Date Model Worksheet part Tres

Bright01 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have this workbook/sheet that was created by EE Professionals that I'm now looking for another enhancement to.

Overview:  This Sheet is part of a model to help with scheduling but is not intended to be a replacement for MS Project.  When you pick a date horizon (Start/End) it auto sets the model up.  The next step here is to add in Tasks.  There are 3 types of tasks (Parallel (P), Critical (C) and Milestone (M) - The Milestone must be a single date.

What I'm looking for:  I'm looking for a way to have a macro or formula (since the sheet is dynamic (it can expand or contract), I think a macro may be a better way to go, take a task and the identified "type" and set it in the appropriate color and space based on the date.  Mocked up version attached.

Much thanks in advance,
