    Conditional Formatting - Dates before this MONTH

    Hello!

    I can easily format a cell if the date in it is before TODAY, but I only want to format cells where the date is before today's MONTH... for example, if the date in the cell is 1st June and today is 22nd June, I do NOT want it highlighted. If its 31st May ro earlier, then I DO want it highlighted.

    I'm sure its super easy, but I just cant think of it right now and its driving me nuts!!

    Many thanks

    Hi Lesley,
    In the sample below, I am formatting cell G5:
    =MONTH(TODAY())>MONTH($G$5)
    ..basically the month in which we are today needs to be greater than the month of the date in G5.

    Hi ORoos
    That so ALMOST perfectly works! What I omitted ws that it needs to include the year... so June 2020 would NOT be highlighted, but June, July, Aug etc in 2019 would. Your formula seems to work on month only. Can you help to refine it please?
