    Generate Calendar with Specific Dates Marked

    Hi all,

    I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of my travel. Column A has the date I arrived somewhere, and Column B has the date I departed, and Column C has the name of the city I went to.

    I am wondering if there is a way to generate a calendar using my list that will mark those dates. For example, a calendar for the month of June 2008 that would show I was traveling from June 3 to June 14, either by marking those dates with a different color or labeling them with the city names, or even just putting an x in the box.

    I searched the forums and didn't find anything exactly like this. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    Erin

    Assuming the calendar cells contain Excel dates, you should be able to do it with a lookup formula in conditional formatting. Post a workbook.

    Ok, thanks! Oldchippy posted an example that I think is close to what I'm thinking, but I'm unsure how to get it to work with multiple dates or multiple months. The attachment here has some sample dates.

    Thanks for the welcome and the idea! That is definitely on the right track of what I am thinking. I posted some sample data in response to another reply here also... I am unsure how to get it to work for multiple sets of dates...

    Thank you so much! I am thrilled to have two different ways to lay it out and I think I will try them both and see which is easier to use in practice.
