    Basing Conditional Formatting on formulas for TRUE values from multiple cells

    I have two problems with conditional formatting:

    1) I need a cell in Column B to turn red if the same row cell in Column A has text in it and Column B does not
    a) I don't know how to refer to an entire column in a formula
    b) I don't know how to refer to a blank cell as a value
    c) I don't know how to refer to two conditions in the formula; ie not sure how to have both conditions required TRUE for formatting

    2) I need a cell in Column D to turn red if it is still empty more than 5 days past the date in Column C
    a) same issues - but also not sure how to add 5 days as a condition to the formula

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated
