    Conditional Formatting between a range of two named ranges

    I want to apply formatting to cells based on two named ranges that contain a start and an end date.
    vOffSt and vOffEnd

    I compare those dates as follows to highlight the specific cell that match.
    So... any cell that matches vOffSt is handled and works perfectly with
    =SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(vOffSt,J11)))>0

    cells that match vOffEnd uses
    =SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(vOffSt,J11)))>0

    So if someone takes one day off, the cell highlights perfectly.
    What I need to do is highlight the range of cell's that fall between the vOffst start date and the vOffEnd end date.

    So somehow, I need to check the date in the cell to see if it is >= to the vOffSt date in the named range and if it is <= the vOffEnd date in that named range.
    I've tried to combine the two equations that work as
    =And(j11>=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(vOffSt,J11)))>0, j11<=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(vOffSt,J11)))>0)

    When I do that, it highlights every cell. I can't seem to figure out how to test the value in J11 first and then pass that to t he functions noted above.
    Do I need to change to a vLookup instead of search or something?

    Would appreciate any help.

    Re: Conditional Formatting between a range of two named ranges

    Try this CF rule for the range $J$11:$P$16

    =SUMPRODUCT((vOffSt<=J11)*(vOffEnd>=J11))
    Life's a spreadsheet, Excel!
