    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?

    Thanks in advance

    If I understood you well, use the VLOOKUP function

    Attention! In the formulas as a delimiter I use a semicolon (; ) if you using my formula, then perhaps you need to use a comma (,)
    Also for a decimal number I use a comma (,) you may need to use point (.) instead of

    Thanks for the reply Navic.

    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...).
