Project Holiday Import Wizard version 2.1 released

posted 27 Jun 2012, 06:45 by Warren Bain

I have been pretty busy in the cloud (see http://ninefold.com for details) but a few people have been asking for the holiday import wizard to be able to work with Office 2010.  It will now find the Outlook 2010 Holiday file if you have Outlook installed and it will run in Project 2010 but I have not been able to test that it performs correctly in Project 2010.  Can someone try and let me know?  Download the new version from here.

The latest version of our tool for importing holidays into Microsoft Project calendars as non-working time has been released.  A new time range option has been icnluded which defaults to only display future holidays for import selection rather than all the holidays from 2002 as was the case (depending on your Outlook Holiday File version).  A number of minor bugs have also been fixed.  See the Change History for details.  Download the new version from here.

An issue with the way Hebrew dates from the Outlook Holiday file were interpreted caused some errors in the translation of Hebrew dates into Gregorian dates.  Any date later than the sixth Hebrew month in a non-leap year was incorrect.  This has now been fixed and the new version can be downloaded here: new Project Holiday Import Wizard.
