Change Worksheet Structure Based on Cell Value?

This is complicated I think.

Basically, its a simplistic sheet to tally 3 variables over the course of a month.

I'm trying to make it alter the structure automatically because I don't want to have to make a new sheet every month.

Drop down menu in cell A1 = Month.
Column A has date (1, 2, 3, 4)
Column B has day (Monday, Tuesday, etc)
B2 uses a value lookup to determine the first day of the month based on month chosen.

This is where it gets sloppy:
B3 uses a value look up (B2 = Monday responds with Tuesday, Tuesday with Wednesday, etc)... Is there a better way to increment days? (Cell value = Monday, something like B2 + 1 doesn't appear to work).

Anyway, the Vlookup method works for that.

Problem is, I would like to add weekly subtotals (Saturday through Friday) in the middle of the sheet.
The location of the subtotal row will change based the date that the month started with...

Does this make sense? Is there an "easy" (non VB) way to do this?

Firstly, to get days, format cell as "ddd". You can then use the b2+1 formula.

How about adding a column with the following formula:
=if(weekday(b10)=6,sum(c4:c10),"")

which will subtotal the last 7 days in column c if the weekday is Friday.

Ah, thanks for the formatting tip, ddd worked well and removed an ugly vlookup.

I had thought about doing the extra column subtotal as you mentioned, had kind of pegged it as a last resort.

Anyone know of a way to force a subtotal row to generate based on the month chosen? That would be the optimal solution =)

Without VBA, I don't see much choice. The other option is to use a fomula to pick up month only (eg =month(a2)) and then do a subtotal via the data menu on that column.

Otherwise, VBA is the way to go, as far as I see it.

I had pretty much figured that without VBA it wouldn't be possible. Was just hoping.

Along a similar track, is it possible to add/remove rows (in a fixed position) based on a cell value?

Thinking it'd be nice if it removed the 29/30/31 rows if Month=February...

Use if formulas:

=if(and(month(a1)=2,day(a1)=29,"",formula here)

or something like that
