Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

I would like to be able to check a box and have it highlight a certain cell. So lets say in my attached sheet if I check the box in F4 I want A4 to highlight yellow, A4 contains a drop down list so not sure if that matters, and if I check E4 I want it to highlight A4 blue. Is this possible?

I love the site thank you, unless you tell me this has to be done as a macro
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2017 - 07:27
oh yes, this site is so great. And you're right too, this issue is related to Macro.

Okay, I have 16 credits left so can you create what I need and when your done I can request again as a macro question
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2017 - 07:28
It adds some coding on your present macro script to make the color coding p possible

Excelchat Expert 03/08/2017 - 07:29
I do understand of yours, let me ask our supervisor first, since you posted as fixing formula different from macro

I tried adding a scroll bar earlier with EXPERT01 but that ended up being to much of a project
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2017 - 07:35

User 03/08/2017 - 07:35
