I am trying to create a type of "project to-do list" in Excel.
Each project has essentially the same tasks that need to be accomplished and each task should happen X number of days prior to the project due date.
I would like to be able to type in the project due date and have the required tasks have the "no later than" date assigned. (e.g. Project due date is 03/18/11; task 1 need to be done no later than 6 business days prior. Therefore the no-later than due date for the task should be 03/10/11)
The problem is that weekends and holidays are a problem. Help?!
