Excel Conditional formatting or another option?

I am working on an attendance spreadsheet where I want to be able to color code (conditional format) number of occurrences within a specific time frame. Right now I am calculating the total points and if it goes above a certain number then conditional formatting the cell. Here is what I want it to do and I don't know if Conditional formatting can be useful or if there is another formula to use: 1. If someone had more than 2 occurrences within a rolling 30 days I want the cell to highlight red. 2. If someone had one occurrences withing a rolling 30 days I want the cell to highlight yellow. 3. If someone had any occurrences within the first 14 days (work days - 5 days a week not 7) then it should highlight red. Help! Rachel
