Is there an actual function that changes cell colour rather than Conditional Formatting? It wouldn't work in this situation. I basically have an IF statement and I want the TRUE result to be the colour of the cell changing. Ive tried setting it to "1", then setting a rule where all "1" become that colour, but nothing happens. I've tried it with and without the quotations.

Column A contains name of participants. Column B contains the binary info of whether the participant won. If won, then 1, if lost, 0.

But unable to assign this rule to all participants at once. Instead, I have to conditional format every participant.

Hi, I am using Conditional Formatting in Excel. I am trying to compare text in one column to text in another column, but the text in the one of the columns is included within other text. So, for example, a cell in column A includes the phrase: "I use Excel everyday" and a cell in column B includes the phrase "use Excel". I am trying to figure out whether the phrase "use Excel" in column B appears in column A, even though it is included within other text. My entire spreadsheet is like this.
