In one of my workbooks I've got Dates in different columns F, H, M, V, AA and I've got TODAY() in D1 with A1:C1 the days before current and E1:K1 the days after TODAY().
Can I get the conditional format to indicate/highlight the cells F, H, etc. when they are within the range of cells A1:K1.
If it's not to much to ask can this also highlight the ID cell in column A when any of the date cells are highlighted?
I've tried selecting the cells in question (including the ID cell in A) and setting the conditional format to Formula Is and done
=($F4,$H4,$M4,$V4$AA4>=$A$1:$K$1)*($F4,$H4,$M4,$V4$AA4<=$A$1:$K$1)

Another Excelian provided me with a verison of this for another issue and that worked great, not sure why it wont for this?
THanks in advance.

Instead of the "formula is", have you tried the "between" selection ?

Thanks Andy. I got caught up in all the formula solutions I missed to obvious one.
Thought your graphic was right, Red Card. If I can't figure out that one maybe I should retire from the field.
