I'm trying to create a spreadsheet to keep track of attendance points at work. First of all let me explain my companies attendance policy. We have a no fault attendance points system. If you are late for work or leave early under 30 min you get 1 point. If between 30 min-2 hrs, 2 points and a call off or late/leave over 2 hrs is 3 points. After every 30 days of no occurances 2 points are subtracted from your total. And if you go 6 months with no occurances you get what is called a "good attendance credit" which means if you have an occurance, you don't get any points for it.

I've created a generic spreadsheet (which I have uploaded here) of how i want to keep track of it, I plan to use a worksheet for each employee on my shift. Though if if I do get this together, I do know a few other people who would like to use it for their employees as well.

My biggest problem is in the F column. Is there a way to set it so that If row A-E is null that there is no value input for F? I don't like how the total goes all the way down the page, and it will confuse some of the less computer savvy people when I'm trying to counsel them on attendance. Also is there a way to autopopulat the point totals? So if "Call Off" is selected in column C that "3" is populated in column D?

Thanks in advance for your help. Also if you have any other suggestions please let me know.

I have the logic down i'm just not sure how to implement...

*If D16 is null then F16 is null (but stiil keep the sum function)
*If C9 = "Call Off" then D9 = 3 and so on and so forth
*If B16 is < 6 mo then D16 = 0,
* F cannot be > 0
*If B16 greater than or equal to 30 days C23 = Drop Off
