I am trying to build a quote system for a printing business. I have 2 sizes of paper, 4 color choices, and 4 price ranges (price changes depends on total quantity ordered). I want to create a simple quote builder where I can select my options on drop down menus, then it will pull the correct price. I don't think this is very hard, but I'm not sure what formulas/functions to use or how to best set up my data table. Someone built me the attached one, but I changed the prices and deleted the paper weight option. The new prices are on the tab marked CLIENT PROVIDING PAPER.

I'm creating a timeline for projects and want to use a formula to create a gantt chart that adds prep days before the event and connects to a color coded legend. The person working on my problem a few minutes ago sent me a work in progress file before we were disconnected, which is attached here. This is what still needs to be done: 1. Date of event should be part of the bar. 2. Replace horizontal lines in Event area. 3. Fix the header and red lines on the sides of column AA. 4. Set up so bars are automatically color coded to the legend (which refers to Dept in the event list).
