Conditional formattingPosted by Bill on October 13, 1999 9:08 PM
This is probably pretty simple. I have a column that is already "conditionally formatted." Returns a simple answer based on a set of conditions...How can I highlight another column with colors or borders that has no relevance mathematically with the column in question? For example: (and I apologize)
Cell H4 has a a value of "No". Based on "=IF(F4-C4>4500,"Yes","No"). Say I'd like to highlight cell A4, in a certain way. Bold it, or change the background color if the return is "Yes". I've tried every thing I can think of w/o using VB. But there's got to be an easy way...isn't there?

There is an easy way. You are going to conditionally format A4. In the conditional format dialog, change from "Cell Value is" to "Formula is." Then use a formula like the following:
Choose the conditional formatting that you want, and you're done.
