Hi, I have a list of dates for containers I have at work. They are certified for 6 months. Each container has a different 'last tested date' how do I get the date to change red when it has gone out of date. Also is it possible to have an early warning system, say turn orange after 5 months, then red after 6....played about for almost a day now....any help would be great...Thanks....Dave :confused:

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney
