I am trying to format a cell to be highlighted red if the following conditions are true:

  • the future date associated with that row (which is in a separate cell) is less than 21 days from today, and
  • the cell (which is the one I want to format) contains "no".

1 Answer 1


Suppose the dates are in column A, beginning with row 2, and cells to be formatted are in column B. Then you'd use conditional formatting with custom formula

=AND(A2<TODAY()+21, B2="no")

applying it to the range B2:B.
