. In the Excel Options dialog box, click Popular in the right bar, then check the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon box, and finally click the OK button.
2. Then click Developer > Insert > More Controls. See screenshot:
3. In the More Control dialog box, select Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control 6.0 (SP6) and then click the OK button.

There is no option in Excel 2007 to change the weekend days.
You can change it in networkdays functions.
