For this example, the input cell is A1 and the compare cell is B1

A1: 06/22/2005
B1: 06/10/2005

Select A1
Format>Conditional Format
->Condition 1
--->Cell value is greater than =$B$1
--->Format: Pattern:RED, Font Color:White
->Condition 2
--->Cell value is between =$B$1-30 and =$B$1
--->Format: Pattern:YELLOW, Font Color:Black
Click [OK]

That should do it....
Does it?

Good evening Khaji00

This is possible, but a bit difficult to explain, so, loath as I am to
doing so, I have attached a small file demonstating how to.  You need
to use the conditional formatting tool as shown in the example file.

How do I get an automatic equal sign to begin the formula bar?
How do I get an automatic equal sign to appear in the formula bar in Excel for Microsoft 2003? This happened for me in the 2000 version and I could just click on it with my mouse pointer, but now all that appears is the function sign with no equal sign after it. It makes my job a lot more time consuming to have to type in the equal sign while building formulas. Please help, anybody? The = icon disappeared in newer versions of excel (xl2002???). You can add an = icon Tools|customize|commands tab|Insert category (Scroll down the list until you find the = icon) And drag it to your fav...

Money 2007 not downloading sp2 update after re-install
I just completed rebuilding my computer using the Windows 7 beta. After reinstalling Money 2007 I can no longer open my account file as the versions are different. Money is not announcing a new version as it did before. Is there a way to force this or download the update manually? Thanks, One thing to try is opening the sample.mny file to see if it will download anything. Otherwise you are out of luck. After all Windows 7 is a beta and all that this implies i.e. full of bugs and not tested with all MS applications. If the sample.mny trick does not work you will need to scrub Window...

Allow searching of date fields to allow wildcard characters
For fields such as birthdays and expiry dates, customers often want to search the database for a list of contacts with birthdays. It would be great if you would allow wildcards in date field searches so that we could search for all birthdays that occur in a specific month. The year is not always relevant when performing date searches. Birthdays is a common search performed by customers in the financial sector as well as other industries. Currently, we have to add an additional text field to facilitate this type of search. It adds confusion to the users, in some cases double data entry...

Need help updating a value in VBA code
Hello Great Plains Gurus, I need to write some VBA code that changes the value of a field on another form (SalesCustomerDetailEntry).

Therefore I can not add the Dynamics dictionary as a reference in my third party dictionary due to cyclical references not being allowed. Is there any way around this issue, ie calling some sanscript function to perform the update from inside VBA? I realize that I can...

Excel Automatically Formating Cells?
I am reading a file of decimal numbers into VBA. I can read them into a variant, or into a DOUBLE. No matter.

Everywhere else in the program, I do such assignments with no problem. Reformatting the cells outside the program doesn't help.Converting the variant to a string works before the assignment works but... why should I have to do this? Any idea what I am doing wrong?
