Experts,

The criteria I have is:  [Disbursement_Date] (its in cell C3) cant be within 30 days of a [Disbursement_Request] i(ts in cell C2).

I am using Data Validation for this.

I have the following so far:
Data:  Less than
End Date = C2-30
I have also tried Greater than

For any date I enter in C3 I get the Data Validation message but I only need the message if the date entered is within 30 days of a [Disbursement_Request]

How can I do this?  Not sure if I need a "between" i/o less than or greater than.
thank you

I think what you want is the other way wrong. Your dialog box should say:

Allow: Date
Data: greater than
Start date: =C2+30
