Create a new conditional formatting rule that uses a formula to determine which cells to format in the range A4:A57. Apply bold font style and blue font color (eighth column under Standard Colors) to film titles with a rating of PG-13 and a profit of more than \$125.

I’m trying to use conditional formatting to create rules for cells to color code blue or red when values are either lesser or greater. Columns C7-17 and F7-17 are comparing to each other. Columns C24-50 and F24-50 are cells that allow my conditional formatting to work. Ultimately, cells F7-17 are color coded based on comparing to cells C7-17, with the work to allow this formatting following below. Looking at the attached, I need help formatting the cells F8, F10, and F12. Rules I’m struggling on in these three cells: F8: If value is comparing a \$ figure to text None, the None cell should be blue. F10: If value is comparing None to \$ value, the \$ value should be red. If value is comparing % to \$ value, \$ value should be red.

I have a list of data with 6 digits followed by a dash and two letters (123456-AA) I want a conditional formatting that will color the cell if the first 6 digits match. I know how to use Left(cell #,6) to separate the digits. I also know how to format a regular full match. I just don't know how to combine them.

I’m working on a project in which I need to have the rows (A to I) to be highlighted in specific color based on the text provided in the particular cell, if it is a single row/cell I’m able to do it thru conditional formatting but it is required it in multiple rows. For Eg. If Cell A1 has the text “Naren” and cell A2 has “B” then the row should be highlighted in Green and the same cells has the text of “Bas” and “C” then the row should be highlighted in red, point to note here is the text will be in multiple rows and in whatever rows/col (cell) it is updated the particular row should be highlighted with specified color.
