Afternoon All,


Just wanna say hey before I start ranting :)


I've got a question for you guys. I've been racking my brains on it for quite some time.

Basically I'm needing a formula that some how takes a list of data, in this case names and outputs them into a specific cell, easy enough right? Simple Vlookup, but no. I'm needing these names to be output on relevant dates, in this case weekly.

Sort of a rotation type bases, it needs to go through these names (There are 6) and output all six before starting again.


Like I said, its a bit of an **** and its causing me no end of trouble.


Any Help is greatly appreciated
 

Excel Facts

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Something like this, perhaps?

Each week, it will rotate to the next person, then start at the top...
Code:
=INDEX(H10:H15,MOD(INT((NOW()-DATE(YEAR(NOW()),1,1))/7),COUNTA(H10:H15))+1)
... you can replace now() with a cell, and then try a whole bunch of dates to see how it works...

Glad it satisfies... I was afraid you might be looking for a RANDOM weekly assignment without repeating... that would have been tougher...
