        OMG Please add! I have gone to YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVgUtRix-IE and found instructions on how to add a plugin to the right click menu. It required VBA programming which I'm not good with but was well worth the effort. I use it nearly every day. It works very well 98% of the time but sometimes fails to load and it does not work when trying to insert a date into a defined Excel Table.

        I think, I'm the 10.146.582th Person, wich is totally angry about the taken out date picker. I've been using it in more then 50 EXCEL/VBA Projects and all of them stopped running after some Office Updates. Finaly I've fixed ma VBA Projects by Building my own Date Picker with Forms-Elements but this is much more complex, then the previous solution with the old Date Picker active x Control. And yes, a Date Picker in cells, wich are formated as Date Fields is also nessesary, due to to much Errors bases on wrong date entries, wich crashes the Code or leads formulas into the "N/A" state or similar.
        With Kind regards, Dieter Reimann

        Add 'date picker' to enable users to select a date from a mini calendar into cells should be a standard feature of Excel
