# Relative formula problems

Hello

Forgive me if this is a silly question -I feel the answer should be straightforward, but can't work it out.

I'm linking cells from one sheet to another - basically to see what's happening every day of the year. In the source document, there are loads of columns - the only two I'm concerned with are the date column and the second column, which shows what's scheduled to happen on that day.

In the new document, I want to create a calendar with columns being Sunday - Monday.
b2 = '[source.xls]b278. d2 = '[source.xls] b279.......... o2 ='[source.xls]b284
b3 = '[source.xls]b285
Effectively, when I copy the formula downwards, I want excel to look at the cell seven below the source for the one above it, but I can't work out how to do it.

I hope this makes sense!!!
Any help will be gratefully appreciated
Phillip

### Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.
Something like this, copied down?

=INDEX( '[source.xls]Sheet1'!\$b\$278:\$B\$300,7*(ROWS(\$A\$1:A1)-1)+1)

where B278:B300 houses the whole list....adjust range as necessary

Note: I inserted a default sheet name....you may need to revise

If you mean to copy from B every other cell to N, then down try -

=INDEX(Sheet2!\$1:\$65536,(ROW(B2)-2)*7+277+COLUMN()/2,2)
