I need conditional formatting formulas to apply to whole columns, if possible. I want to have cells that contain an X to change color based on the expiration dates in another cell. Green if within 120-91 days, yellow if within 90-61 days, red if within 60-31 days, black if 30 days and below, all .  All cells that have a date more than 120 days or are blank should remain unformatted.

Example: Column A contain students names, column B contain due dates and columns C-G contain assignments. If a student has not completed the assignment an X would be placed in the cell under that assignment. Once student is within 120 days to the due date color should change to green.
