    How to use a formula to determine which cells to format?

    Hi,

    I know that I should use conditional formatting but I dont know which formula I should use in conditional formatting to highlight the cells on the basis of few conditions.

    My conditions are:-

    If the date is less then today date, then make this cell RED.

    If the date is greater then today date, then make this cell Green.

    Thanks

    Select cell

    Conditional Formatting
    New Rule
    Use a formula to determine...

    =(A1<TODAY())
    format as Red

    =(A1>TODAY())
    format as Green

    You didnt specifiy = to today, adjust as necessary

    Use Format painter (paintbrush icon) to copy to any other cells

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.
