Hi everyone, I am hoping to get a little help. I am trying to conditionally fomat a cell range to change colors if and when the system date exceeds the date in the cell. I can get it to change but can not get it to clear once I change the date in the cell. The cell is formatted to auto calculate a date by when training is due. Any help anyone can give me on this is greatly appreciated.

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

What have you tried for the conditional formatting?

You should just be able to select the range, goto conditional formatting, select Cell Value is , select less than and enter =TODAY().
