    Sort data table into sets/groups where sum of X<40, Y<80 and z<50

    Hi there, first time user post, however I have always admired from affar.

    I have come under a bit of stress at work and need to plan a months worth of work by the end of next week. I have a list of data which looks something like:
    Visit A B C
    Visit 1 5 10 3
    Visit 2 9 17 4
    Visit 3 2 6 4
    Visit 4 6 10 11
    Visit 5 5 12 7
    Visit 6 7 6 2

    I have only shown 6 visits, but I have to plan over 300 visits that need to be performed during July. I need to work out what days we can perform each of the 300 visits, where the total of constraint A, B and C cannot be more than, A <40, B <80 and C< 50. Is anyone able to help me produce a formula via VBA or solver that would perform a first fit decreasing algorithm, and sort the list into groups (effectively days) i.e day one perform visits 1,3,4... day two perform (2,5,7...)

    Hello kamikan and Welcome to Excel Forum.
    Perhaps this will help relieve some of the stress.
    In the attached file 100 visits are listed in column A with corresponding values in column B:D
    Row 1 is populated with the weekdays in July.
    Column E is populated using the formula: =AND(SUM($B$2:$B2)<40,SUM($C$2:$C2)<80,SUM($D$2:$D2)<50) which would manually need to be dragged down the column at least until it displays a blank cell.
    Starting with column F the rest of the sheet is populated using:
    Formula: copy to clipboard
