I've got a fairly large worksheet with columns that are grouped by category. There's shading in some of the rows. I'd like to shade the categories of columns variously without losing the row shading.
Is there a way to make all shading translucent and add conflicting shading (row crosses column or vice versa), and have the intersection cells show a hue that's the sum of the two that intersect there?
So, a light green column crosses a light blue row, with the intersecting cell a slightly deeper teal/turquoise?
It would help.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

I think 3 rules could do it. Look up using MOD in conditional formatting, so rows that are even (light blue), columns that are even (light green), and then one for when both exist (teal/turquoise).

Thank you C Moore. I appreciate your help. It would be great if cell shading could be superimposed at 50% opacity. My shoop background showing.
