is it possible to create a non VBA calender in Excel?

Thank you for your question:
In answer; No, Excel does not have the ability to create a calendar which automatically updates outside of using VBA. However you can always double click on the clock at the bottom right of your screen, or even hover over it to get the date. I'm joking.
You could create an updatable cell or cells, if you click in a cell and type the formula =NOW() and format it to your liking, it will display the current date and time, if you now press the F9 key (Function 9) on the keyboard it will update.
I have used this method, with four cells. One for the time, one the day, one the month and the last for the year, each formatted to only display the required element. Open your worksheet and press F9 and the current date and time are displayed, and subsequent F9 presses will continue to update the cells throughout the day. I hope that has helped a bit.... Pete
Type =RAND()*200 to generate a number between 1 and 200.
