    conditional formatting formula, to highlight cells in column b, based on dates in column a

    I'm trying to create a conditional format that highlight cells in column e, when the date in column a, falls within a one year period.

    I created a sumif function to add those amounts:

    =SUMIFS(E14:E78,A14:A78,">"&D8,A14:A78,"<="&D8+365)

    The start date is in cell D8.

    In addition to summing the relevant cells though, I wanted to highlight them as well. However, I've tried inputing variations of the above formula into the worksheet and it's not really working out.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    You could use the AND function for the conditional formatting between the dates.

    cond_format3.xlsx

    hey there, try using this. I find it helpful to test the formula I intend to use first before copying it into the conditional format manager (see data in columns H:L)

    To apply, copy the formula in H14 and then highlight the range you want to conditionally format > select use a formula > paste and edit the format however you like.

    Hope this helps!
