hi guys!
I need some help.
I'm creating a spreadsheet to show when car MOT expires.
I have a column (F) which has MOT expiry dates in.
I have a CF which highlights the cell red if the date is more than TODAY. This worked fine.
What I would like is, once the MOT expiry date gets within 15 days before todays today, i want it go to orange.
thanks.

kieferschild, Good morning.

Try to use:

A1 --> EXPIRE DATE
THEN..

=AND(A1<=TODAY();TODAY()-A1<=15)

Use to COLOR ORANGE

Is this what you want?
I hope it helps.

Sorry, you'll have to excuse how much of a noob I am when it comes to Excel.

My dates are all in column C.

Kieferschild, Good morning.

As you set a RED color, you now how to create a rule.

Now, you'll create a NEW RULE.

Select at C column the EXPIRE DATES
Suppose: C2:C20

CF MENU --> NEW RULE --> USING FORMULA

Type it at field: =AND(C2>=TODAY(),C2-TODAY()<=15)

Choose ORANGE as fill format
OK

Please, tell us if it working now.
