I am looking to highlight any dates that passed, however, when I use the built in format it highlights the blanks as well. When I used if($n6<=today(),"true","") it does the same thing. My goal is to just highlight any dates that are today's date and past, without the blanks being highlighted as well. Your help is greatly appreciated

Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Try this formula

=AND($N6<>"",$N6<=TODAY())

Note: The formulas in the conditional format evaluate whether the condition is met, it is not necessary to put the result "True,False" within the formula.
