I'm trying to create a formula that will change the color of a cell based on a date in 2 and 4 week intervals. I want to be able to enter in a date (which would start green) and then 2 weeks from that date entered turn yellow, then two weeks from that date, turn red. What I don't want it to do is base the color changes on today's date, but on the date actually entered in the cell.
The formula I have now changes the colors based on the current date (TODAY) but not on the date that was actually entered in the spreadsheet.
Is there a way to change the colors based on the date entered in the column and not today's date? Once the cycle is complete, I want to be able to enter in a new date, and have the same process repeat.
Basically I have a list of inventory and want to know where it is in the 4 week cycle so that it can be cleaned, and then re-entered back into inventory to go through the 4 week cycle yet again.
@Wyn Hopkins Ok, so I've got it to do what I want it to do, but I want the rental date to start out as green, then the column that says 2 weeks to change to yellow when it reaches 2 weeks, and the column that says 4 weeks to change to red when it reaches 4 weeks. Right now, only the current date changes colors. If that makes sense I hope?
