    Shift Rota Help!!

    Hey All,

    Hoping someone can help me out i am sure it is a simple solution but i am coming up blank.
    I am creating a shift rota for a manufacturing facility 3 shifts Dayshift, BackShift and Nightshift.
    I have a holiday report on one tab with the employee name in colum B:B and the 1st date of the holiday in column D:D and the last day of the holiday in Column E:E

    On the Rota tab i have 3 shifts Sunday to Friday for each machine. What i am trying to do is once the employee name has been put into that shift for that day for a helper cell to do a countifs or something to search that date monday, tue etc. and see if they are due to be off on holiday. from there i can format it to go red if they are off using the helper cells, That is what i am thinking.

    If you think there is a better way i am happy to go that route too
    I have included snagits of the tabs below

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated

    Its better including an attachment, and using table names may be better but as a conditional format, use a formula and put the below and choose background of red

    in d3 countifs(leavesheetcolumn$D:$D,">="&d$1,leavesheetcolumn$D:$D,"<="&D$1)

    Highlight D3:N20 (or whatever the last row is instead of 20). Then add a new conditional format based on this formula:

    Substitute 'Holidays' with the name of the sheet that you're using to track annual leave.

    It still leaves you with the problem that, for example, the nightshift employee may have holiday booked the following day but it doesn't flag this as an issue.
