Cell shading dependent on other cell

Hi,

I have a problem that is really bugging me. It sounds really simple but I can't get it how I want it:

I have a project with 2 sheets: "sheet1" and "sheet2"
If I change anything in a specific cell, lets say cell A1 in "sheet1", I want a specific cell in "sheet2", lets say B4, to be an exact clone of that cell A1 in "sheet1".

For example: I change the color in cell A1 to green and fill the cell with the word "finished". Now I want that cell B4 in "sheet2" also becomes green and displays the word "finished".

is this possible?

Kind Regards,

Niessink

The only way I can think of doing that is to copy cell a1 and paste picture link to B4

You simply copy cell a1, go to cell b4 and holding down shift, select the edit menu --> Paste Picture Link

Hi,

I have tried your solution. In first instance it seems to work. The cell B4 becomes a copy of cell A1. But when I change the shading of cell A1, unfortunately cell B4 doesn't change with it. The problem seems simple at first, but it proves more difficult then it looks.

Thanks for trying tho.

Hi Niessink

I tested this again and when I change the colour, font, shading, size or any other aspect of cell A1 it is reflected in Cell B4. Are you sure you selected Paste Picture Link. If you selected Paste as Picture it would be static.

Hey Win Zip,

You were right. It works now. I have a Dutch version of excel so I think the solution was lost in the translation. Thanks for the effort of making another reply. this really helped. Kind Regards,
