An Excel sheet with column of short dates 01/09-16/09 as above I want to enter a short Date in a cell and the background change to yellow 

Say I enter 03/06 then the column cell would change and then with a formula so that every six days would also change to yellow 09/09 and 15/09

In the attached, the range A1:E30 has been conditionally formatted to turn yellow when a date which is a multiple of 6 days away from 3rd September 2019 is entered into it.
Conditional format formula is:
=MOD(A1,6)=1

Hi

Thanks for your help I fully understand the information in your example and it works as you said
The problem came when I tried to have the first date as the start point I did this by adding dates 28 Aug to 15 Sep but for some reason it started after the 4th Day not 5th Day as I required
can you help

In the attached, the range A1:E30 has been conditionally formatted to turn yellow when a date which is a multiple of 6 days away from the date in row 1 of each column is entered into it.
The conditional format formula is:
=AND(MOD(A1-A$1+1,6)=1,COUNTBLANK(A1)=0)
