i have a table of start and stop times for my employees from monday-friday and a table that lists my staffing requirement levels.

i would like to make a graph with the two tables that will display on the "X" axis time in 30 min intervals and on the "Y" axis number of staff

things i think i need to do to get started:

1, figure out how to make a graph that accepts time rang start time and end time that will understand that this means there is 1 employee that should be visible every half hour interval on my graph until there specified finish time is reached.
I believe this will involve some kind of frequency formula that counts the start times against a bin array in one column and the end times in another column and subtracts them therefore leaving me with the number of staff in a room at each 30 minute interval.

Pleas point me in some direction
Thank you

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

I know you are asking questions about smaller parts of this problem in other threads, so this is just FYI.

Problem

Get some ideas on how to do odd things in charts

Solution

Have a look at some "advanced charting" examples.

Take a look at the conditional chart examples on Tushar's site:

there are also a range of good chart examples here:

& in general there's good stuff on all the excel MVP sites:
