hi,
is it possible to colour fill a given amount of cells, eg. if a1 = 5 then the 5 cells below will change colour,
and if the number changes then the amount of highlighted cells changes

thanks

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Yes to both!

colour cell depending on value / condition = conditional formatting.

change value of cell depending on value / condition of another cell = appropriate formula.

Check out conditional formatting in the help & post back with more info on the details of what you are trying to do.

OK - but what are the conditions you want to implement? Please describe your data & the expected outcomes in a little more detial - no mind readers here!
