Hello,

I work in a school and want to keep track of certain events by date and student. For example if Student A, go on a visit I on say June 1st , I want to caputre that event on an individual calendar and use some conditional formatting on that date in their calendars. All this I can do, BUT as I am collecting the data from another Spreadsheet and the students who have an event are select from either a Drop Down List or a Pivot Table, I cannot figure out how to identify which Students calendar to perform the Conditional Formatting on.

Any suggestions?

Could you please upload a sample EXCEL file WITH sample data, macro, formula , conditional formatting etc on some shared site like https://authentification.site , http://docs.google.com, http://wikisend.com/ , http://www.editgrid.com etc and post back here the link to allow better understanding of how it is now and how you foresee. Based on the sample book, could you re-explain your problem too

I have uploaded a sample workbook.
What I am trying to achieve is if a student appears on a going out form on a specific date then on the Calendar the Conditional Formatting kicks in and ( as show in the example) the visit out code ie Z appears with in Yellow. Other codes appear as different colours

My problem is trying to identify the Students from the Going Out Form who should have a Calendar entry.
