Lotus Notes has a decent calendar which can also handle recurring events. Even so, and due to the Power Of Plain Text, I prefer to "manage" anniversaries in a simple text file. That isn’t quite true, but at least I can produce a simple text file, one date per line in DD.MM.YYYY format like so:
28.05.1962 JP 06.09. Sue
A simple Perl program massages the input into output suitable for an import formula to Lotus Notes:
2005:05:28:JP:Birthday 28.05.1962 2005:09:06:Sue:Birthday 06.09.
That should be stored into a
whatever.txt file which can then be imported
into Lotus Notes with a suitable COL definition file. The one I use and the
Perl program are [available1
