    I need to print a bunch of schedules with lined rows and columns. Is there a program that comes with the Mac that can do that?

    1) Launch TextEdit
    2) Make sure the document is rich text formated (Format > Make Rich Text)
    3) Make a table (Format > Text > Table), a window pops up allowing you to determine the numbers of rows, columns, and cell borders.
    4) Enter your data

    Honestly, your best bet is to use a spreadsheet program or iCal. NeoOffice is free and it is easy to figure out how to do the basics. iCal is designed to help you schedule your life. The schedules are printable.

    iCal isn't suitable in this case.

    Using a table in TextEdit would work but I guess a spreadsheet would be better.

    Thanks
