Hi all,

I have the following data:

Column A: Projected completion date (normal format DD/MM/YY)
Column B: Project status (either "active" or "inactive")

I want to use conditional formatting to highlight a date prior to today but only if the project status is "active". I know the formula for the first part is =A2<TODAY() but could someone help me combine this to limit it the condition in column b?

Thanks very much in advance!

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.
