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


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
