Excel Conditional Formatting Help

I have a spreadsheet (see attached) for which I need to add some conditional formatting.
I would like the row to be filled in when column E (ETA_DATE) is older than today.

So, in the spreadsheet, rows 3, 7 and 10 will need to be highlighted.

Thank you for your help.

Select the whole range, starting at A1 to F10,

Go to Home|Conditional Formatting|New Rule

Select to "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

enter formula:

=AND($E1<>"",$E1+0<=TODAY())

then click Format and choose from Fill tab.

Column E needs to be changed to date

So use Data>Text to column>date

Then conditional format based upon formula

=E2<=Today()

Colour Yellow Fill applied

See attached.

I am resending my spreadsheet again. The above worked on my sample but not on the actual spreadsheet. I had dates after today highlighted, etc.

The sample I have entered manually some older dates but on this attachement is actually how the date is after running SQL.

Use this formula in an end column:

=DATEVALUE([@[ETA_DATE]])

Then format off that column.
