How to auto insert dates based on selection of drop down menu

Postby Oculi83 » Thu Nov 03, 2016 3:48 am

Hello,

I'm clearly not an expert when it comes to Excel so, I'd appreciate if anyone could help me out with this.

I'm trying to come up with a drop-down menu containing different options (obviously) and when selecting either one of these options a list of dates will show up. So, let's say I select option A, then certain rows in my Excel document will automatically be filled with the dates of all Sundays of a specific month. If I select option B, the dates of all Saturdays of a specific month will appear. I have a different tab for each month of the year so, the formula can be adapted accordingly.

I hope you all understand what I mean. Is this doable? :?

Hello Oculi, There are a few different ways you can go varying from extremely easy to much more complex depending on how you sheets are laid out.
Can you supply a sample sheet showing how your calendar is set up please?
Also, do you just want a list of dates (either Sat or Sun) or do you want those dates highlighted within your calendar as well?

Hello sir.
i think the following will address your issue

Cell A1 have a list of Months
if A1 = Jan-17
Then COlomn D will display list of saturdays
D5, copy this formula =IF(WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1)=7,EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1,EOMONTH(A1,-1)+(8 + MOD(7,7))-WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1))

THen in D6 add 7 to D5, and so on for all saturdays
Similarly in Colomn E will display all sundays
E5 copy this formula, =IF(WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1)=1,EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1,EOMONTH(A1,-1)+(8 + MOD(1,7))-WEEKDAY(EOMONTH(A1,-1)+1))

THen add 7 tp E5 in E6, and so on till you have list of all sundays

I think this is the solution for your issue
