Calculating shift patterns (Sorry can't be more specific)

I really hope that someone can help me. I'm at the end of my wits tryin
to work this one out. 

I have a time sheet

M T W T F S S (ETC for 3 months)

E Shifts
M Shifts
L shifts
O (Off) 

I want a formula that could help calculate how many people are on 
certain shift on each day.  

So, E shifts for M = 3, for instance, so that each time I add a shif
it automatically calculates the number at the bottom. 

Also and I know this is cheeky...but does anyone know how I can tall
how many L shifts someone does in month etc. To keep an automati

I would be most grateful if anyone can help with this

The formula  =countif(A1:A100,"E") will count how many times the entr
E occurs in the range A1:A100.

The same countif approach will work within a row (for an individua
person) but you will need to be more precise as to how you are definin
periods and whether you want it to be rolling, fixed months, four week
or what.

Processing a specific user message during a non UI function
In my MFC application if a data item is added, a user defined message is posted to update a map. I've written a new feature which imports data in a single thread, ignoring all windows messages until the end. This is necessary otherwise the user could continue using the UI and probably crash the program. However I now realise that I need to process the user defined message during the import, but ignore the other messages or the things can get out of sync. I've looked at PeekMessage & PumpMessage, but they seems to be wasteful of resources and tricky to target at a specific m...

Can't eliminate flicking of chart on every calculate #2
I am using Excel 2002. I have real time data being charted , and I manually calculate ranges and sheets as needed. This is not a problem. I have recently added charts to plot this data. Every time there is a recalculation anywhere on the sheet (even areas not being charted) the charts flicker. Since there is new data multiple times per second , this is a problem. Yes, I know about Application.DisplayAlerts = False, and tried inserting that before EVERY calculation call. I even went so far as to use the LockWindowUpdate api call, which freezes the entire app. Unfortunatel...

Referencing a "calculated" column
Within a query, I created a column based on a fairly complex calculation referencing a number of fields in the database and a number of fields in the form that uses the query (this query is behind a ListBox on that form). I've given the "created" column a name (let's call it XYZ). The result is fine in that the content of that column in the ListBox is correct. I now want to reference the contents of that column in a second "calculated" column (further to the right, and beyond what appears in the ListBox). This second column contains a couple of IIf 's a...

How do I calculate duration between two dates and times in excel?
I need to calculate the difference in hours between two dates and times. For example the difference in hours between 11:25 on 23/07/2004 and 18:00 on 06/08/2004? The dates and times have already been determined by the start and end of a particular event. Thanks, Let's say the 23/07/2004 date is in A1 and the 06/08/2004 date is in B1 C1 =(B1-A1)*24 gets time in hours. Ensure that C1 is formatted to say NUMBER with 2 decimal places.

Hard to explain, but specific e-mail causing problems for my clien
I don't know how to explain this or label it, but let me do my best. This week, about half my users are experiencing weird errors with Outlook when they first get in. What happens is that their Outlook stops responding when they check their email and it only happens when they first get in in the morning. I've been trying to figure out what is going on and it has been difficult. However, I might have found something that could be causing the problems. We are a mortgage company and every morning, a person in our operations department sends out 3 Rate sheets in .pdf format. They ...

Create task with a specific due date from workflow?
I have a user defined field on an opportunity, lets call that "Estimated Required Date".

Shift and number
Hi, This started happening while I was working in Excel 2000, I tried to use the equal sign "=" in a formula and instead of getting the equal sign I was getting Pts instead. And the ")" was giving me something different. This only happens in Excel. Anybody has had this problem? Thanks Hello No idea why this should happen in Excel. But you can take advantage of Excel's CODE and CHAR functions. If A1 contains "=" then Code(A1) returns 61. To enter an equals sign from the keyboard, Hols down the ALT key and using the number pad type "61" then...

Stopping Excel macro pattern recgonition
Hi all, I have an Excel spreadsheet with a macro that I use to load data into a third party program. The problem is that when the macro runs after a couple of repetitions, it recognises a pattern and loads all of the data from the spreadsheet and then tries to dump it into the third party program. The macro then starts to go through at high speeds, not giving itself time to do the tabbing and alt-tab between buttons/programs. Is there some way to cripple the pattern recognition function in the macros? I am using the sendkeys function. Macros don't start 'recognising patterns...
