    Date to Calendar

    Hello.

    I'm having a struggle to find a way to sort out my problem. If you could clarify I would be seriously appreciated.

    I have an excel sheet where the whole column A and B are blank, and starting on column C and forwards I have a year calendar.

    So far so good.

    What I'm trying to find out is the right formula to:

    write manually a date on one of the cells in Column A or B and the calendar automatically recognises that cell and highlights the date on the calendar.

    I'm sorry if you don't understand I'm trying my best.

    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Hello RLory,

    you can do that with conditional formatting. Select all the cells of your calendar, then set a conditional format with Formula is and enter the formula

    =OR(C1=$A$1,C1=$B$1)

    Then select a format for the cells.

    This assumes that your calendar starts in C1 and the dates you enter will be in A1 or B1.

    If that does not help, please post a sample workbook, so we don't have to guess your spreadsheet layout.
