    2 issues: Conditional formatting formula & Counting between values with date and T/F

    Ok, I have two issues.

    First, I didn't realize I could do conditional formatting based on a true formula. What I would like is a formula that highlights dates in E:E a certain color, say red, if they are within range B3 to B3+15 and the information in T:T is FALSE.

    Second issue... a tad more complicated.

    I have a formula that counts the number of times a serial number shows up on a report, but my formula doesn't count a formula twice if it appears. So I need some help, if anyone would be so kind

    a b c d e
    1 S/N date CMPLTD start: 1/1/2011
    2 100 1/2/2011 TRUE end: 2/1/2011
    3 101 1/4/2011 TRUE

    4 102 1/6/2011 TRUE

    5 103 1/6/2011 TRUE

    6 104 1/7/2011 FALSE

    7 105 1/8/2011 FALSE

    8 100 1/10/2011 TRUE

    9 106 2/1/2011 FALSE

    What I'm trying to achieve is to count the number of cells in column A if the date in columb B is within the criteria of E1 and E2, and the CMPLTD column is TRUE.

    The current formula I use only counts the unique values:

    Re: 2 issues: Conditional formatting formula & Counting between values with date and

    Assuming the 2 issues are for data in 2 different areas because they don't both reference the same data it seems, then:

    Issue 1: Select column E and go to Format|Conditional Formatting and select Formula Is from the drop down. Then enter formula: =AND($E1>=$B$3,$E1<=$B$3+15,$T1=FALSE) where it is assumed you picked entire column E. Click Format and choose from Pattern tab.

    Issue 2:

    where C1:C100 represents the CMPLTD column. Note, with Sumproduct you cannot use whole column references in XL2003 and you should keep ranges to a minimum size.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
