One for the Excel gurus. I've been using some functions in Excel to work out which days of a range of days are weekends (networkdays function). It is very good and one I hadn't seen before.
How can someone help me with the following.
I have a sheet which represents the month of May. It is formatted into a range of cells representing the days of the month.
Row 1 (cells 2 to 32) are the dates.
On another sheet, I have a cell where I can put a start date and another cell where I can put an end date.
Now depending on these dates I put in, how can I get the cells on the month sheet to either colour themselves or have a text label entered into the cell?
Does that make sense?
So it works kind of like a diary. Example:
Start Date: 01/05/2010
End Date : 14/05/2010
Total of days: 13
So on the diary page, it colours in Cells A2:A15 in Red.

I think I understand what you want
Sadly, conditional formatting (at least in 2003) can't refer to cells on another sheet, so i had to have two hidden columns.
Hope its ok.
