Conditional Formatting is ignoring some date conditions.

MS Excel 2010 Conditional Formatting Rules Manager, I have 5 rules that check for the following date conditions:

Cell contains a blank value - No Format Set
Cell Value = "<Today()"
Today
Next Week
This Week

 There are two conditions that are no longer formatting... "<Today()" and Today.

These had been working until I HIDE columns K & L. I've tried unhiding and re-applying the conditional formatting but it is still not formatting.

See attached screenshot.

That's supposed to be:

Cell Value >> Is Less Than >> =TODAY()

in 3 separate fields... and not quotes...

That might ending up fixing the TODAY condition too... as that looks like it should be right...

Thanks NBVC!
I looked at it 10 times and missed the obvious.
