I have data that is to be entered into the 'New Sheet' worksheet of the attahed file. What i have at the moment is when you type in the site name it creats a copy of thetemplate with the site name entered into cell H3. what i would also like it to do is enter the Start date into 'J6' and the week number into cell 'N6' of the copied template. Is it also possible to add a column inbetween B & C of the template that will then show the week commencing date next to each employee name without messing all the code up?

Thats nearly there but i did have a macro that would automatically work out the week start date from the commencment date that would be entered. Also is it possible to have the week commencing date auto to c11:c123??

Hi,
I have added a Select Case statement, depending on the Start Date, it will calculate the Week Commencing Date. I have assumed here that your week begins on a Monday, if it is something other, let me know and I can change the code to suit.
You could also use the Weeknum formula in column D of the New Sheet, rather than the formula you have in. I have shown the formula in cell E2.
When you enter the Start Date, it will then add the sheet.

Hi,
Sorry, there is a line of code;
ActiveSheet.Range("B11:B123").Value = dWeekComm
Can you change it to:
ActiveSheet.Range("C11:C123").Value = dWeekComm

Hi carlandrewlewis,

I have added a few things to your template, just cosmetic for appearance, so that all of the value errors and zero values will not show. I also added conditional formatting in column C of the Template so that the text will be white unless there is a name in column D.
