    have a pop-up message when the conditional formatting for any cell in range is activated

    Hello!

    i have a column which shows when a contract expires. three days before the expiry i need to send an email. Hence, i have used conditional formatting to highlight cells whereby if the expiry date is less than 3 days from today, it is highlighted in red. Now i would also like to have a pop-up message which reminds me to check for these cells highlighted in red?

    how do i do so?

    please help.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    1 purpose of CF IS to flag you when certain criteria are (or are not) met. If thats not working for you, why even bother to use it? Perhaps, instead, use a helper column to generate something, then, in your header, test for that, and make that change color - or give a message?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
