I have a conditional formatting formula that highlights every that is older than today

=$I2<=TODAY()

How do I tell it to look at column I and highlight anything older than 3 months (90 days)?

Thank you

just subtract 90 like

=$I2<=TODAY()-90

that could highlight blank cells too, so to stop that change to

=AND($I2<>"",$I2<=TODAY()-90)

I understand your formula, but you can see from attached that it highlighted dates not older than 90 days and not all the rows that are older than 90 days (see row 96) are changed to red.

Thank you for your help.

You need to make sure that the formula applies to the top cell of the "applies to" range - you have "applies to" set to start at row 1 but formula applies to row 2 so you get the wrong formatting - see attached corrected version (I changed "applies to" range - which in turn changes the formula, so I then changed formula!)
