    Calendar to highlight current day

    Got this Birthday Calendar on this site and just trying to make little changes. Is there a way to have the current day highlighed,and default the year to current in D1. This
    is a handy thing to have for older people that forget friends Birthdays. LOL

    Maybe if this is not possible a MessageBox to show wrong year?. The workbook should
    open to current year.

    Any other suggestion to make this work? Just not sure how to do
    a messagebox if calendar is on a different year from current year.

    Re: Calendar to highlight current day

    Hello
    I'm trying to get cell D1 to show current year on workbook open (2013). Right now the cell uses Data Valation to set the year, I still
    want this option, just trying to default the cell with current year on open. When you change the years the calendar changes to,I guess if
    I could get D1 to show current year that would work, and forget about changing the year with valation.

    Re: Calendar to highlight current day

    Sorry if I did not explain right, you have to look at sample to see what I mean. In D1 it shows the year that was set in Data Valation, I want to be able
    to change years if I can but not a big deal.I want D1 to be on current year,but if I set it the calendar does not work?. Think something in cell D3 needs changed.

    Re: Calendar to highlight current day

    Yes that is Perfect Fotis. I will play around a little and see if when I change the year the age of a person changes to if they have a birthday in that month.
