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.

Hi! I was wondering if it is possible to color-fill a row on excel based on a dropdown list. For example, in column A I have a drop down list with about 10 different options, and I was wondering if there is a way to make the whole row change color based on what I select?

Hi, I'm a school teacher and I head up an ISR Department and I am attempting to do a Spreadsheet that keeps track of several things, such as; Student Name, Time Served In Detention, Infraction, etc... I should state that my wife found a generic spreadsheet that "she" was able to change things around a little bit to fit what I was looking for... BUT here's my question: At the top of the sheet, I am wanting to have different categories such as; T Tardy, LD Lunch Detention, SKC Skipping Class, etc. (there are more classifications, but that's just a few). I want to assign each infraction its own color, and be able to type in the abbreviation in the cell area, and the color along with abbreviation will automatically pop up in the cell area so I can get a good visual on what's going on. Step by step Screenshots would be VERY helpful! PLEASE HELP!!!!
