    Hi @Sherazad Ahmed ,

    1.Copy & Paste
    Per my test, it works on SharePoint Online, but doesn't paste on SharePoint 2016.

    2.As a workaround,import excel data into a normal list, then create and switch to calendar view.
    1)add an app

    2)Select Import Spreadsheet

    3)Import an excel to a list

    4)Create a Calendar View

    Thank you Xuyan. Incidentally, soon after posting this, the though to check if a list had a calendar view came to mind. Lol.
