I have created a Gantt chart. I have a category column I have added conditional formatting to, to control the color based on my key. I want the horizontal duration bars in my chart to match the color formatting of the category associated with each task duration, but I can't figure out how to do it. I'm thinking it'll be based on a conditional formatting in excel formula but i'm not finding what I need online.

Is there a formula to change the text (bold / color) of a cell, if the value in another cell is over a certain value? Kind of like an if-then statement in programming? On another note, is there a way to freeze the number in a cell that already has a formula in it, if another cell is over a certain number?

I’m trying to do a Vlookup formula to have column ‘Q’ – INITIAL Risk Level populate data I put into column “P” – Occurrence (Failure/Cause). So, Column P should pull in numbers 1-5 from the “Risk Tables” sheet, then, once I enter in 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, the risk level should populate in column ‘Q’, with the appropriate color “yellow or red”. Similar to what’s happening in column ‘V’ and ‘X’. Please see if you can assist in this formula headache.

Part of the data table (B14:H27) has been set up for you. Particularly, C14 links to the initial loan term assumption D9 and cells D14:H14 are set based on the loan term decrement assumption D10; B15 links to the initial annual interest rate assumption B9 and cells B16:B27 are set based on the initial interest increment assumption B10. Please complete the Data Table set up to calculate the monthly payments (as positive numbers) at different interest rates (B15:B27) and loan terms (C14:H14). Note: the data table is designed to be flexible, i.e., it will update automatically for any changes in the loan assumptions A9:D10. Use Conditional Formatting to format C15:H27 such that all the monthly payments that are higher than the maximum allowable monthly payment in N5 are in red color.
