    Conditional Formatting Time Limit / Due Date

    Hi

    I would like to create conditional formatting rules for a matrix i am completing.

    The conditional formatting would require that:

    if a due date falls 28 days or less from todays date - Green Highlight

    If a due date falls 9 days or less from todays date - Orange Highlight

    If a due date falls On todays date or todays date has passed - Red Highlight.

    I also then need a rule that will ignore all three of these rules and change the cell to a different colour if a completion date is entered in a different cell.

    I hope someone can help me with this.

    Thank you in advance

    Screenshot (2).png

    Im really sorry but for some reason the attachment link wont let me post a sample workbook so the best i can do is attach a screenshot

    I will try to explain best i can.

    One Row for due dates

    One row for actual completion dates

    The completion row is already complete and doesnt need formatting.

    The blue box is the start of the matrix and doesn't need work also. I have programmed the form that the next due date automatically populates 28 days after the last completion date. As you can see here D3 is 28 days after C4.

    When a completion date is entered in D4, E3 will populate etc.

    That is when i need the colour formatting rules to begin in the due dates.

    Sorry i cannot post a workbook as the attachment button does not do anything

    No, the attachment icon doesn't work. Follow the instructions in the yellow banner at the top of every screen.

    Re: Conditional Formatting Time Limit / Due Date

    Hello Wilkinson921 and Welcome to Excel Forum.
    Perhaps this will help:
    The rule for blue (completion date is entered) is: =ISNUMBER(C4)
    The rule for red is: =C3<=TODAY()
    The rule for orange is: =C3-9<=TODAY()
    The rule for green is: =C3-28<=TODAY()
    Note that the blue rule needs to be first to have priority.
    Note that all rules are applied to C3:I3
    Let us know if you have any questions.
