Thread: Return a TEXT value if certain TEXT is missing

1. Return a TEXT value if certain TEXT is missing

I really need help with this formula. This is what I'm looking for

I'm writing a schedule but want to make it very automated for the managers. I have the following positions on my schedule: AM 1, AM 2, AM 3, AM 4, PM 1, PM 2 & PM 3. These positions are on everyday. In that specific space sequence. I want the sheet to know if column d9:d23 were missing any of those shifts to automatically return that exact missing shift. I know how to use in conditional formula but don't want color coding just want it to return the missing shift if these are suppose to be all the shifts for 1 day.

Thank you kindly all love this site great help and knowledgeable smart individuals

 shift1 shift2 shift3 missing shift1 shift4 shift2 shift5 shift4 shift5 formula giving missing =IF(COUNTIF(\$D\$4:\$D\$7,I3)=0,"missing","")

what does I3 represent im not understanding this formula

4. Re: Need help..Want to return a TEXT value if certain TEXT is missing

this is the way I lay it out

from D11:D23 there should be 1 of each shift: AM 1, AM 2, AM 3, AM 4, PM 1, PM 2 & PM 3 and the extra spaces are the employees who are off that day. I would like a formula that can tell me what shifts are missing if I'm suppose to have on any giving day the shifts listed above. If those are not here to return the value of the missing shift I tried a few things like a table too with no luck

it is I3 not 13 (the letter after H)

column I is the list of all your shifts

I have been warned not to go offline on problems by the moderators. My example is specific to the cells I chose to put my data in. So change the cell refs to match your data. If still in trouble copy and paste a few rows on here.

These are how the shifts are lined up on a daily basis this is what a daily schedule should read so I would like the formula to know if anyone of these are missing to return that missing shifts pretty much it needs to identify if a day is suppose to consist of all of these shifts and if any is missing return that exact shifts that I still to fill for the day so sorry for delayed response I do appreciate your help. Maybe a table would work for this what do you think I was thinking maybe a table idk.
