    "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."

    But what about the background color --- or will that not work ---
    Thanks Murrey

    Hi again Murrey,

    If you want to use cell color fill, simply use Conditional Formatting (Alt-OD) and set the Condition 1 to "Cell Value Is", next dropdown to "equal to", and third dropdown to "Time to Call" (or whatever the tickler string is that is yielded by the formula), and finally click the Format button, select the Patterns tab and select the fill color you desire. You can also pick a font color, size, etc.
    Keep Excelling.
