    Need Help with Conditional Formatting Based on Two Conditions

    Hi All:

    I'm in desperate need of help with conditional formatting in a spreadsheet containing projected and actual dates for various medical procedures.

    For example:

    A B C
    1 Patient Procedure X Projected Date Procedure X Actual Date
    2 Patient A 01/04/2015 01/04/2015
    3 Patient B 01/12/2015
    4 Patient C 01/15/2015
    5 Patient D 01/15/2015 01/15/2015
    6 Patient E
    7 Patient F 01/23/2015 01/25/2015
    8 Patient G 01/23/2015
    9 Patient H 01/26/2015 02/05/2015
    10 Patient I 01/29/2015
    11 Patient J 01/31/2015

    I need the projected dates in column B to turn RED/BOLDED/ITALICIZED whenever the projected date has passed ($B<TODAY ???) AND there is no actual date listed in column C (IFBLANK($C) ???).

    Could someone please tell me what formula would work to orchestrate such and to which cells the formula needs to be applied? I'm a "formula novice", so I may need it spelled out for me.

    Many thanks, in advance, for your help with this. Ted.

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    It's always easier top offer help if you provide a sample workbook, but try something like this...

    1. highlight the range you want to apply the conditional formatting to
    2. on the home tab, styles, select CF
    3. select new rule, select use formula
    4. enter =B1>today format fill as needed

    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    How do I post a sample workbook? I clicked on the table icon and it posted jibberish... I'm not clear on how to use the IF function

    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

    Sample Spreadsheet for Excel Forum.xlsx

    In the sample worksheet... I need the projected dates in columns F, H, J, L, N, P and R to turn red, bold and italicized, if the date has passed and there is no actual date listed in columns G, I, K, M, O, Q and S.

    Thanks for your help. Ted.

    OK apart from references and testing for the adjacent cell being empty (I missed that part), I was pretty much there.

    TRy this in column F, using the instructions given in post #2...
    =AND(G2="",F2>TODAY()) Format fill as required

    Then copy/paste formats to the other columns
