Richard- I love the Project Manager Template I just purchased and Im trying to modify it a bit to meet my specific needs. My difficulty is that I need to be able to number calculate a value between the date in label D00 on the Task Planner and another date (Incumbent Expire Date) in my table and query. I want to use that calculated number in some conditional formatting to set background colors in the boxes corresponding to the dates in D00 through D20. Ive tried several options including DateDif, etc. but without success. It seems as if the data in D00 is just not recognized as a date or a number. So, please help me Obi Wan! Youre my only hope! Live long and prosper!

What are you having happen? Is it giving you an error or a strange value back? You could always CDate Or CInt/CDbl it and see if it works to confirm it sees it as a date or number.
If this is a value you added to a new table yourself, then you should be able to use the same logic that I used for changing colors. If you're trying to change the HEADER fields, then you don't need to use conditional formatting. A simple D00.BackColor= will work since there's only one of those.
Sorry, only students may add comments.
