Weekly Calendar with Planning Page

In my calendars I like some kind of long range RADAR, typically in form of small monthly thumbnails.
Some weeks ago I saw a design, where the current month is like a ruler at the bottom of a left page and the next month is at the bottom of the right page. Based on my sweetheart calendar I made a proof of concept. The whole week is lefthand and planning space is on the right side. The current week is shaded in the ruler for accentuation.

Paper size: 
A5

Usage advice: 

In the first table you set the starting date in cell A1. The rest is dead simple. The only tricky thing is setting the margins for the individual printer. Or make a direct export to pdf and do the scaling with Adobe Reader.

Looks a bit messed up

I like this, but it looks a bit messed up on my computer, I suspect I need special fonts that you use? Just guessing.

Is A5 the same as Classic/Junior size?

Almost

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_size

A5 is a bit taller and a bit narrower than Classic/Junior/Statement
just as A4 is a bit taller and a bit narrower than Letter

The U.S. is so out of step with the rest of the planet. :P

Andale Sans

is the name of the font in this template.
I didn't install it manually, but I do not know how it came into my system. Maybe the linux distribution (Suse) or the optional microsoft font package or openoffice provided it.

Have Fun

I added an English version

The font showed up in my Open Office.

I changed "jjjj" to "yyyy" for years, and changed "t.mm.jjjj" to "m/d/yyyy" for the date span

The tough one was getting the day names at the bottom to work. I tried setting the font as small as 4 points, but Monday still showed as "###" rather than "Mon". Dang English and their three-letter short day names. Why can't they use two like a lot of the rest of the world ? (grumble, grumble, grumble) Finally found a "Shrink to fit cell size" under the Alignment tab of the Format Cell dialog.

Enjoy !

Automatic?

Is there anyway you can print a whole set of pages (like for a date range, or even by copying and pasting something?) or do you have to change the starting date for each new week?
