    My partner has COPD with only 35% lung function so it is important that we keep an eye on oxygen levels in her blood. With that aim I have created a simple Word doc which I upload to my OneDrive which she has access to and she can put in her daily readings.

    My issue is to keep things simple for her I put in the months dates prior to uploading and this is a tedious business. I know how to do this very easily with Excel but excel does not play nice when it comes to editing on Android, though that might be a fault of mine.

    My question is: Is there a simple way of adding all the months dates at once in the doc below?

    Fill it in Excel. Copy it to Word as text :)

    Cheers guys.
    Found this https://www.wikihow.com/Convert-Excel-to-Word and all works pretty well with a few tweaks.

    You could put Google Sheets on your phone/tablet and do it there. Might be easier.

    I did and it wasn't. This works for me now and far less laborious than adding each date individually.

    It’s a shame how technology is almost but not quite there with respects to useability on portable devices.
