When an assignment comes in that date is
entered into a cell. we also have have a cell to place the date the work is completed, the date it is returned to us by e-mail, and the date it is sent back to our customer. What I would like to do is to setup
the cell with the date showing when it was returned to change color it this was over 10 business days past due. We do not count weekends in the time promised.
thanks Paddy for replying,

Excel Facts

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

HI

1) you should simply post a reply to your original post, not start a new thread for the same topic!

2) I'm off now, but check out the netrworkdays() function & conditional formatting, which should give you what you need

something like:

=NETWORKDAYS(TODAY(),duedate)<=3

with an appropriate format...

I am sorry for not following procedures, this was my first posting. I thank you for your help. When you said to use conditional formatting, will I have to know how to program in Visual Basic? Or do I just set this up as a formula within a cell.
thanks,
Waynetrim

...don't worry about it!

conditional formatting is a straightforward excel feature - no coding needed. take a look in the help files. post back if they don't make sense!
