    Schedule - Date - Formula - 200 articles - +/- 1 month

    Hi gurus,

    Been given a challenge to deliver 200 articles with a tolerance of +/- 1 month with following requirements:

    - 200 Articles have same warranty dates
    - Delivery Tolerance +- 1 month (Early September - Early November)
    - Delivery Time must be only 10 am or 2 pm
    - Delivery only 2 articles per day (10 articles per week)

    - Date Format: 20/03/2018 10:00:00

    Monday:
    - 1 article @ 10 am
    - 1 article @ 2pm
    Tuesday:
    - 1 article @ 10 am
    - 1 article @ 2pm
    Wednesday
    - 1 article @ 10 am
    - 1 article @ 2pm
    Thursday
    - 1 article @ 10 am
    - 1 article @ 2pm
    Friday
    - 1 article @ 10 am
    - 1 article @ 2pm

    I have created a XL sheet with 2 manual scenarios with a delivery of 10 articles per week and 20 articles per week

    Just wondering if someone could assist me on how to either get a formula or a VBA code.

    Thank you.

    I'm not sure why Thursday 1st November is not included - is that a holiday for you? If so, do you have a list of holiday dates to be avoided?

    I'm not really sure why the block of columns based on 10 articles per week starts on 29th October, whereas the block based on 20 items per week starts on 22nd October. Can you explain the difference?

    oops my bad, it was a test.

    XL uploaded again...

    Basic formula in G3 and L3
    =B3-35

    -- Where 35 is the approximate tolerance of (-)1 month --

    If I understand correctly there should be as many delivery days before as after the warranty date. If that is correct then the proposed method of filling dates may be helpful.
    1) A table is set up in R14:S20 to calculate start and end dates as well as to keep track of deliveries per date.
    2) The formulas for the start and end (for check purposes) dates respectively:

    3) The formulas that fill the dates in the Formula Schedule columns are similar to:

    4) The lines the mark week changes are produced using the following formula as a conditional formatting rule: =$J3<>$J4
    Let us know if you have any questions or if I have misunderstood what you need.
