Here is what I have. I have a cell that contains a date that something is due. In the next cell beside it i have a "date recieved" column that tells when that something came in. What I want the "date recieved" cell to do is turn yellow if the "date required" has past and nothing has been entered into the "date recieved cell". How do I go about doing this?

Thanks

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

Let L5 be required by
Let K5 be received on

Cond format for cell K5 =

select formula is...

=AND(TODAY()>$L$5,$K$5="")

This works... obviously, set your format to cell pattern 'yellow'
