Format sheet

Posted by Bill L. on April 13, 2000 4:50 PM

Backgrounds are easy enough, but what can you do to spice up a sheet that is conditionally formatted with colors? Is there any way to add texture or such to cells? For instance, I have a sheet that is CF. Certain cells return a certain color when a condition is met/unmet. A background won't show through. I'm working on a sheet for my brother and he asked me innocently enough, why can't you give my sheet that brick texture?

You are limited to what is avail from the cell
fill colors.
You can how ever try as you mentioned putting in
a bacground of the Brick texture, and then conditionally formating so that it dosen't show
ie. you only see a white background then if your
condition you want is met it will show the
brick texture background = default cell background
