Way to create Outlook Calendar Events from Spreadsheet


If I have a spreadsheet that contains all of the relevant data (Subject, Location, Start and End Times, Notes), is there a way to automatically create Outlook Calendar Events?

I'll try that and try to understand it.  It looks like it's just for one record.  Would you know how to revise it so that it loops through a spreadsheet?

You can setup a CSV file with the relevant details to Import into Outlook.

For example the attached does Bank Holidays.

I was actually hoping to do it via VBA.  I think I would know how to do it via an import.  I was just hoping to learn a new trick.

You could amend the code on the suggested link to pull data from columns in a worksheet.

You would then need a For/Next or Do/Loop statement amending the row reference for the required data.

eg

For R = 1 to 10

Copy data from Row R, Column A
Copy data from Row R, Column B
Copy data from Row R, Column C...

Next R

This would loop thorugh rows 1 to 10 copying data.

The range of values for R could be dynamic if so required

Thanks
