Filtering by date range

Once I strip a ~15MB Excel spreadsheet down to semi-manageable size i am left with data in columns E to O.

Column N contains dates.

I need a macro that would contain both a lower and upper limit date.
When the macro is run it would change all the rows that fall outside the set date limits.

The row being from Ex to Ox

Those rows that fall outside the date limits, their default text color would change to [White, Background 1, Darker 5%]

Any row (Ex to Ox) would stay its automatic color if it falls within the date range and the remaining rows (Ex to Ox) would change to a very lite gray making but not quite invisible.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Have you considered Conditional Formatting?  In Excel 2010 it is quite flexible.  You could create a formatting rule that looks at the dates and applies your format on those dates that fall outside a given range.

Conditional formatting is not viable in this case. The macro I'm inquiring about is the first step to a number items, hopefully, that can be done with this worksheet.
Thanks

I have attached an example, a PDF file. Contains two screen shots. First is raw data.
Second is the needed result, for example , a date range of May/June. All other dates "not" in that range turn a light gray [White, Background 1, Darker 5%].
Thank you for any assistance.
