I have a calendar file that contains references (I'm guessing) to cells that update the year/month, etc. Once I have it the way I want to use it, I would then like to tell it to save as strictly a text file. In other words, I don't want any references, macros, etc. to save with the file, can I do that? If so, how? Currently if I save the file, then enter an appointment it enters the same appointment in each month - I don't want that. Help!

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I am using Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 (home and work).

Re: Excel

Not very clear.
- Cells don't update anything, so your first line is totally unclear.
- What do you mean with references?
- If you enter one appointment and it multiplies that appointment it's programmed to do so. If you don't like that, change it.

If you save it as pdf, strictly seen it isn't a text file and you can't very well read in in Notepad, but it might be useful for you anyway.

You could always use Print Screen.

You could get what you want on the screen, then hit ALT-PrintScreen, then paste it into Paint, then crop out the part you want & paste the result into a word processor like Word. That would save it as a graphic. That's about all I could tell you without actually seeing the spreadsheet.
Good luck.
