So, I just got promoted to a new position at my company (Yay!). Unfortunately, the new requirements involve scheduling a ridiculous number of people. It turns out my predecessor has just been doing dozens of iterations manually until one kind of worked, but every slight change puts a bunch of other things out of wack. I feel like Excel could probably be capable of doing it, but I have no idea how I would go about designing such a spread sheet. [more inside]

I have an Excel document listing dates times and other information. I'd like to import this "calendar" to iCal but cannot figure out to get the information imported properly. I found this tool, but couldn't get it to work. I also found this application, iCal Maker but it doesn't seem to work either. Anyone have an idea on how to import a bunch of events listed in an Excel document to iCal? [More Inside] [more inside]
I have a mountain of data to move from dozens of Excel spreadsheets into an Access database. The database is an existing one and sort-of documented. How do I go about doing this?
