I need to shade a cell based on a date range.  I tried to use the Conditional Formatting "between" but I am not getting it right.  

I have 3 columns:  Margin Rate; From Date; To Date

I need to color "Margin Rate" if today's date is between the "From Date" and "To Date".

Please see attached example

thank you
