    Dates in gant/pivot table?

    Hi, I am trying to create a chart/report that shows me the following information

    I have for example suppliers 1 2 3 4 etc..
    they are booked on 1/7/2014 for 3 days.
    All i have is the start date.

    How do make a formula to assume they are also booked on 2/7/2014 and 3/7/2014

    Ie
    supplier 1 start 1/7 booked for 3 days
    supplier 2 start 2/7 booked for 2 days
    supplier 3 start 3/7 booked for 10 days

    I am thinking the booked value is = 1 and not booked = 0
    this way can see how many suppliers are booked on 1 day.. easy on the above, but in lots of lines- excel!

    thanks for help

    Re: Dates in gant/pivot table?

    Formula I used is

    IF(AND(date >= start_date, date <= end_date), 1, 0)

    And then I colored with conditional formatting; anything greater than 0.5 gets the yellow colors. You can adjust that.

    (Plus a table of dates and COUNTIFS that delivers the same thing).

    I also slapped a stacked bar chart in with a date axis to show another way to display Gantt charts.
