    Cell Color Change after time passes from a certain date

    Hi!

    So, i would like to have my spreadsheet to change colors after a certain time has elasped from a date in another cell.

    This is to make it easier to follow up with my customers after certain days.

    Here is what i have:

    Quoted Date Follow up date
    Jan 23 / 2012(A2) (B2)
    Feb 21 / 2012(A3) (B3)
    March 02 / 2012(A4) (B4)

    Could someone please help me with the Conditional Formating formula to make my cell rows A2-F2.. etc to change colors depending on todays date..

    7 Days - Turn Green
    14 Days - Turn Yellow
    30 Days - Turn Red

    Please advise

    Thanks!

    Hello Ruggyz,

    I am not quite clear as to exactly what you want. As a starter, see attached WorkBook.

    Do you want the colors to appear if Colomn B is empty or vice versa?

    Re: Cell Color Change after time passes from a certain date

    Hi Winon!

    So say i Have these in (a2) (a3) (a4)

    Jan 17 / 2012
    March 1 / 2012
    March 8 / 2012

    I would like:
    A2-F2 to be red because it is 30+ Days from **Todays Date** <March 16>
    A3-F3 to be yellow because it is 14+ Days from **Todays Date** <March 16>
    A3-F3 to be green because it is 7+ Days from **Todays Date** <March 16>

    Does that make sense? - Im new to this Conditional stuff lol

    Thanks!

    Re: Cell Color Change after time passes from a certain date

    Be a bit more specific by telling me which "all cells". If you want to apply it From Column A to Column F further down, just highlight row A50 to J50 and then drag it down as far as you want to go. That's it!

    Re: Cell Color Change after time passes from a certain date

    Hi all, following on from this thread - I am having a similar issue. Winon's workbook is really helpful, but am struggling to alter the time elapsed; i need red after 1 year, yellow after 6 months. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Hello thimblekitty,

    Unfortunately your post does not comply with Rule 2 of our Forum RULES.

    Do not post a question in the thread of another member -- start your own thread.

    If you feel an existing thread is particularly relevant to your need, provide a link to the other thread in your new thread.

    Old threads are often only monitored by the original participants. New threads not only open you up to all possible participants again, they typically get faster response, too.

    Please remember this for future posts, and in the meantime, please see if the attached sample Workbook, is what you want.

    Regards.
