Hello,

I have multiple formulas in our spreadsheet at work. I have formulas for colors and when text is changed in another cell from a drop down list. When I click something from the list the cell next to it changes grey(we want this). We however, have to enter the client's contract number in this cell from the DD list. When I edit that cell it changes the other cell to either blank or a different color. Not sure if I am explaining well. Here is a pic, where you see one cell is red even though the cell next to it is grey. We need both cells to remain grey when we edit the one that says CTR.
