Dear Experts:

Column A of the current worksheets has entries with dates

I would like to apply conditional formatting to these dates with the following requirements:

If the date in Column A is within the next 10 days (from now) the date should get red shaded...
if the date in Column A is today the date should get yellow shaded ...
... and as soon as the date in Column A is in the past the Shading should change to green.

Help is much appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance

Regards, Andreas

If they are just dates (no times) then the conditions are, in order:

Cell Value <TODAY()
Cell Value =TODAY()
Cell Value <=TODAY()+10

and make sure to check the Stop If True option for all of them.

Note: if you have blank cells, you will need to use a formula for the first condition using:
=AND($A1<>"",$A1<TODAY())
assuming applied to A1 onwards.

You only need to specify two of the conditions, the third can be the default hard format colour of the cell.
