  • Weekday - Type the weekday on which the holiday falls.
  • Name - Type the name of the holiday.

Press CTLR+C and return to the Import Holidays Excel screen.

Paste the select into the pane.

Click Convert.  The Duty Officer Program application will convert the data you copied and pasted from the template.

Once done, click the purple Import button.
