Can Conditional format only look at part of the information without an exact match: Example I want all cells that contain the word CLOSED to turn RED. Some cells are listed as Closed - Relocated, others are Closed ect...

Thanks,

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

You could use the following "Formula Is" conditon...

=ISNUMBER(MATCH("*closed*",A1,0))

If "closed is always the 1st 6 characters you could also use...

=LEFT(A1,6)="closed"
