Within a range of cells that are in a named range, called Date_Rate, there exists an exchange rate that equals the rate shown in a cell outside this named range. I want to apply conditional formatting to the one cell that resides inside this named range that equals the content of the cell outside this range.

Date_Rate range is:
=$A$4:$B$34,$D$4:$E$31,$G$4:$H$34,$J$4:$K$33,$M$4:$N$34,$P$4:$Q$33,$S$4:$T$34,$V$4:$W$34,$Y$4:$Z$33,$AB$4:$AC$34,$AE$4:$AF$33,$AH$4:$AI$34

The cell outside this range is G2. G2 gets its value from another excel file. You should notice that the value in A1 coincides with today’s date (in this case 15 March as seen in the attached xl2bb data).
You will also notice that today’s date has conditional formatting applied to have the text bold and magenta with a light blue fill.
Thus I want the exchange rate that appears next to today’s date to also have conditional formatting similar to the date’s conditional format.
Any help is much appreciated. I have spent now about hours scouring the web for an answer and have not found anything to help.
