Rotating Shift Pattern

Rotating Shift Pattern

Rotating Shift Pattern

Hi I'm a newbie here, hopefully I've posted this question in the right place...if not I apologise.

How can I incorporate a rotating shift pattern in to MS Access. I work on a 4 week rotating shift pattern (see below), I work week 1 -4 , then start again. I'm also on A shift (there ar 3 other shifts B-D). When A shift is on week 1, B is on Week 2, C is on week 3 and D is on week 4.

M T W T F S S -(Weekdays)
             N N N  -(Week 1)    N = Nights
N           D D D  -(Week 2)    D = days
    N N N          - (Week 3)
D D D D            -(Week 4)

(Hopefully - it's aligned correctly)

I need to incorporate this into a database so I can create a tool for personnel on each shift to book time off for any day they are working.

The idea being that, the user selects a date and the database automatically calls shows the shift personnel on the appropiate shift fo that day.

How can I accomplish this (the rotating shift part)in an access database.

Thanks in advance
