    Post Auto Populate different Cells depending on date entered

    Hi,

    I have a spreadsheet with a planned date column and dates running across the sheet. When I populate the planned date column I am looking for it to fill in a cell with block colour according to the date entered. Would appreciate some help with this. Ideally I would like to have a planned start and planned completion column that would fill in the cells inbetween these two dates.

    Kind Regards,

    John

    Hi jpjb

    See the attached, is this something that you could use! The file is a .xls as your profile is Excel 2003.

    The formula for the conditional formatting is: =AND(D$1>=$B2,D$1<=$C2)

    Also I have put another CF to exclude weekends as well.
    Regards Kevin
