    Auto Populating Info from cells to a calendar by date

    Hello all,

    My name is Jason I am new to this forum and had no where else to turn for some help.

    Ok guys, I have run into a serious road block with an excel document. Heres what I am trying to do, bare with me!

    Example, and I can post the excel document if anyone needs to see it. I am creating a document for 3 shifts, within each shift, every hour my line workers have to fill out a document that contains a few different numbers and percentages, so im trying to create 8 hours, that auto populate into one sheet for their 8hr shift, x3 for 3 shifts, ive then auto populated their entire shift sheet onto a totals page, which shows each shifts totals, then auto populated the shift totals to a cell for daily totals. The problem ive run into is i want to create a calander that pulls that info by date and populates it into the calendar which then will populate it into a graph, so he can take to meeting. I have done most of the work, but i cannot figure out how to have excel populate info from one day to the next without erasing the previous days info. Is there any way to do this?

    Everything starts from the top left corner of every shift sheet which goes to shift totals, which goes to daily totals on the same page which then goes to the calendar and then the graph.

    I havend done each sheet yet for every hour, thats easy once i figure out the calendar part. Thanks for any and all help.

    Put this is a standard module.

    It copies the totals from the totals page and looks up the date and insert them into the Calendar sheet.

    You can put a commandbutton on the totals sheet to call the macro.

    Will this formula keep the information day to day or will it erase the previous days info, once a new date is typed in?

    If you run it the same day, it will overwrite that day's value in the calendar. Otherwise, it looks up the date from the Totals page and inserts the totals onto the Calendar page.

    Yeah I understand that if I run the that twice in the same day it will overwrite anything that was previously input, but, will say toay i use that code, and it fills in todays date, at the end of the day i save my doc. and then tomorrow run it again. Will the code erase yesterdays data out of the calender, or will it keep yesterdays date and continuously update day to day.

    Whatever date is in 'Shift Totals'!H25, then it will only post the data to that day.

    Sheet name Calendar is misspelled. I had corrected it on my Sheet.

    Just change the code to the Sheet spelling.

    (That's my OCD kicking in.)

    Yeah ended up figuring it out. That formula is pretty amazing, how/where did you learn how to do that?

    Started with Excel 97. I needed to figure out a problem. Bought a book. Studied the forums. The rest is history.

    Re: Auto Populating Info from cells to a calendar by date

    Well I appreciate it, i had been stumped on that for about 2 days pulling my hair out trying everything i knew how to get the info to populate without erasing prior days info, works great. Once again i really appreciate the help. The last class i took was back in 2000, and i typically up until my new job never used excel that much other than for basic spreadsheets.

    I do not. I have only recorded a few macros while adding a graph.

    But as Cutter has indicated, you're original question has been answered. If you have another question about a graph, start a new message.

    Good luck!
