On the attached .xls I would like to build a macro which shows me on sheet 2, 6 months in advance who will be off, but necer show previous dates.  The columns in sheet 2 should show the following:

1.  Date = 1-999 which dates are coming up first at the top.
2.  Day = Monday/Tuesday etc.
3.  Time off should pull the data from sheet 1 to show how long they are off for i.e. 1 day .5 day etc.
4.  The staff names = Just put the word 'Yes' in the row under the member of staff it corresponds to.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The attached file works as you have requested.  To update the summary sheet, just run the macro CreateSummaryForecast.

I would have added a button to click to be able to do this... but embarrassingly I still haven't worked out how to add buttons to worksheets using Excel 2007...

Go to Excel options and enable 'Show Developer tab in Ribbon' no the Popular page. You can add controls from there.

Also only need to see dates after current date i.e. today I would not expect to see anything from before 20/06/08

Oh, yes, forgot about current date.  Will adjust.

Jaffa0's comment was to me, I think, re. Excel 2007.  Will try that... thanks!!

The ribbon thing worked great - thanks Jaffa0, I've been wondering about that for ages!  Though I did still forget to add the button, I've just realised.

Amended code attached that only shows dates yet to occur.

If the line is in yellow, you are in break mode for some reason.  Did you receive an error or something?  Shouldn't be in break mode unless you press <CTRL><BREAK>

Ok, I've amended the sort code.  There were changes made to VBA with regards to the sort between earlier versions of Excel and 2007.  I have rewritten it so that it should be compatible now.
