Appointment Scheudling Application

I have a one person business, and need software to manage my appointments with clients. I have spent (wasted) a lot of time investigating different applications that end up having fatal flaws, so I am hoping that someone out there will be familiar with an app that meets a few simple criteria.

Project scheduling software with cascading dates

I need to schedule a lot of sequential tasks that have a set time limit (ie, Task A is allotted one week, Task B one week, Task C three weeks). Unfortunately some of these tasks run over (or occasionally, under) budget on time and I am looking for a program that will easily reassign due dates for all the following tasks when one task falls off the original schedule.

Software/ online app for sports league scheduling?

How to schedule classes efficiently?

New college needs to schedule classes, including required courses and electives. Constraints include (a) requirements as to the total number of hours each class must meet per week, varying as to credit hours awarded (typically entailing 2-5 hours per week) -- but permitting flexibility in terms of number of sessions per week (1-5), what time of day they meet, and so forth; (b) scarce classroom space, of varied room capacity, for classes of varied expected sizes. Instructors not such a big constraint. Seeking advice to pass on about software that optimizes the use of space and maximizes the number of potential class offerings, or kinds of people with background that could be consulted. Cheapness desired -- think of the children! -- but not indispensable. Thanks!

Excel Spreadsheet Updating

Excel query. I have two Excel spreadsheets that I want to have automativally update each other. But, the format that they are in is generally incompatible. These are used as scheduling documents for the place where I work.

One spreadsheet is very wide. It lists each individual person at the top and their personal schedule below it. It lists breaks using "ONE" as the first half of a 30 minute block, "TWO" as the second half of a 30 minute block, and "LONG" as the entire 30 minute block.

The other spreadsheet is much less wide. It has 7 days listed and three columns. One is for "LONG" one is for "ONE" and the third is for "TWO." In each column, each person's name is entered in the appropriate block as defined in the first spreadsheet.

Can I get those two to talk to each other? Can I tell the first spreadsheet that if the word "TWO" is in a certain field to put the name of that person in another field on another spreadsheet?
