I want to use a function that will input the number 3 if a work center shift 1 and 2 occurs on the same from date. Also, If the condition is met, I only want to put it on the row where it first ocured.

Please see attached example worksheet.

+ I also have a part two that I need help with if any of you have conditional formatting experience.

Thanks in advance.

Is there anyway to not include duplicates within this function?  For instance, if I have the following date ranges:

WrkCntr  From Date    To date    Shift    DupShift
2500        5/18/12        5/19/12   1  
21300      6/4/12          6/4/12     1             3
21300      6/4/12          6/5/12     2

So the calendar will be setup: With Red color for 6/4/12 and then blue color for 6/5/12/  Notice Shift 1 and two are scheduled for the same day 6/4/12 only.  Please refer to the excel sheet                

=IF(COUNTIFS(F:F,F2,B:B,B2)>1,3,"")

Worked perfectly.  Thanks.

Please don't forget there is a part two under the conditional formatting section.


Thanks again.
