    display calendar on web site (Front Page 2003)

    I want to create a web site for our Business Office and let them display on the site a calendar with upcoming deadlines. I tried creating a calendar in outlook and saving as a web page, but I got several error messages when trying to bring it up in Front Page. Can I do this through Outlook 2003? How would I set it up? Or is there a better way than using Outlook?

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Sue

    Would you want the calendar be a static HTML page that would be edited by hand, or would it be linked to a data source such as Exchange or a database?

    It would probably be pretty static once it was initially set up. For example, they might want every Tuesday to be the day by which check requests are due if they want the check that week. There would be exceptions also, such as Thanksgiving week. They would have deadlines for submitting payroll requests each week. I'm not sure if they would need to make a lot of additions during the year.

    Don't know it this might help or not, but I've created calendars for a few different sites by creating the original calendar with Word's Calendar Wizard. I then modified the calendar (graphics, modified some of the fonts and sizes, insert the appropriate information), saved each month as a pdf file, and then inserted the appropriate links in the appropriate pages. If there are many modifications later on, it's simple to update the Word calendar and then simply produce the pdf file (or files) again.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 21-Mar-06 22:33. )</P>If you have the patience to do it by hand, here is a calendar I created for an online travelogue. I have stripped out the parts that seemed unnecessary. Hope this helps.

    Added: I forgot! In your stylesheet, or in a <style></style> section at the top of the page, add this to top-align the cell contents:

    th, td {vertical-align: top;}

    Hi Sue

    You have probably done the work on this already but I thought I would just add this to the thread as this is one I played around with this tonight and got a nice calendar that can be used as a template using tables and cascading style sheets if other Loungers or yourself would like to use it.
