i was asked to make a fair rota and i found this 1 on this website its useful but i need to add to it. if you download this work rota you will understand what i mean
http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/attachme...0&d=1154640274. i need to find out what the formula/macro is used in this work rota ...its exactly what i need but i need to add saturday and sunday to this rota and more duty columns as their is more employees and when i click the button it randomply places employees in different positions.

I am currently trying to create a rota / rosta for work which will show people what hours they are required to work, in a format similar to below:

NAME | SAT | SUN | MON | TUE |etc > Person A| 8:00 - 17:00 | 13:00 - 22:00 | OFF | 8:00 - 13:00| Person B| OFF | 17:00 - 22:00 | 8:00 - 17:00| OFF |

This is simple enough to create but I also need Excel to calculate how many hours each person is working in a week and the total number of hours used per day and per week. I found out that I can do this using a formula to work out hours and minutes between two times. However what I would also like Excel to do is deduct the unpaid breaks which the person is entitled to, however this depends on the times that they work, i.e. in the example above Person A would be entitled to a 1 hour unpaid lunch on Saturday, a half hour unpaid tea on Sunday and no unpaid break on Tuesday. Therefore 1 hour would be deducted off the Saturday total hours, 30 minutes would be deducted from the Sunday total hours and nothing taken off the Tuesday.

What i would like to do is, create a random weekly work rota, so I just have to go in every week and let excel randomly but fairly creat a rota the employees so that they don't argue about whose doing what and just get on with the work. : D

I have 3 columns in an excel sheet (ID, Signed by & To be checked), and in another sheet, I have names under a column "Checkers".

I need a macro where in if I run it "To be checked" column in sheet 1 should be equally assigned to the "Checkers" in sheet 2 and the rest should be blanks.

I need to assign van seating assignments to a client room census. I have a workbook attached. I am hoping a formula can get me there. The only variables are if the cell in column E has TO BE CLEANED or READY in it, then I want the formula to overlook that particular cell. I don't want to assign a seat to an empty room! My workbook should make what I am attempting to accomplish much more clear.

Also, there are either 12 or 15 seats available in each van, but the workbook reflects that.

I having trouble with an intermediate step filling of an array based on the input range data and polynomial degree. The values calculated (xsum and xysum) for the array (F in the code) are accurate, but the function returns #VALUE for all elements.

Function poly_fit(ByVal Xdata As Range, Ydata As Range) As Variant Dim a As Integer, b As Integer, c As Integer Dim deg As Integer, num_pt As Integer Dim Xs() As Variant, Ys As Variant Dim F() As Variant, XY() As Variant, coef() As Variant Dim xsum As Variant, xysum As Variant Xs = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(Xdata) Ys = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(Ydata) If UBound(Xs) UBound(Ys) Then MsgBox "You don't have the same number of X's and Y's" End

The number in cell M21 falls into one of the ranges from C4 to C15. A matrix number needs to be printed in each cell from N21 to N30. The selection of the number to be printed in column N (under Matrix Assignment) depends on the range it is next to in array A4:C15. For example (as shown), the correct number for cell N21 is 122 because 0.2626 falls between 0.24 - 0.2699, and Matrix 122 corresponds to that range.

I have two columns one with the variables names and the other with the values now I have to assign vales to teh variables dynamically using the macros and vba code.

When I use customize and assign a macro (to a button) I set the "Marco In" option to "This Workbook" then select a macro from the available list. If you close the Assign Macro dialog and open it again, notice how it appends the name of the file to the macro name. Later, in an automated process the xls filename is appended with a value and I think this is causing the problem because the appended data is static and thus no longer is in sync with the new (latest) filename. How do I assign macro's to either custom toolbar's or autoshapes so that the assignment is tolerant of file name changes? I tried to delete the appended data but it is appended automatically.

I am also curious why some of the macro's listed in the dialog include a filename and macro name delimited with an exclaimation mark and some are macro name only (with no delimiter).

I am working on a Productivity Log and can't figure out a way to count unique values, and also average the time per assignment.

Assignment with the action code A - should take 2 hrs to complete, all other action codes should take 20 minutes.

I need to show how many of each action codes were done for the day, and what was the average time taken to complete each. Even better, how much for A action codes, and how much for all other.

I have been asked to make a formula that sums up the hours in a week and then tells me whether I am below or over the budgeted hours for that week!

I cant get it to work since I cant figure out how to have the same formula in all the cell that sums up early, mid and late shifts, ie 06-14, 14-22, 22-06.

The graveyard shift is a problem there since I get negative hours.

Further more, I need to have the formula ignore cells to be added up if it has letters in it, we write an R for Rostered day off.

Been trying to come up with a formula that I can use in cells to cost a roster. What I want to be able to do is just input start times into cells and the hours worked is automatically costed out in another cell. The trouble I have been having is that different start times attract a shift allowance eg. before 05:00 you get a 20% loading for the whole shift, between 07:00 and 19:00 is 10% and any finishing time after 19:00 is 15%, don't know how to write the formula to do this.

Any non-commercial roster template that would suit 7 day/24 hour/4 person shifts?

Currently we use a totally manual spreadsheet which looks like a Rubik's Cube and does not offer any form of automation in order to speed up entry adn ensure no doubling-up or missing shifts.

I am working on this for two days , but I got stuck on the last step. I have a roster for about 35 employees. Calculating the daily hrs was not a problem. But I am doing the roster for one week. And I want employee wise total of hrs worked. I am quite confused as the "sum" formula works for some totals and for others it does not, although all the cells are in the right format. I tried to change the "result" cell to "number" and multiply by 24 to get the hr total as a number, but it does not work.

for example "SUMIF(E1:E57,"rafik",H1:H57)" ( this is the formula for calculating hrs for "rafik" on monday. the result cell is in "hh:mm" format and gives me the right total.

Likewise upto sunday the totals are right. What I want to do is calculate the total number of hrs from mon to sun. This seems to be impossible. the formula =SUM(H60:AL60) in a dd:mm format does not work, even =SUM(H60:AL60)*24 in a "number format" does not work.

I have tried "excel help" , tried to change the format but nothing works. The result should be 52 hrs and I cant get it no matter what I do.

I manage an emergency response team which consists of around 50 people, made of 5 different teams and these folks need to take part in emergency exercise to keep their skills up. I'm currently building a training/exercise/ roster database in Excel and would like to add a function that tells me who in each team is due to take part in the next exercise. For info: In the actual workbook, I have names defined on the team members and using vlookup to populate the roster via a drop down list.

To explain the attached example; once the person who is at the top of the list (Name1) has done their exercise, they move to the bottom of the list. Then over time, as the others also take part in execises, Name1 is eventually is back at the top of the list the and it is their turn again (this is quite often known as a Squash Ladder, here in the UK). Is there a way I can vba this process via a button or even better (!) by a drop down list?

I would like to know that if i have seat count available according to floor and weekly off are planned according to team, also seat allocations is given floor wise, however i want to know how many seats are available on each floor or any given day.

I have attached excel sheet : Seat Allocation.xlsx

Make an interactive calendar in excel. I would like to have 3 sheets. One were I can enter the names and corresponding reoccurring roster, that would be days on days off, a second sheet that does all the calcs etc and returns days of which all or most of the people are going to have off at the same time, so we can organise things in advance and maybe a third sheet that shows an actual graphical display of this information like a traditional calendar.

I have a roster for a large group in excel and would like to have an easy way to highlight if there are duplicate entries in the roster as we are merging multiple smaller lists together.

I am trying to comeup with an automated excel table that can be used to create a carpark roster.

The carpark has 6 slots for whch I need to roster 9 staff on a weekly rotating basis. This needs to be done in an equitable manner. For example, at the end of a certain period of time, all staff memebers should have had equal chance and on the other hand we shouldnt have instance where a staff member goes two consecutive weeks without a car slot.

I have a workbook where Sheet 1 Col A is a list of dates. Sheet 2 Col A is a relatively short list of constantly changing names. I need to put this list of names in a repeating fashion in Sheet 1 Col B. Ideally I would like for Sheet 1 to regenerate Col B each time the roster list is changed.

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

I'm making my own gradebook (attached) and one of my sheets will list scores for each student in different assignments. I have one sheet which keeps track of all students and all assignments with other info. I would like to program cells in one sheet (the third in the attached file) to lookup a particular student's grade in a particular assignment. I figured trying a LOOKUP with an AND requirement might work but it keeps returning the message "could not find value".

My formula references the student's name and the assignment from the identifying cells so that it is easy to copy and paste. I wondered if it was this which resulted in the error, but doubt it.

i need to work out a formula for my spreadsheet which I use to work out cutting lists for timber frames. I need it to work out if the width of a job is for eg 2400mm i need to work out how many timber studs I need so the space between each stud is between 400mm and 500mm and this will need to work for a range of different sizes of frames. I have it written at the moment and it just devides the width by 400 and gives me a amount of studs but it would work much better if it could space them between 400 & 500.

In a project i am compiling i need to work accurately with times to calculate the work progress of the people in the workshop thus....here goes....

I have in work book #1 (7) sheets mon to fri + complete week + a sheet where all job numbers are collected.

From monday to friday the workmen log their times as a start time and a end time. This has to be then calculated to a total hours:mins spent per job, wich in turn then has to be calculated to a total hours:mins spent per day. And the on the complete week sheet recalculated as a total time worked per week.

i have a made a macro that copies info to a new sheet now that is working great but if i change the name of the work book it wont work any more so i need the macro to work with what ever name i give the workbook

the current name is

AVERAGE PRICE (update 2009) Mimmos Armico 170809.xls
