Im Working on the last sheet. This is a firehouse schedule of sorts to figure out best, worst most and least expensive options. Shifts are broken up in to Red, Green, Blue. Each of the 12 employees have and EDO (Earned Day Off) day. If the that EDO day falls on a holiday, it is cheaper for management, since the employee don't get paid. Pay Scale is also somewhat variable and can make a difference. The Employee list with shift and EDO is at b18:d29, Shift color (red, blue,..) will not change, just the EDO. The pay Scale: Most - Captains, Lieutenants, Senior, Proby - Least The final result is Cells F67 and I67 I would like to Solve for Cheapest and most expensive.

I need to know how to treat cells differently (i.e., to determine whether to add them up as part of a sum) based on the color of the cells.

I want to change the color of the text in column c to green based if there is or is not a date in column j. Also if column j did not have a date, column c would change the text color in column c to yellow if there is a date in column h. Finally, if both column j and h both do not have a date the text in column c should change to red.

I have a spreadsheet that has store data on it and I need to match that store data on sheet two, with the applicable "DCI Sales Rep." You will see that I've color coded the data to match from sheet one to sheet two, since I know there will be some errors with the address. First formula is bringing over the sales rep from sheet two, to sheet one based on the address and the second is bringing over the DCI sales rep from sheet two, to sheet one, based on the sales portal ID.

I have conditional formatting on a table column that is based on another column. Is there a way to pull that color into the pivot table formatting without doing an additional conditional format?
