:oops:
Am looking for a formula that I can add to a cell that would change the color of the font if the answer exceeds the assigned maximum number. Appreciate any help.
 

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Have you tried Conditional Formatting? Or is a formula what you principally want ??

I don't believe that you can change the formatting of a cell by a formula. You can use Conditional Formatting for this problem though. It sounds like your problem woiuld be a perfcet opportunity to use conditional formatting.
