Hi Mike!

It doesn't work because the NETWORKDAYS function is in another 
workbook (the Analysis ToolPak add-in).

You can use a workaround by putting your condition in a separate cell 
(eg B1) and then referring to that cell:


Then your conditional format for A1 becomes:


Alternatively, you can use a conditional format formula that avoids 
the Analysis ToolPak

If you are wanting the cell containing this formula to change format
try "Cell value is " "equal to" and False or True for the value.

If your date calculation misbehaves, have a look at the Help file whic
suggests there can be problems with dates entered as text and recommend
using DATE(2004,7,27) and such likes.

Complicated conditional formatting
Here's a breakdown of what I'm trying to do...Employee scheduling worksheet that is easy to read and follow.

As it stands now, for the duration that the employee will work, I simply enter a 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 corresponding to their function, and it will color each cell with that value.

How to convert US date format to European

Date format of 0 and if statements
