How to formulate a cell with a color automatically when entering a specific letter?
 

Excel Facts

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Got it....thanks...........now if I want to have another color in the same column with a different test in it, can I do that?

In other words, I have a column that i enter a "Y" and in the same column I could enter a "N". The Y will get a green cell and the N will get a red cell.

Possible???

Yes you can stack conditional formats by using the add function up to three I know for sure but that may be the limit .

Note you can use some other tricks if you need more then three conditional formats, such as using VBA which gives you a logical 53 (I think) but this is cut down a little by duplicates.
