the above table is a small sample of a much bigger table.
I would like to have a formula that answers these questions.. ( they are just examples of dates , i hope to be able to use any date in the year)

Is smith on leave on the 10/12/14 ? True
Is Paul on leave on 3/9/14 ? True
Is bob on leave on 10/12/14 ? false

Your help would be appreciated.

Hello

If you put the table in A1:D10, the name in cell G1 and the date in cell H1, this works:

=SUM((A2:A10=G1)*(B2:B10+D2:D10<=H1)*(C2:C10+D2:D10>=H1))>0

You need to press Ctrl-Shif-Enter instead of Enter, to confirm the formula. It's an array formula.
