Yup Outlook. Just put them on through Outlook and sync.

But is there a program that I can run that will "automatically" run them, or do I just need to add them one at a time individually?

Outlook will add them automatically, all of them.

Outlook > Calendar > Tools > Options > Calendar Options > about halfway down > Add Holidays.

If you use Google calendar, I think you can synch with that, and it probably has an option to add holidays. I don't use Google calendar, but others here do.

I have holidays showing on my Outlook2003 calendar, but they didn't come over with Sycn that I can see. Is there a setting I need to check?

5Sep08- Finally figured it out. BB and Outlook define "All Day Appointment" differently. I deleted all my holidays, revised my All-Day to less than a 24 hour period, and reapplied the holidays. Syncing brought them over.

Running 2003 Outlook, Vista PC, tried the add holidays option. It added dates from 2000 to 2006, (on my PC) nothing after that!! What's up? How do I get this year and after?

I think it's Vista telling you to upgrade Outlook....

I don't have Vista, but it sounds like a Windows problem. Maybe try looking in the Help in Outlook 2003. Or hopefully someone else will know.

How did you add the holidays to Outlook? Did you go to Options > Calender Option, and click Add Holidays, then choose which country's holidays to add? Did you click Apply in the main options window when you were done?

Ok, that is odd. Did you try removing the holidays? I'd do that, close Outlook, then reboot the machine and try adding the holidays again.

Found this link, may have some clues, esp. for Wolfee57, who said:

For adding holidays for 2007 to 2011, check here:
Description of the updates for Outlook 2003 and for Office 2003 MUI Packxxx58; March 15, 2007

You should be sure you have all the lastst Microsoft Office updates as well. These things might not work if Outlook/Office is not updated.
