    Formula help

    Ok.....I thought I had this figured out but its not doing anything!

    In a sheet I have a column for a date....Ex 12/1/09 -------- I would like to have the cell change color after it passes 75 days for the date thats in the cell....Example, 12/1/09 changes to yellow after todays date passes (for round numbers) 2/15/10............And then turn red after 90 days from 12/1/09-------------

    I used the formula as follows and I believe it should work but nothing happens. Please assume that A1 is the desired cell to change.

    Went to Format - Conditional formatting -
    1st condition.
    Formula (A1+90)<TODAY() changed the format to color the cell red

    2nd condition.
    Formula (A1+75)<TODAY() changed the format to color the cell yellow.

    Please help.....nothing happens......I checked TOOLS----OPTIONS----Calculations-----Auto.......Its ok so I think....

    Any ideas,,,,,,,,THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    You will be asked to change the title, so please change the title to reflect the subject matter instead of generic terms like formula, help etc. A descriptive title makes it easy for others to search for related topics.

    See the example attached. Use either one.
