    Project Tracking

    I am in desperate need to help with a project tracking/management tool. Specifically I need to calculate delays in milestones. I have been researching for a while now and can not decide on the best method. As of now I would like to show the current task due for the project (drawings , tooling, samlples) and how far they are behind each day. This should fairly simple - but I would like it to be automated.

    If the actual date of completion is blank on the date I would like it to pull what milestone is currently blank and how many days past the original schedule we are. From what I am reading this is pretty straight forward if you are experienced in excel - which I am not.

    The milestone, actual date, and original date are all on the same row.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    First, the best method for developing a project tracking/management tool is to buy one.

    It would be much easier to answer this question if you attached your file. This is a pretty straightforward question, though. On each row you could have an extra column for Days Late. You only give a vague idea of the result you want, but that's how I would do it. The formula for Days Late would be


    where A1 is the actual completion date and B1 is original planned date.
