turn a cel a color based o todays date

Projected dates left to right drom D5:N5

Actual dates are entered one at a time below projected date as a project
ends in D6:N6

The answer goes in D7:N7

All works fine.

1. If Todays date exceeds Projected date =>1 day
ie: Expected 2/11/09 and Today is 2/12/09

2. I'd like to turn "That Cell" in D6:N6 Blue, (not all cells,) just the
Cell that exceeds the date based on Today. =>1

3. When a date IS entered into a BLUE D6 rows cell, I would like the cell to
look normal, turn the BLUE OFF and show the date entered.


Can this be done?

Select D6:N6 and enter this formula in CF formula field, choose blue pattern!
If you enter a new date in D6 that is <=TODAY(), blue will be switched off.
If you want to switch off blue at ANY new date then it can be done only via a
VBA event sub.

=TODAY()-D6>=1

You could select all the cells that need this conditional formatting and in
the conditional formatting dialog use: Formula Is =D6-TODAY()>=1 and set
required format
I have used D6 here as I assume this in the first cell in the selected range
However, is any cell has a value grater than about 39800 then it could be
mistaken for a date

Thanks Stefi,

I will give it a try,


Don't understand the VBA staement, I'm a newbie!

Can this CF Be included (added to) under a full sheet that has formulas,
without changeing current text/date /headings.

Or does it appear, I just start his new CF at the next new line?

No, I entered a test date which poulated D5:N5

D6 now is 4/25/09 and dates gets higher to the right)
However D6:N6 are all blue.

I would like the cells to remain plain and only to turn BLUE, if the
coorsponding date above D6:N6, exceeds the date above in D5:N5 =>1 from
todays date

I'm sure I didn't say it right.

Thank you for your quick response.

Bernard,

I covered D6:N6

enterd cf
=D6-TODAY()>=1

Populated dates across D5:N5

D5 = 2/7/09 Being that today is 2/9/09
D6 did not change to blue

Any ideas?

Thank you for oferring your time and expertise

Did you enter =D6-TODAY()>=1
in the conditional formatting cell?
Send me a file (remove TRUENORTH.)

Hi,

Why don't you show us some sample data and explain with that what you want
to have happen?

You say the "answer" goes into D7:N7, the answer to what, and what does that
have to do with you process.

You have and Expected Date and a Projected Date what is the difference and
where are they located?

A final point, eventually, when its all clear your formula will look
something like
=TODAY()>D5

You should be highlighting row 6 when you do this.

Thanks Shane.. My superfulous explainations, are because I feel I'm
describing something for a blind person, because I am an amatuer.

When ..If I just state the obvious, usually, I get exactly what I need.
It did turn out to be( for me ) a set of advanced CF's

Bernard, hit them SPOT on.

Mark

And I Thank you for taking your time to deal with guys like me..
