I would be interested in creating a rule in Excel that will change the color of a cell depending on what the value is of the two cells to the left of it. (For example change C1 if there is a character in either A1,B1, or both) The color that it must change to depend on the word typed in the cell that needs to be changed. (C1 having "Apple" in it would be a different color than C2 having "Orange" in it) How can I do this?

Is there a way to pull the color information from a cell and display in columns marked Red Green Blue and Hex? I have a sheet where the cells are colored. I need to translate them into RGB without having to look the them up individually. In essence I need to pull the information in column A to populate columns C,D,E. I manually populated these columns in the uploaded sheet.

I want to highlight cells as per increasing orders of values. Eg. if it has value 3 it should be green and 2 and 1 should be lighter shades of green. If I add 4 in the same column, then 4 should have color of 3. 3 should take color of 2, 2 should take color of 1 and 1 should be a shade lighter.

I have a worksheet that I am trying to write formulas in that will change other cells in the worksheet based on data in other cells. I would like to calculate due dates based on award type and proposed presentation dates. I would also like to change the color of letters in date due cell to red if received after due date. I am not sure this is the correct way ahead. =IF(OR(C2="LOM",C2="MSM",C2="ARCOM"),"F2+120","F2+90","F2+60"))
