Hi,
I am trying to get a conditional format where the row is highlighted in red if the end date is < today and the status != to complete. Seems fairly simple but unable to do it. I attached the test spreadsheet and copied and pasted the text below. Thanks in advance

assignment 1       Jacob      4/9/2012              4/10/2012      Not Started      
assignment 2      Jacob      4/9/2012              4/10/2012      Complete      
assignment 3      Jacob      4/10/2012      4/19/2012      Not Started

Wow that was fast, and worked like a charm. Thank you! If you don't mind I have 2 more conditions I would like to add.

If start date is this week i would like the row green.
If end date is this week but !=today and not complete then row yellow.

Great thank you so much. Would like to keep open for a little bit. I am just trying to make all 3 work together without conflicting with one another. Greatly appreciated.

Ok last one.
If  cell E2 the status = Ready for QA or Complete I want no filter applied or just white background.
I tried a series of things and this is the last thing I came up with but doesn't work.

=AND(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Ready for QA",$E2)),$E2="Complete")


EDIT:
actually I just created 2 rules like this:
=IF($E2="Ready for QA", TRUE, FALSE)
and
=IF($E2="Complete", TRUE, FALSE)

This works but if you have a better way or can combine them into one that would be great. Thank you.
