I'm not sure you can do that with icon sets because you need to have the traffic lights in order, green is either at one end or the other.......it can't be in the middle - you could do it with ordinary cell formatting without the "traffic lights" is that any good?

The ability to customize icon sets was added for Excel 2010.  I know that might not help you, but just wanted to let you know.  Without the use of imbedded images and code to handle which one to display, I'm not sure there is a way to do what you want in 07.  I would go with Barry's solution, unless there is some special need for the traffic lights.

Is there a way to collapse the Days of the week (for easier readability as data is added)?

You can Group rows from the Data Ribbon.

I've updated Barry's solution to show an example.
