Hello,

since all your dates are already red, you need a conditional format to turn the ones in the future to black. To do that

- select all the data in column A, from row 1 to the last row (558)
- on the Home ribbon click "Conditional Formatting > New Rule"
- Select "Use a formula to determine..."
- enter this formula:

=A1>TODAY()

- click the "Format" button and set a black font color.
- click OK in all dialogs.

cheers, teylyn
