Download a calendar template:
Browse through the calendar templates (or create one), choose an Excel calendar template that is best for you. Click the Download button on the template page, open the template file in Excel, and then edit and save your calendar.
Note: By default, a template file download goes into the Downloads folder on your computer. You may want to copy the template file to a different location so that you can easily find it later.
Hoffe das ich Ihnen mit diesen Informationen weiterhelfen konnte.

Ahh, Narnia meets Lord of the Rings meets Wrinkle in Time
May I suggest you spell out a bit more fully how much the days in those fantasy months might vary. Are there twelve fantasy months, more or less, or does that number itself vary. Do the number of days in Januly vary each time Januly rolls around? Or is it just that Januly has 15 days whereas Febember has 44?
And so forth?
I think you're going to have to create a new function, which can be done in Mac or in Windows, but you need to spell the situation out a bit more before anybody can help.

Well, here's a start. I'll keep noodling on this to see if I can turn it into something more functional. And let's invite others to do the same.
How do you plan to use this calendar IN your fantasy world? This includes such things as "Are there seven day weeks?" "Do the days of the week have names?" Or some other span called a week? And so forth..... All of those kinds of questions would be important to think through in order to start using that matrix meaningfully.

OK, Trusted and Respected Contributors, here's a challenge along the lines of the ones that @Twifoo has issued in the past.
Please refer to the full thread above.
Lets see if we can come up with a reasonable approach to the request that @ChristianHauer has issued: creating a workable fantasy calendar, 14 months to the year, months of varying lengths as specified in the table created above.
I'm assuming that we'll do what the "real calendar" does, begin with a day zero and that have each day increment that by 1, so that date math can easily be done. But how to set it up so Christian, in his fantasy story, can do such things as:

@Riny_van_Eekelen Your reaction is entirely understandable.
@ChristianHauer : let Riny's response challenge you to give a more clear description of what you need to be able to do with this fantasy calendar beyond what has been said above.
In the meantime, I'm hopeful that at least one of the people I addressed in my last post may have an intimate understanding of how the "normal" calendar in Excel works, and how something like array math might be able to at least let you do basic calendar math (adding and subtracting dates and intervals). I'm still working on that myself, having a greater interest in fantasy literature than my accountant friend.

I'm just realizing, based on what you wrote this last time, @ChristianHauer , that it sounds like your time travel is between THIS world (and THIS calendar) and THAT fantasy world and THAT fantasy calendar. Is that correct?
So this leads to some more questions. I don't know if you're aware that behind dates in Excel is a serial number. The number for today, 1/4/22 is 44,565. Day one, in Excel's universe (which I suppose qualifies as a fantasy world of its own), is Jan 1, 1900. Days before that would carry a negative number, but I think in reality (in Excel reality) they get tricky. So the questions:
And any other info that would help us picture/envision that fantasy universe will be, well, helpful.

Just wanted to drop a line saying I'm having fun with this, even making some progress. It'll likely take another couple of days, however, because I do have a life in the real world.
By the way, have you read Time and Again? https://smile.amazon.com/Time-Again-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00AK9IY0O/ref=sr_1_1?crid=QXKI893YQXA0&keywords...
What little you've said of your story reminds me of this classic by Jack Finney. Weaves real history in with sci-fi with illustrations from actual news magazines of the past....
