Determine if dates has passed with formula

Supposing the current date is 2015/5/25, with the following formula, you can determine if date has passed compared with today’s date. Please do as follows.

1. Select a blank cell which is adjacent to the date you want to determine if it is overdue. Enter formula =IF(ISBLANK(A2),"",IF(A2<TODAY(),"Overdue","Not due")) into the formula bar, and then press the Enter key.

2. Drag the Fill Handle to the range with the dates you want to determine if overdue. See screenshot:

Notes:

1. You will get two results: Overdue and Not due. If that’s an overdue date compared to today’s date, the cell will be populated with Overdue. On the contrary, it will be populated with Not due.

2. In the formula, ISBLANK means that when there is a blank cell in selected range, the result will be blank.


Determine if dates has passed with Conditional Formatting

With the Conditional Formatting function, you can highlight all dates which are overdue compared to today’s date.

1. Select the date list, and click Conditional Formatting > New Rule under Home tab. See screenshot:
