Hi I've created a staff rota which i created in Excel.
it has a data validation drop down menu where you select the week and the workers appears on the correct line.

it works well, but i want to take it a step further and include holiday booked.

I'm going to create a second sheet with all dates and people's names (currently A, B, C ...)

eg.
A B C D
13/08/10
14/08/10 x x
15/08/10 x

I want to place an X in the cell whens someone books holiday.

I then want the rota formula to be cross reference the holiday booked sheet
with the date and person on the rota pattern

If the holiday booked sheet has an X in the cell which matches the person's name and date, then the text in the cell will change. ie. "DAY" changes to "LEAVE"

I'm assuming i'll need to use Vlookup and Hlookup along with an IF statement in the the same formula.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.
