Hi,

So I am trying to use conditional formatting for a number of cells.

I have a list of "Due Dates", I would like these to highlight Red

IF TODAY() is greater than the Due Date and if Balance (in a different cell) is greater than 0

I cant seem to piece this together... can anyone help.

Try using AND, e.g. with date in A1 and Balance in B1 use this formula in conditional formatting

=AND(TODAY()>A1,B1>0)

Perfect that seems to work... Is there an easy way to apply the formula to all the cells in that column?

Normally it's easiest to select the range you need, e.g. select down to row 100 and then just apply that same formula - it automatically adjusts for each row.

In Excel 2007 and later if you have already applied CF to a single cell then you can go into conditional formatting and change the "applies to" box to the range you need rather than a single cell....but you shouldn't alter the start point of the range.

Alternatively you can use the "format painter" - the little paintbrush button on the toolbar/ribbon. Select the cell with CF applied then click on formula painter, then select the range to which to apply that format
