    Populating list of dates from another sheet with Start Dates and End Dates

    I would like to populate a second Excel sheet, consisting of a list of dates, with project names according to the first spreadsheet.

    I've attached an example with the second sheet manually-populated that I would like to be populated automatically.

    I'm also curious if more than one project can be listed after a date if dates overlap (ie, on the example, for November 5th, "Project A, Project B".

    Re: Populating list of dates from another sheet with Start Dates and End Dates

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    To get the 1st name is easy...
    =IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$4,MATCH(Sheet2!A2,Sheet1!$B$2:$B$4)),"")
    To add additional names will get tricky. What would the max amount of extra names be?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)

    Sorry for the delay - this task got sidelined at work. What if, on the second sheet, there could be more than one row of a certain date, each with a different project listed? Is that more simple? I'm attaching a revised example (see November 5th).

    I have taken a slightly different approach on this, using Conditional Formatting to highlight the date range in each row - it shows up the "overlap" really well, not sure is this is something you can work with?

    Try array-entering this in C2 and filling down.

    If you arenít familiar with array-entered formulas array enter means the formula must be committed from edit mode by simultaneously pressing and holding down Ctrl and Shift while hitting Enter.
