How can I use formattable page types (Enhanced Text, All Purpose, Homework With Text Formatting) to post a Grid-Style Calendar or other tabular info such as a spreadsheet on my web?
The Table page type allows you to create a basic table, ideal for a weekly schedule style layout.
You could also use the All Purpose or the Enhanced Text page types to create a table that you can set up however you like. Both of these page types include a formatting toolbar with a variety of options, including the ability to create your own tables within the page.
To create a grid-style Calendar, the best option would be to use the "Calendar (Grid-style Enhanced Calendar)" page type in conjunction with the Calendar: Manage Events feature in the Update Index. See http://support.teacherweb.com/index.php?action=kb&article=153 for instructions. This is the simplest and most versatile way to create a grid calendar on TeacherWeb.
It is also technically possible to use formattable page types to post tables to set up grid calendars. (We recommend that you first try the Enhanced Calendar option described above, as this option is specifically designed for this purpose and is generally easier to use.) We provide some template grid calendars that can be copied and pasted into these page types. You can copy and paste these templates into one of the following formattable page types:
- Homework With Text Formatting pages

You can also use Microsoft Word's® Calendar Wizard to create a grid-style calendar that can be copied into the page. Different versions of Word use different procedures. You can use your version of Word's Help facility for instructions. You may go to http://search.officeupdate.microsoft.com/TemplateGallery/ct133.asp to see various calendar templates.
For Word 97/98, you would select File|New and then choose the Other Documents tab and select the CalendarWizard.wiz as your template. If you do not see CalendarWizard.wiz as one of the choices, you can go to http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/9798/wdtmgmt.aspx to download wdtmgmt.EXE to install the Calendar Wizard. For later versions of Word, you can create a new document and open the calendar template.
