Hi All,

Need help from the smart lads.

Goal: Gross Profit Forecast for the year 2021
Tricky Part: I need to identify based on his "start date" and "working pattern", I need a formula for "# of days working" column to identify how many days he has worked during the month.

Example given:

1. Employee 1 started on January 1,2021
2. His work type is 14 days on and 7 days off
3. January has 31 days, so 14 on + 7 off = 21
4. To finish 1 month cycle, he worked another 10 days hence row January in Column # of days is 24.
5. Gross column profit is 24 days * base rate = \$3,480

I would like to know the formula for "# of days working" column to automatically identify how many days he's worked based on given data (start date and work pattern) all the way from January to December.
