Hi Experts

I am creating a project tracking database which will track multiple projects (from when we get wind of them through go live to completion).  Each project will have multiple resources (people) working on it and each week I need to be able to assign the number of days each person is to work on each project (the excel attachment shows and excel example of how this would need to be updated Allocation.xlsx). I also need to track the overall days spent by anyone on an individual project.

Can anyone provide any advice or an example of how I need to tie up the tables (presumably 1 main projects table and either one or more resources table & potentially a tabel to track the weekly allocation of resources).

Also how & where I tie in the dates (ie week commencing 26 April 2021) - ideally this need to be perpetual (i.e. automatically add in new dates up to 12 weeks out)
