    Question How to generating a person specific task list based on a given date and event type

    I have an excel spreadsheet that with individual rows like this:



    Date Event Type Artwork Type Artwork Due Bulletin Entry Post 1 Date Post 1 Content
    25-Dec-15 Fun/Occassional Standard 10-Dec-15 20-Dec-15 15-Dec-15 Short announcement of event

    The first two columns are the only information I fill in. (Event Type is chosen from a drop down). The rest of the information is generated through nested IF formula's.

    The problem is that this is starting to become unwieldy.

    I have been told this could be much better achieved with Access.

    Does anyone know how to do this? I would appreciate the help!

    You'll need to better explain what it is that the Excel is doing and even showing the nested IF might help.
    Explain it as if we don't know what you're doing.

    Hi James,

    Would attaching the excel sheet help?
    Or would an explanation be more helpful?
