I am looking for the formula that does the following spread / distribution between a start date and an end date: if the start date is mid month it calculates 14/31, etc, then between the start and end months inserts the value 1 and for the final month identifies the value of the end date 10/31. e.g. refer to the table below.The values not equal to 1 are to be rounded up. The months reflected in the columns are the end of the month e.g. 31 Oct or 30 Nov, etc

Whilst we would rather you didn't cross-post, we know that there may be a valid reason for doing so. All we ask is that you provide the links in your original post to your question in the other forum(s). Read this to understand why: https://www.excelguru.ca/content.php?184

This forum is full of volunteers that give up their own time to help others, something that should be respected and not taken for granted. It’s never nice for someone to find out that a problem they have spent time solving for you has already been answered somewhere else without them knowing, and so we ask you to make it clear that you have also asked elsewhere.
Please provide the link(s). If you are unable to do so, tell us where else you have posted this query.
