# Thread: help creating working schedules

1. ## help creating working schedules

Hello,

In my work i have to make weekly working schedules for my co-workers.

Almost all of them are part time workers and have a first main job.

I have 2 or 3 cases that they have a rotating schedule on their first job but it's always the same:

example

day 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15....
schedule A A A B B C C C F F A A A B B....

A- 08:00-16:00
B 16:00-24:00
c- 24:00-08:00
F- day off

So i know what the schedule that they will make on the other company, but i just want that to fill automaticaly on my own schedule when i insert the day of the month.

Can anyone help me with this tricky formula?

The thing is what about day 16 or 2 months from now? I want to know what schedule he does on the other job without having to count days or wasting time.

what i tought was if he in 01/05/2019 is doing the A schedule, on the day_x will be =day_x - 01/05/2019 and that number will correspond to a posicion on his other schedule (A,B,C...).

1st sheet set your example situation
2nd sheet same situation with expected result

6. Sorry for the late response it has been a little bit busy around here.

What i put on that excel was the type of working schedules that i do and the types of schedules my co-workers got on their other job.

What i need is a formula that returns the schedule that they make on the other job only having me to input the dates that i want to know.

Thanks for all

7. I'm sorry but I do not understand you. (Keep in mind that English is not my mother tongue). Read my previous post one more time. I asked you to list some examples of expected results. In which cell you want the formula.
What's in there is confusing for me. Date 3.5.2019 does not exist in the table above.
You should have set more examples of expected results.

8. Probably it's my English, it's not my mother language too.

The date 3/05/2019 it's on purpose, the data that we know is:

-on that day the schedule of subject 2 in the other company is A, so in the day 6/05/2019 should be B

-Subject 3 on the 03/05/2019 is F and on the day 6/05/2019 should be M

But i want excel to calculate this automatically without me to have to count days.

1. Why exactly 3.5.2019 date?
2. You mention the 6.5.2019 date, what does the logic of that date, has to 3.5.2019?
3. What about other dates, 7.mai, 8.mai, 9.mai etc, do you make shifts for these dates manually?
4. The difference between the two dates is 3 days, why exactly three days?
5. What is the logic of the shift schedule?
6. Does it seem to me that there should be a formula and fixed data in the range? Is there in a range of cells fixed data that you are putting the manually or all cells should contain a formula?
7. Does this mean, if a subject is free at a certain Date (ie 'F'), you give him a job at a certain time.

I do not even know what I would ask you because I do not understand your logic?
Note: Excel formula requires logic and arguments.
Look at my attachment and enter the expected results manually.
