Do you want the cells just highlighted or do you want a value populated in the fields in the relevant days?

If just a value, what value? The following will put "X" where relevant:

=IF(AND(VLOOKUP($C4,Sheet2!$I:$K,2,FALSE)<=E$3,VLOOKUP($C4,Sheet2!$I:$K,3,FALSE)>=E$3),"X","")

If you just need highlighting then you can use this formula in conditional formatting:

=AND(VLOOKUP($C4,Sheet2!$I:$K,2,FALSE)<=E$3,VLOOKUP($C4,Sheet2!$I:$K,3,FALSE)>=E$3)

Thanks

Hold fire, doesn't work with Resource 2 because of multiple lines. I will take another look.

With another look, Resource 2 is being allocated to two jobs, Job 2 from 14 to 16 Nov and Job 3 from 11 to 16 Nov; is this a clash of Resource allocation? Would this happen in reality or is it just sample data.

I assume however, if Resource 2 were then reallocated to lets say 18 to 23 Nov for Job 3 you would expect the chart to update to the relevant days.

Updated formula, start in E4 and then drag right and down:

=COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$I:$I,$C4,Sheet2!$J:$J,"<="&E$3,Sheet2!$K:$K,">="&E$3)

This will put the count of occurrences that match the dates. You can then use different conditional formatting to highlight where you have overlapping allocations.

Hi Rob H,
Basically needs to be highlighted.
However, the count of occurrences will be an very good idea which further can be done with highlighter.
""=COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$I:$I,$C4,Sheet2!$J:$J,"<="&E$3,Sheet2!$K:$K,">="&E$3)""

Thanks,
Shail

Glad to help, see your file uploaded below with conditional formatting applied; green highlight shows 1 allocation, red highlight shows more than 1 allocation.

The formula can be deleted from the cells if so required.
