hello I want to make a time sheet in excel for the company employees its attached I don't want to create a separate file for each employee then multiple sheets in each file for each month I saw some files online where you create a drop down list for employees then whenever you choose an employee you get his own data in the same sheet is this related to conditional formatting and can only be applied when the changes between employees data are only in formatting? is it related to VLOOKUP? I also want to apply the same concept to years/months so I can stay in the same sheet while viewing the details for all employees for whatever year or month I want thanks

I have 2 sheets containing data. The first sheet is a "map" with bin locations and the second sheet contains a list of products and which bin they belong to, but the locations are separated into 4 columns.("Aisle", "Rack", "Level" and "Bay." Ideally I'd like to see if there's a way to use conditional formatting to highlight a cell on the 1st sheet if the 4 conditions for a location on the second sheet are met. This is what I've tried so far that hasn't worked: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(“6”,Inventory!A2:A1691,1,FALSE)+VLOOKUP(“3”1,Inventory!B2:B1691,2,FALSE)+VLOOKUP(“1”,Inventory!C2:C1691,3,FALSE)+VLOOKUP(“61.1”,Inventory!D2:D1691,4,FALSE),"false") =countif((Inventory!$K:$K=6),(Inventory!$L:$L=31), (Inventory!$M:$M=1), (Inventory!$N:$N=61.1)) Help?

In the B column add a short description of your implementation of the technical requirement. This is required for grading purposes. If these hyperlinks are not added to your workbook it will affect your project grade. Submit your description document and project workbook for grading.

My workbook contains names (first and last) in the columns B8 to B38 on each worksheet. The worksheets are named Day1 to Day31 in the workbook. I am looking for a formula to highlight or isolate all the duplicate names across the workbook. Conditional formatting and Vlookup do not seem to help me much. I am new at excel and would appreciate your help.
