folks

I have an excel sheet with a start and end date column(cell b2/c2),

i.e.

10/1/14 and 20/1/14

i would like colums c to az have the weeknumbers as headings

if within the range from columns d to az the start and finish dates are >= start date and <=
end date then can we highlight the respective rows so it gives us a gantt type view as in  a project plan?

keen for your thoughts

See if this is what you want.  I added conditional formatting using this formula starting from column D.

=AND(D$1>=WEEKNUM($B1),D$1<=WEEKNUM($C1))
