Quickly find cells which contain date type values based on criteria in Excel

With the Find and Replace function in Excel, you only can find cells within comments/formulas/values based on a criterion. However, if you want to find cells in date format based on criteria, only the Super Find utility of Kutools for Excel can do you a nice favor. With the Super Find utility, you can search all date cells, or find the cells which contain the specific date in Excel as you need.

I'd like to be able to define a work week and shift (for example, Tuesday through Saturday 6:00 AM to 2:30 PM) and then highlight these rows and be able to do additional searching/sorting once these rows are selected. I'd also like to be able to set a work week that is not a standard 5/2 (5 days on 2 days off) because we deal with 6/3 work weeks as well. So, if we could define what a "workday" is that would be great.
