I have a group of cells in a column that I would like to "format" individualy/independantly of one another and worksheet date (seperate cell to drive other functions) to change colors (the entire cell) red, yellow, green based on the number of days elapsed from the date in the cell NOT the date on the worksheet. For example cells D52 through D61 all contain different dates. I would like the cell to fill (based on their dates) green if it is greater than ten days from the date in the cell, than yellow if it is the tenth day from the date in the cell and red if it is greater than 10 days from the date in the cell. Is this possible? I 've been scrubbing numerous sites and such and "googling"- no luck. If so, It just wasn't dumbed down enough for me to comprehend. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
