Make spread sheet to show marked dates

Hi I have a spread sheet which was working fine but now stopped or something is changed.

What i want is

I have Make project which will have timescale
then
sub task which will have its own timeline
then
tasks under subtasks which will have time/date to finish.

What i want is when i put the time the boxes in calender side should fill up with colors to represent tasks category.

I have attached the spreadsheet which will explain more details.
Thank you for your help.

What do you mean when you say "I have Make project"?

Should there be any VBA/macro code in the workbook?

Hi


1. When i put the date in Workstream which Startdate and Enddate the calendar should start from that month and date so for example if i put 06/08/2015 then calendar first column should be 06 AUG and then go to what every it can accomodate to it right till december 2015 maybe.
Cell I11 and J11 if you put date in there nothing will happen.


2. When i put activity this should color the corresponding date to blue color
3. when i put date for Task it should correspond to green color.

Do you want something to happen? If you want a color to appear for that row in the calendar, what color should it be?

Does the attached workbook do what you want?

To add the black color:
1.    Select any cell in the calendar
2.    Go to Home->Conditional Formatting->Manage Rules
3.    Select one of the existing two rules
4.    Select 'Edit Rule'
5.    Copy the formula
6.    Click 'Cancel'
7.    Click 'New Rule'
8.    Select 'Use a formula...'
9.    Paste the copied formula into the 'Format values where...' box.
10.    I used the "$C11" portion of the formula to determine if we are looking at an activity or a task. To determine if it's a Workstream I think you'll need to look at column B rather than C, so use =AND($I11<=J$10,$J11>=I$10,$B11<>"")
11.    Click the 'Format...' button
12.    Select the 'Fill' tab and choose the black color
13.    Click 'OK"
14.    Click 'OK'
15.    Copy one of the other 'Applies To' formulas to the new rule so that it says "=$I$11:$IT$98"
16.    Click 'OK'

Note: Since the Workflow date range (at least on my version of the workbook) is August you'll need to scroll to that part of the calendar to see the results.
