Conditional Formatting in Excel
How to see which invoices are 30, 60, 90+ days late in full color
Q: I have a spreadsheet with invoices and the date each was due. How can I visually make late invoices stand out by changing them to different colors based on how late they are?
A: Excel has a feature called Conditional Formatting that you can use to change the format (color, font, bold, etc.) based on the value of the cell. For example, here you can see that all of the invoices that are 30 to 60 days late are red, 60 to 90 are blue, and over 90 are green and bold.

In this example, I've used the TODAY() function to determine how many days late each invoice is, and then I used Conditional Formatting to change the color based on that.

We have a FREE video tutorial that shows you how to do this step-by-step.

I also cover Conditional Formatting in much more detail in my Excel 104 class.
