I have cells with dates formatted as DDD,MM/DD/YY (Example Mon, 03/01/21016).  I am trying to setup a conditional format for when the date is Jan 1 for any year.  I've tried the conditional format with search without luck.

is this possible?

Hi,

pls try something like this

=DATE(2000,MONTH(A1),DAY(A1))=DATE(2000,1,1)

Open in new window
