Hi, The file ID is 444448. Im looking for something like this in my example eg Adrian has had a few days off so i put it in the register sheet. And then i want it to mark the date on a yearly calendar for different colour codes under his personal sheet. Then be able to change calendar years and of course add new employees to the list. Thanks Jen

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 9 months ago.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.


Red for sick all day, and orange for going home early, green for personal day off.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 9 months ago.
how in your table are you determining which one of those it is?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.


I dont know Yell

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 9 months ago.
I mean I see 2 columns with 1s and 0s

if you want to add a 3rd column

column 1 = sick
column 2 = early
column 3 = personal

then something like that could work

you have to click enable content if you get this message. Or this will not work.

When you open the sheet goto your main sheet, then click the "update celandar" button at the top of the sheet, and the macro will do the rest. You can fill in as much data as you want and click the button again to re-run the macro.

let me know if you have any questions, problems, concerns, ect.

Yes that how i want it to work thank you. Can you add another coloum and colour for Late's.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.


Also what are the green little triangles in the grey shaded area of the register?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 9 months ago.
I will be happy to make modifications after we complete this transaction. Since making further modifications goes beyond the original request, the site requires that this be a new question.

The little green triangles just mean that I entered some of the 1s manually instead of using whatever formula you were using.
