with a custom number format of dddd. Another way is to use the function

A range name cannot have spaces, maybe that's your problem. Name your range

Let me first explain my problem. I have a booking form used by renters who

The cost is dependent on the month so there are 4 price bands. So they could

I have used this forum in the past to get a couple of formulas to do most of
the calculations, but as i don`t really understand the formulas when changes
are required its a no go area for me other than the yearly price increase, I

Copy-Paste-Special lets you do some useful things in Excel.
But there's no quick & easy way to "clone" a cell and make an exact
duplicate of it. Often I do this either because a given cell is a
good starting point for a different calculation.
The workarounds work, but, like workarounds, they kinda stink. For
example, you can edit the formula, put a quote in front of it & turn
it into a string, then copy it to wherever you need it, and then
finally edit it (and the original) back to formula. Or, you can use
absolute references in the formula and then copy the formula....DestroyWindow ASSERT problem....strange, strange!
