1. ## Lookup and If (Need help find the best way to do this)

Greetings Excel Gurus,

Wondering if you could help me with a formula to achieve this automatically. I am trying to generate a employee schedule and want to achieve the below.

 01-Jan 02-Jan 03-Jan 04-Jan 05-Jan 06-Jan 07-Jan 08-Jan 09-Jan 10-Jan 11-Jan 12-Jan 13-Jan 14-Jan 15-Jan 16-Jan 17-Jan 18-Jan 19-Jan 20-Jan 21-Jan 22-Jan 23-Jan 24-Jan 25-Jan 26-Jan 27-Jan 28-Jan 29-Jan 30-Jan 31-Jan Schedule Start Schedule End Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Employee 1 Sun Wed D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X Employee 2 Sat Tue X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X Employee 3 Mon Thu D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X Employee 4 Tue Fri X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D Employee 5 Sun Wed D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X X D D D D X X

If Employee 1 Schedule start is Sun, then lookup the day from row 2 and enter "D" if (Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed) and "X" if (Thu, Fri, Sat)

If Employee 2 Schedule start is Sat, then lookup the day from row 2 and enter "D" if (Sat, Sun, Mon, Tue) and "X" if (Wed, Thu, Fri)

If Employee 3 Schedule start is Mon, then lookup the day from row 2 and enter "D" if (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu) and "X" if (Fri, Sat, Sun)

2. Hi and welcome
Please,do not crosspost your question on multiple forums without including links here to the other threads on other forums.

Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).
If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question

Do not post any further responses in this thread until a link has been provided to these cross posts.
