Pre Requisites & Compatibility

Microsoft Excel/ Microsoft Office

If you have Microsoft Excel, you will be up and running in minutes.  You also have familiarity with using the Holiday Scheduler software, although it’s quite user friendly and simple to navigate.  For help, contact MTIS or take a look at one of our brief training videos.

Long File Names in Office 2013

When one of our customers installed Office 2013 on one of their PCs they suddenly could no longer get the Holiday Scheduler to function. Thanks to some investigative work by Chris Quick of Crusade Computer Solutions it was discovered that in Excel 2013 there is a limit to the number of characters in the file name.

In Office 2013, if you go above 31 characters the file will not function properly and any macros will be disabled. MTIS has re-named the files since 2014 with shorter names to help resolve this issue.
