An Excel-based any Year Business Holiday, Training and Absence Planner, featuring Julian Calendar with UK Bank Holidays, ISO Week numbers, Week Days and Dates. The Holiday Planner allows you to plot Holiday Days, Training Days and Absence Days against an unlimited amount of Employees, collating the Monthly statistics into a simple YTD Summary. The Calendar view gives you a detailed view by Employee of all of the Holiday Days, Training Days and Absence Days booked in a Grid format for the selected Year. Full Days Booked are shown as a solid Fill Colour and half-days are shown as shaded. Options allow you to show or hide Bank Holidays and Weekends on the "Calendar" Worksheet or the individual Calendar Month Worksheets. Weekend Days can also be changed, for example, for UAE (United Arab Emirates) "Friday" and "Saturday" can be set as Weekends instead of "Saturday" and "Sunday". They can be displayed on the "Calendar" Worksheet and individual Calendar Month Worksheets

Codes are case insensitive meaning the Workbook interprets upper and lowercase letters as being the same
The Workbook does not use any VBA & the Formulas used are very simple to understand
Holiday Planner can now be used to track 'Absence Hours' or 'Hours Worked' using a Drop-down option on the 'YTD Summary' Worksheet. You can enter any positive or negative Value in any of the Calendar Cells to record the Hours
You can now begin the Calendar in a different Month ie. April. This rotates any Worksheets 'Years' that are not within the current Year to be the next Year ie. April 2016
This means that you can track Holidays, Training Days etc. from April 2016 through to March 2017 - because there is no VBA Code , you will need to manually reorder the Worksheets so that they are in the sequence that you require and all of the Formula will pick up the changes
