From: mjones on 25 Jan 2010 20:17 Hi All, Is there a way to format a cell based on the day of the month? I'd like the cell colour to change if it's the 24th or 25th of the month. Thanks if you know. Michele From: Pete_UK on 25 Jan 2010 20:22 Michele, Suppose your dates are in column D, starting with D2. Highlight the cells from D2 down, then bring up the CF dialogue box. Select Formula Is rather than Cell Value Is in the first box, and enter this formula: =OR(DAY(D2)=24,DAY(D2)=25) then click on the Format button and choose your background colour from the Patterns tab. OK your way out. Hope this helps.

I need to clarify though. I meant the actual day, like today() knows the actual date. The date is not in a cell. Is this still possible? From: Pete_UK on 25 Jan 2010 20:41 In that case you would use this formula: =OR(DAY(TODAY())=24,DAY(TODAY())=25) Hope this helps.
