Conditional Formatting

I want to set up a condition where if a date on a sheet is more than 14 days in the past, the row will turn red. I would prefer to be able to customize how many days in the past a date would need to be to use this formatting too.

    Hi Jim,

    You’d have to use a so-called helper column with a formula. You can also use it together with another column for how many days it should use in the formula.

    Make sense?

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!
