Ive put together a spreadsheet for work, where we have a main page called roster, the whole weekly roster for all staff members goes onto that sheet. We have about 30 staff.
Ive made every staff member their own weekly sheet which has only their own roster automatically copied from the main roster sheet.
How ive done this so far is just using simple =Roster!B3 , =Roster!B4 , =Roster!B5 etc
So monday am on dave's weekly sheet looks at cell b3 on the main roster sheet tuesday looks at b4 , etc
It is working but we keep getting glitches and mistakes. The boss actually does the roster and he isnt that computer savvy so i need this to just work with no errors or glitches.
Im just looking for an easier more reliable way to do this. If the roster comes out with a mistake on one of the staff members weekly sheets because something went wrong somewhere ,, they might not turn up and the proverbial hits the fan.
Any advice would be appreciated
Roster with each person getting their own weekly sheet printed
Im looking for each staff members weekly roster to be copied from the main roster sheet, which is huge, into their own personal sheet.
Each staff members weekly sheet will then be printed and handed out.
Last week for example, Jon's weekly sheet came out with someone else's shifts on it. I dont know how, i tested everybody's weekly sheet before i gave it to the boss to make sure everybody's weekly sheet was getting the info from the right section of the roster. But somehow, after the boss was finished, it was wrong.
If the boss cut's n paste's into the roster, those entries wont show up on the weekly sheets, they just show up as #ref. If he copy's n paste's its all fine.
Glitches and errors just keep happening. Im not sure how to stop it. So im looking for another way.
