I have a number of different rosters. 1 is a 4 on, 4 off roster, another 5 on, 2 off, and a third 4 on, 3 off.

Given a date I need to find out what day into the roster is that date. The roster will start on a given date. I thought I could use MOD but my answers done seem to come out right. For the 4x4 roster I tried (in english)

MOD(thisDay - startDay,8) which should give me a 1-8 result I was hoping.

Any hints on how to get this working that will work for the MOD being 5, 7 or 8

Thanks.

Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney
Hate that. Just after posting work it out. Was not taking into account a 0 result which would be the 8. An IF statement to check for 0 and return the MOD value soon fixed it.
