Multiple Arguments

I am trying to restore a template that an employee typed over the fomulas. The creator of the document no longer is employed with us, and since I know very little about excel, I hope someone can help me with this. I was able to get the formula to work in some of the columns but others don't work. On Column G & H this person has three days of instead of two so I tried to enter a third augument in the formula, but that does not work. On the documents that were not password protected I found two different ways the days of the month are populated Column B & C. The swings tab is the easies to change but it gives an #value error. The days tab works but if the user does not understand excel fairly well they may have a hard time updating the form each month, and again some of the column are not reading the formula. Hope this all make since.

    I think this is what you are trying to do, Correct me if I am wrong?

    Copy the cells C6 to C36 from Sheet "MJ - Days" and paste it in C6 to C36 in Sheet "MJ - Swings".

    Once you do that the values will correctly populate.

    See sample attached.

    Is this what you wanted?

    Found the problem to be the type of data.It was entered as text instead of a number.
