ok I have a series of dates for our fleet of vehicles for service. I want to highlight the ones that are overdue. I know how to do it from todays date =today and all that but that is not what I need. The way I have it now there is a column that has "last Quarterly" which we physically type in the date. In the Next Column over is "Next Quarterly Due" which I take the previous date and add 90 days to that. What I am looking to do is Highlight the cell when those 90 days are done if we have not already done the check up to that vehicle.

I see your screenshot, where would you indicate a vehicle has done it's maintenance since Last Qtr (column I)?
Or is Column C your Only "Service" date?
 

Excel Facts

Last used cell?
Press Ctrl+End to move to what Excel thinks is the last used cell.

Well we do 2 kinds of service column C is when it actually breaks down or some minor problem it is brought into the garage, it is not relevant to my needs for this. Once the quarterly maintenance is done, the foreman would change the date in Col I so for example if tomorrow they did a quarterly on bus 27 they would replace the date of 12/4/20 to 4/14/21 the date in J7 would then add 90 days to that date. when it gets to be 91 days after that date, is when I want it to highlight

So it is as I suggested in Post #9, except with OR:

Book3.xlsx
IJK
1Last QtrNext Qtr
21/10/20214/10/2021TRUE
3^Formula for CF
Sheet913
Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
J2J2=I2+90
K2K2=OR(I2="",J2<TODAY())


PLEASE NOTE: I updated my post.

I honestly don't see how it wouldn't be working:

Book3.xlsx
IJK
1Last QtrNext Qtr
28/8/201811/6/2018TRUE
312/4/20213/4/2022FALSE
412/4/20213/4/2022FALSE
53/12/20216/10/2021FALSE
62/1/20185/2/2018TRUE
712/4/20203/4/2021TRUE
Sheet913
Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
J2:J7J2=I2+90
K2:K7K2=OR(I2="",J2<TODAY())
Cells with Conditional Formatting
CellConditionCell FormatStop If True
J2:J7Expression=OR(I2="",J2<TODAY())textNO


How exactly are you entering your CF, and exactly what formula are you using for Which column?

If all you want to do is highlight overdue dates I use the conditional formatting and it gives me flags, green, amber and red. Sorry if I am on the wrong track
