Hi i need a conditional format to turn cells B red if they are less than A when 100% and they are less then 100% themselves

Hello, I understand that you need help with conditional formatting.
User 16/07/2018 - 01:11
If A is 100% turn B red unless B is 100% then turn green

Will you be able to provide an example using the document to the right?
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:12
I mean, if you could provide all possible situations, it would help me a lot.
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:12
How about the rest?
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:13
So A doesn't have to be 100%?
User 16/07/2018 - 01:13
I already have a conditional format for that but i am struggling on this one
User 16/07/2018 - 01:13
When A is 100%
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:14
Don't worry, I'm here to help. I'm just trying to fully understand what you need and what you already have implemented so I can provide an accurate solution.
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:14
So, let's start from scratch, give me the exact rule you need even though you already have the rule for when A is 100% so I can create one that works for you.
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:16
I see. Thank you. That's very helpful.
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:16
So these 4 are all the rules then?
User 16/07/2018 - 01:17
I have 3 rules i cannot get the 4th in cell 14 to work
User 16/07/2018 - 01:17
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:17
Oh, so first 3 are all set, okay. One moment.
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:18
Based on how you worded your 4th rule, this should work:
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:18
User 16/07/2018 - 01:19
So i will have red amber green and also another red conditional format. 4 formats altogether right?
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:19
It depends on how you setup your priorities.
User 16/07/2018 - 01:20
I can move them up and down untill correct
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:20
Yep, that's all you need to do.
User 16/07/2018 - 01:20
Thank you so much
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:20
=and(A2=100,B2<100) simply checks A if it is 100, then checks B if it is less than 100.
User 16/07/2018 - 01:20
Do i close the page
Excelchat Expert 16/07/2018 - 01:20
