Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

OK, if I understand you correctly, you have multiple columns with a heading of "Balance", i.e. columns E, J, etc. (by the way, are headings always in row 1)?
So, what if in a particular row (say, row 4), the "Balance" in column E is less than 0, but then "Balance" in column "J" is greater than 0?
Then what color do we want to make row 4? Red or green?
