Hello there Expert Exchange community,

---Wanted to have any assign task with dates that are from the "L" column on the second box that is located on the page called (SHEET 1)
---Please have all of the task shown in groups of color ( for example; if i have task for today shown on the (GENERAL SHEET)
1 yellow
2 red
1 blue
1 green
1 yellow
1 green

Have them appear  All Green being on top of all color then all red, then all blue and last all yellow.

2 green
2 red
1 blue
2 yellow

Same theory with the Tomorrow and Future Days group.

Second box will be displaying all task that have the task in three separate rows.  


****TODAY***** = Only task that are schedule for today.

****TOMORROW**** = Next day

****FUTURE DAYS****  = Days that does not includes today or tomorrow but task that are assign in two days from now and further on.

The workbook you attached has just the GENERAL worksheet. The other two are missing.

I'd like to use a feature that is only available in Excel 2010 and later. Is that a problem?

I've run into a problem and that is that while I can manually color a part of a shape, I need to find out how to do it programmatically.

is it possible Marty to have the (NUMBER BUTTON) to when there is a color used for a task have the title of the color input to column "O" for example on task on date "10/31/16 WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TASK"

It to displaying in "RED" to help it differentiate it from the total of four color have it input in column "O" word (RED)

When the second box located in (TO DO SUMMARY) have it go through first as a bridge to the "O" column find the color it will be display and get the rest of information of the due date and task name.

Try the attached. The list shows up when you refresh. Currently it's a little slow because I'm looking at the data on the GENERAL sheet 8 times (2 periods x 4 colors = 8). I may be able to speed it up but I want to make sure that what I've done so far is what you want.

I changed the color of one of the shapes so that the blue todo's can be read.
