Free yearly planner for your Filofax

So far, we've produced a whole variety of diary layouts, but what's been missing until now is the big picture of the year on a page. Ray and I just had to tick that one off, so today we're sharing yearly planner pages for the A4 or A5 Filofax, and a fold out version for the Personal Filofax.

First of all, we're offering the pre-built, 2012 versions. Here is the A4 and A5 version:

You can download this as a Word file or as a PDF file. Either way, simply print for an A4 version or print on A4 using booklet mode for an A5 page.

Alternatively you can print this A4 Word file or this PDF file and Z fold it to fit A5. 

Here's the version for the Personal Filofax:

Download either the Word file or the PDF file. You can find cutting and folding tips for this one in this post.

Source files

If you want to tinker, you can download the source files. For the A4/A5 version you'll need this Word file and this Excel file. For the Personal version you'll need this Word file and the same Excel file. For the Z fold version you will need this Word file and the same Excel file.

If you're into the whole mail merge thing and want to poke around under the bonnet, you'll find we've done this layout a little differently. Each record is just a month and we've used a special type of mail merge called a catalogue or directory merge to put twelve separate records on one page. To ensure you only get one header row on the table, we placed that in the document's header.

  1. Dear Steve,

    thank you for creating this planner. I am one of those hopeful tweakers however, but shamefully Excel illiterate - now quite possibly Word as well... I simply want to use what you have provided to create a year planner with a different font, but I can't for the life of me figure out this catalogue merge to get 12 months on one page - any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Kind regards,


  2. Hi Steve is it possible to chose a different date range in the datafile options? I'm looking at doing a tax year planner for 6/4 to 5/4. Thanks.

    1. Not sure, might be able to change it so it does an April to April one but then it's going to be 13 months, so it won't fit.

  3. Ah, yes, never thought about that!!! Thanks
