I have never tried conditional formatting, but, it may apply, sorry I don't have time to investigate further, but, hopefully it helps.

I have a spreadsheet to keep track of payments. In one column I will type
'ctrl+;' to enter the date. These cells are formatted for date and duly show
the date. If a date is entered the amount received will appear in the
adjacent cell (the amount is the same for everyone, so it's part of the cell
formula).  On a separate sheet I keep track of payments due. These cells
check for entries in the 'Date' column. If the 'Date' column cell is blank,
they show amount due (requiring 'number/currency' formatting); if there is
an entry in the 'Date' column cell (ie. there has been a payment) I want the
cell to show the date from the 'Date' column. However, because the cells are
formatted for 'number/currency' I get a number. Under formulas we have
dateValue(). What is the opposite of that? Why isn't there a dateText()
formula? What am I missing?
