    Default Increment second columns based on names in the first column

    I can't seen to get a formula to work in column E starting in Row 2. In column B, there are names, and if this person worked on example, 1-Jan-17 date, they also work 3 days later on 4-Jan-17 and so on.

    You can see there are potentially more dates in column A which make column D not the same. So for example, Person 5 on 29-Jan-17 is on duty for 1-Feb-17 so row 6 in column E should be skipped and then Person 5 shows up on row 7.

    Try placing the following formula in cell E2 and drag-copying it down as needed:

    =IF(D2="","",IF(B2="",B1,B2))

    Thank you very much. This works good. I over complicated it and eventually came up with =IF(N(D2),IF(AND(A2="",N(A1),N(D2)),B1,B2),"")

    Still not as compact as your suggestion.
