Question asked by user @ Excel forum:-
How to highlight cells tomorrow excluding weekend through Conditional formatting?
I have dates entered manually down the C column and i use the standard highlight rule to color the cells i.e. today. Tomorrow and Yesterday. Now my issue is come Friday in the week I wish to have Mondays date highlighted as Tomorrow so it has excluded the weekend. The standard conditional formatting for when date occurs won’t work in this instance and I have tried at least 20 formulas from forums etc.
What am I doing wrong? Or is there a simpler way? I just wish it to not count any weekends and make Friday 1 and Monday the day after so it will highlight as if it was tomorrow.
