Hi
I need to try and get a formula for changing a cells color if it meets certain criteria, EG:-

Cell A1 will change to green if cell B1 has a higher number than cell C1, and it will change to RED if B1 was lower than C1.
 

Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Welcome to the Board!

In A1 goto Format-->Conditional Formatting-->Formula is-->=B1>C1-->Format-->Pattern-->Green.

Add a Condition and Formula Is-->=C1>B1-->Format-->Patterns-->Red.

Note that there will be no formatting if they're equal, but that may be what you wanted.

Hope that helps,

Smitty
