Excel 2010 Conditional Formatting - Blanks

Hello,

I am trying to create conditional formatting in Excel 2010.

I am trying to make the cell GREEN when the date is in the future and red is the date is the current date or in the past and nothing (i.e. white) is the cell to which the conditional formatting is applied is blank.

I have created the conditional formatting as shown however blank cells turn red? Could anyone suggest why this is?

Regards,

can you set Cell Value <= TODAY() AND NOT Cell contains a blank...?

an empty cell will be interpreted as less than today because its got no data in.

try: =AND(NOT(ISBLANK(I1)),I1<=TODAY())

but I dont recommend setting the rule to cover all 650000 rows - place it in just the areas you want to cover or excel will slow down when recalucalating.

Move the third condition up and check the Stop if true box.
