    How to conditionally format/adjust adjacent cells based on text in specific cells.

    m trying to set up a calendar that autofills dates based on what items are due on that date. (Ex 9/12/21 would fill with items that are scheduled to be completed on that date) My current code is as follows

    =IF(ISERROR(INDEX($AC$1:$AD$92,SMALL(IF($AC$1:$AC$92=$F$35,ROW($AC$1:$AC$92)),ROW(3:3)),2)),"",INDEX($AC$1:$AD$92,SMALL(IF($AC$1:$AD$92=$F$35,ROW($AC$1:$AC$92)),ROW(3:3)),2))
    The index is pulling from a array populated by the following code

    ='ACTIVE-Unit Turns Needed'!AD5&IF('ACTIVE-Unit Turns Needed'!O5>0,"(" &'ACTIVE-Unit Turns Needed'!O5&" Days)",)
    As you can see, I'm getting the days needed from a date as well(If the due date is 7/17, but it will take 5 days, this would be appended). The calendar works great as is, but if possible, I'd like to set it up so that these items are pulled across the table(an item due on 7/17 that takes 5 days would actually be listed across 7/13-7/17, those 5 days). I'm worried about overlap, and about getting across weekends. I know it's an ambitious project, but any help would be great. In the mean time, I'll continue messing with it myself :^).

    Please upload a workbook or a representative cut down copy, anonymised if necessary. It is always easier to advise if we can see your request in its context.

    Show a before and after situation with manually calculated results, explaining which information is data and which is results, and if it's not blindingly obvious how you have arrived at your results some explanatory notes as well.

    To upload a file click the Go Advanced button at the foot of your post, look underneath the post area for the Manage Attachments section and take it from there.

    If you want help with an excel file, upload an excel file (as requested), not a csv file, please
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
