Annual Address Update


My job requires me to update personnel addresses annually.  I want to track each individual by placing a date in a cell and the conditional formatting in the same cell changes color according to the date (i.e. over 365 days would be red and under 365 days would be green).  So I put conditional formatting in the example attached.  The cell does the opposite of what I want it to do.  Is there a formula/conditional format that can be utilized to show what I am requesting?

"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.

These are steps for your request.

1. Select 1 cell or range of cells with date information then set conditional formatting.
2. Select new rule.
3. After format setting, don't forget to apply to other cells by Format Painting.

With dates, I have often seen the theory applied the wrong way round. Dates are basically held as numbers in Excel so comparisons can be done just like ordinary numbers but need to decide what you are comparing.
