Navigate to a specific colored cell upon opening - Excel

Worksheet where row 1 starting with cell F contains dates at a 45 degree angle. The dates have conditional formatting. Yellow for weekends and Red for today's date. The color is FILL not text color. Also, columns A-E are frozen (locked) in place to scroll horizontally for the dates.

Is it possible that upon opening that today's date (Red fill) is positioned to be the first full date visible? With the 45 degree angle there would be two date cells to the left that are partially in view.

Thanks for any assistance or guidance

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't see why you need to worry about the color when you are looking for today's date so I may be missing something, but try this. Change the sheet name as needed.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Dim cel As Range
    Dim lngLastCol As Long
    Dim strLastCol As String
    With Sheets("Sheet1")
        lngLastCol = .Cells.Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, LookIn:=xlValues, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Column

        strLastCol = Split(.Cells(1, lngLastCol).Address, "$")(1)
        For Each cel In Range("F1:" & strLastCol & "1")
            If Format(cel.Value, "short date") = Format(Date, "short date") Then
                ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = cel.Column
                Exit Sub
            End If
    End With
End Sub
