Excel/Calender day excel formula



I am currently working a spread sheet tracking equipment 180 day inspections cycles.  I have the completion dates but need a formula to calculate the calendar day a 180 days in the future.  Also if not to much trouble I would like to color code the cell: <30 yellow, <15 Red.  If you could assist me I would be very appreciative and would learn a ton.

Thank You



The formula to calculate the date 180 days in the future would look like this.
Assuming the completion date is in cell A1 the formula would be +A1+180.  The formula cell should be formatted as date format.  If the value in cell A1 is 1/1/16 then the formula will yield 6/29/16.

I'm not sure what you are wanting to do relative to the conditional formatting, so I am ot answering that.
