    If the tickler must go in effect from the 45th day on, use:

    =IF(TODAY()-B2<=45,"Time To Call","")

    But then, how do I reset the formula when I put in a new date for another 45 days?

    If I put in a new date, "Time To Call" doesn't go away like I want it to ---

    Also, I want "Time To Call" to pop up in yellow or green. How do I add to the formula?

    Thanks so much.

    Hi Murrey,

    The formula you are using for the tickler is correct, assuming that you want the tickler to appear 45 days after the date in cell B2. When you update the date in B2, the tickler should disappear (or appear) immediately depending on the date. The only way this can fail is if your computer's system date is not set correctly, or you don't have worksheet automatic calculation turned on (to turn it on go to Tools -> Options -> Calculation tab).

    Regarding coloration, simply set the text color for the cell to the color you desire. Since the text will not appear at all until the tickler date the coloration will not appear until the the tickler appears.

    Keep Excelling.
